Hello, I've been looking for a new amp for a while now but I simply can't decide which one to get. It's main use will be for a death metal/deathcore/prog band I recently joined but I also want to use it at home so it should sound decent at low volumes aswell. I'm looking for a modern, dry metal or clean tone like Intervals, for example, has but I also want to be able to get a more evil sound out of the amp like Meshuggah or Vildhjarta does (Thall). I have a Bogner 4x12 and an ENGL E212 Pro cab, both with V30 speakers and my main guitar at the moment is a Schecter KM7 in Drop Ab. My budget is around 800 EUR and I'm looking to buy used. I might be willing to up my budget but I think I'd only really do that for a Kemper. I also want to say that I'm not interested in full size 100w+ heads, they are overkill for my needs and not really comfortable to transport, that's also the reason why I'm selling my recently bought one already. So far I've been considering: Laney Ironheart 60 (about 425 EUR used): Cheapest of the bunch and seems to fit my needs perfectly, from Olas videos I also really like the sound. However, it doesn't have a MIDI in and I heard the built quality could be better. EVH 5150 III 50w (about 750-800 EUR used): Seems like a good pick for any kind of metal, really, but the volume jump between channel 1 and 2 could be a problem for Prog stuff and unlike the other two it doesn't have a built in powersoak. Hughes and Kettner Grandmeister 36 (or 40) (about 700 EUR used): Appears to be the most versitile of all the tube amps I listed with the least weight, the most features and built in effects. Just not sure how the tone compares to the other two for death metal stuff and I can't seem to find decent metal tests with it. I've only heard that the other two amps are better for metal. Kemper Power Head (anywhere between 1500 and 2000 EUR used): About twice as or more expensive than the others but with that one I'd have everything I want and more. Main reasons against this one is that I've heard it's not really worth it for using with passive guitar cabs as the cabs will colour every profile somewhat similiar and I really don't want to sell mine as I've pretty much just bought both of them. I'd also rather spend more time getting comfortable with my playing instead of fiddling with patches/profiles.I think I'll definitely get one in a few years though, just not sure if I should bother with one already as I haven't been playing for that long yet and 1500 - 1600 EUR is the absolute maximum I'd be willing to spend on one right now. Any thoughts or recommendations? (Edit: Also forgot to say that I'm unable to test any of these amps myself, except maybe the profilier, as the closest musicstore to me doesn't sell any of these brands.) Thanks in advance!
