Hey guys so I'm in the market for a new tube amp/cab setup. I use an axe fx2, which I fucking love, but I wanted some nice pure tube tones in my setup as well.
I play stuff like goth metal/rock (like amorphis, swallow the sun, HIM, rasmus, etc.) and Nu and pop rock/metal type stuff like tool, marilyn manson, korn etc. where I still want a
nice heavy tone, with crisp highs and nice low end, not overly scooped, and nice chord voicings. for slower tempos.
I was looking at the peavey 6505+/6535, Engl powerball 2, and laney vh100r. Also recommend me any pedals that would improve my arsenal. I hear tubescreamers are good?
I want a good clean sound but I figured I could just use my Axe fx2 for the clean sounds and effects. Would I be able to hook my axe fx 2 up to the same cab as my amp head is in?
Any help would be appreciated
Personally I love my Mark V. Can do all sorts of tones including really great american cleans, british low and high gain sounds, and tones from the Mark I, IIC+, and IV. It also has a great reverb. While it is expensive I find it to be the best bang for your buck out there. The mark tone isn't for everyone though and if it's not for you go for something else.
