    I would keep that money aside and patiently seek out the multitude of amps to try out and demo until you find one that makes you happy. Just take your time.

      I ended up accidentally saying it to my girlfriend at the time. I said "Someone told me that Ben got with a really fat girl and he titty-****************ed her"

          Do you get all the sounds you want out of the JVM? You think you need the extra gain stages the 410 has? How does it sound when the volume is lower?




          the 410 doesnt necessarily have extra gain stages. The 2 channel versions can get just as dirty , they just stripped down the amount of modes on the 2 channel amps. The JVMs sound great at low volumes. If you want an inexpensive "swiss army knife " amp , the JVM is awfully hard to beat. Also the Peavey Classic 50 would be a good option as well as something like a Fender Hot Rod.

              Out of the big-name, conventional brands, I really like Mesa Boogie stuff. They're reliable, They sound good, and the resale is good. They seem to be relatively underpriced ATM, too. The parallel fx loop on lots of them could be a deal breaker though.



              My big question though; do you use a lot of pedals? Do you use fuzz pedals?



              Amps can be picky about how they take Fuzz Faces and Big Muffs.



              Also, check out:

              Fender Super Sonic

              Rivera stuff



              One more thing. Have you considered the rack route?

                  Yup. The JVM has all the gain you will ever need, but isn't necessarily strictly metal-voiced.

                          It pretty much handles everything. OD channel is OD2 on the 410. Plenty of gain, slightly more modern voicing. Crunch red is jcm800 niceness. Its really cool overall.

                              These went for $1500 before the market crashed and being a jubilee they will have excellent collectibility. Granted its not the silver tolex model but the circuit is identical.
