Looking for a new amp
Alright guys, I need your help once again. I'm looking to upgrade my amplifier, and I don't know where to start. Right now I'm using a Marshall MG100HDFX head and a Crate 4x12 cabinet, and I think I'm at the stage where I should get a nice(r) one. I want the option to gig with it, but also have the ability to play it in a basement/apartment. I don't have any particular loyalty to a brand, so Ampeg to Vox, it's all open for me. I'm kind of eyeing a Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 18 right now, but I'm not sure it's the right one for me.
- Budget up to $600ish
- Using a Boss DS-1, Boss TR-2, and a DigiTech DigiDelay (I know they aren't the best, but I don't need fancy schmancy $150+ pedals right now)
- Good for Rhythm playing. That's right, I want it to sound great while I chugga chugga my arm off.
- Would like it to have a headphone jack so I can play at 2am.
- I play mainly hard rock and metal. (main influence is Metallica); but the occasional clean playing does happen.
I'll add to this list when I can think of other things or if someone brings up a good question/point.
