As a starting point it's only meant for home use. I sorely need an upgrade from my 19 year old Peavey Studio Pro 112... I will probably be running mostly pedals as drive/distortion so a great base sound is essential. Too much drive on the amp often ruins the sound of od/dist pedals, so if the amp has an overdrive or distortion channel, I'll look at it as a bonus. I don't have a cab, but if i end up with a head i can always borrow one until i can afford one. So far i have considered and/or tested the following: Boss Katana 50 (tested, not too wowed) Blackstar Id Core 100 (tested, liked better than the Katana (?!)) Joyo Zombie 20 Peavey 6505mh (tested, s'goooood) Short list, i know. That's why i'm looking for input. Amps i have had, just to exclude those from suggestion: Orange Micro Terror (meh) Peavey Valveking 20 (sold to get 6505mh which i never did) Randall RD5 (great metal sound, but that's it) Orange OR15 (too loud and tought me that i'm not crazy for the Orange sound) I have a pretty restricted budget so if any suggestions cater to that i'll be happy as a pig in shit! If not that's okay. As long as it works well on low volumes too and is worth saving up for.
