I'm not a well off guy, but sometime this year I want to upgrade my amp, and I'm thinking of going half stack.
The amp that caught my attention is the Ibanez Toneblaster series:
Anyone have experience with these? Any good? Or do you know any good alternatives within the same sort of price range.
I play metalcore/nu-metal/alt rock so it needs to be good for thick, distortion chords and clean melodic parts. I currently play through a Marshall AVT 100.
I've not played one for more than a couple of minutes but it's hardly much of an upgrade from your current amp, I'd advise looking on the used market and trying to score a second hand amp on the cheap, a 5150 is a good bet though it's not great on the cleans, hell a JCM 2000 is a good bet as if you're lucky you might be able to pick one up for about £400-450
