Hi. I have a strange problem. It seems that like many of you, I`m on a continuous tone quest. I own: Line 6 HD 147 (HATE IT) Peavey Vypyr 15w with Eminence Alpha 8a speaker (LOVE IT) I have owned: a Bugera 333XL with a Marshall 4x12 cab V30`s and 75`s in x pattern (did not like it at all) an Axe FX || with Equator D5 monitors and a EV zlx p12 and the Marshall cab with a power amp (sold it because I thought the little vypyr sounded better...yeah that happened) While I love the bedroom volume of the little vypyr for all kinds of lead tones (playing along backingtracks etc), but at louder volumes it sounds harsh and "transistor like". It also sounds a bit muddy and fizzy when playing heavy riffs at any volume. I have tried a EVH 5153 LBX lunch box, and it sounded nice, but not quite the tight riff tone I am looking for while still having enough gain and saturation for lead tones while remaining clear, not muddy. Am I simply expecting too much? Or have I just not found what I`m looking for yet. Been looking at Engl ironball and EVH LBX 15w, but I have heard wonderful things about the Mesa mark v25 and the PRS Archon. I realize that these are at wildly different price points, but I am wondering if its worth saving up to. I was thinking of combining a lunch box type tube amp with a cheap 2x12 cab and throw the v30 speakers in there. Any thoughts?
