    Pull the trigger on new amp?

    Hi guys posted on here a couple of times about the same old thing' "what amp should i get" so this week I'm pulling the trigger on a laney ironheart studio. I'm almost certain on it. I currently have a orange dark terror which i was never really over impressed with it doesn't give me the growl I'm looking for, that oomph djent even. So i play trivium avenged sevenfold kind of stuff. The reason I'm posting is i can't try this amp out anywhere. Will it do justice to that tone. I'm only using bedroom amp but i can get it reasonabl loud. It probably won't be jamming with a drummer anytime. I want to pull the trigger this week because I'm maybe a month away from getting my custom Rhoads v and i want everything to be humming when it gets here. The v will have Duncan distortion and jazz pickups

    I certainly know a few happy customers. You can never be 100% sure without trying it out, but as long as you've watched enough demos and done your research you'll probably be pretty happy with your purchase.

    i tried one briefly and liked it - I didn't really get to dial it in properly but it had a lot of growl but was still very clear.

    also we only managed to try it in 1 Watt mode as it was so feckin loud. it would have probably sounded a bit fatter in full 15 watt mode.

    I was considering getting one at one point for home jamming recording,
