So i have sold off my Marshall JVM410 head that i normally use with my Gibson Les Paul and have been in the market for a new head to replace it. For this purpose, i am looking for a versatile head that will go from opeth jazzy clean to a saturated chunky rhythm and sweet lead tone. and could really use your insight in helping me decide for those who have had experiences with the amps that i am considering and about to mention. But first, what i disliked about the JVM are as follows. -Too trebly and hi-mid focused for my taste, you know that "ssshh" Marshall characteristic. -Problems with quality, i had to take it to the tech several times due to loose tubes sockets, and power shortages, and volume drops. -Playing lead on this amp sounds rather shrill instead of warm, and is very uninspiring to play. Generally, this amp did pretty well for classic rock and old school metal which i often play with this rig, but now i am looking for a new sound that i keep hearing in my head. At the current stage, here are the contenders that i am looking at. 1. ENGL Savage 120: Second hand and looks to be in good quality at $2000, however i have seen in one of their namm show videos with the staff saying that they are discontinuing this model due to complications in finding components and may be issuing a Savage II, albeit it is unknown when. 2. ENGL Marty Friedman Inferno: Quite interested in this one but have had rarely seen any reviews and video demos so i am quite unsure what to expect but the description does intrigue me and it is in my price range and around the same price as the Savage. 3. EVH 5150III Stealth: Another one that i am interested and would like to try out. One of the local dealer has one in stock (the EL34) version, but as i went to the store today i was unable to try it as they were shooting a live video for some music school. 4. Bogner Uberschall: Last but not least, i have really liked what i have read and seen in videos for this amp so far but have never tried it myself and none carry em stock over where i live, and this will be the only one that i will not be able to try. With this being said, the high gain channel is my priority, and although i know all these amps can deliver in this regards, i am also looking to use this head to play in standard tuning and with softer styles of music as well, ranging from Beatles clean to Gary Moore, Opeth, classic NWOBHM. and perhaps with my 7 string guitars covering modern artists like Sylosis, Belakor, Decrepit Birth. Again, i would love your insight in regards to past experience with these amps i mentioned so i have a better idea of what i can expect as i hope this purchase will last me a long time.
