    buying a new amp

    hey guys
    I'm in the market for a new amp, I will be using it for a bedroom amp but still want to beable to jam with a band (nothing professional just fun)
    I pretty much had my heart set on the EVH 5150 50watt 2x12 combo because of the power level knob
    but i started looking around at other amps reviews and they all say sound awesome like the blackstart HT metal 60 , ENGL thunder 50, ENGl screamer 50, hughes & kettner tubemeister 36.
    So no i'm undecided. What do you guys think.

    6505+ is the ultimate no-bullshit bedroom amp man. The thing sounds fucking awesome at all volumes.

    I think any variation of 5150 or 6505 will get you there, whether peavey or evh.
