    I assure you. You will get use out of all of them.

    I played a new ENGL Powerball 2 and that amp was stupid good. Couldn't believe how great the clean channel was.

    Ok. Years ago I had a Fireball 100. The shared eq was the only downside.

    Would you buy the Savage 120 over the Purple Nightmare?

    Plus this is the ultimate tone I've heard in a while:

    So i'll go with something else to the above.

    1) My favourite, the VHT/Fryette pitbulll (you want the UL, but, listen to John Browne's demo of the CL, as it still has plenty gain, and 2 channel)
    2) Go synergy. That way once you have the base hardware, you canm just change preamp modules when you get bored. And there's a good selection to choose from as well.

    Very Recto sounding in the mid to high end, tighter than a nuns box in the low end. It's like the perfect blend between a Recto and a VHT/Fryette Pittbull. Saturates like a Recto with the gain up, very gritty and grindy with the gain down lower and the onboard boost engaged. Seems to be the only amp that fits all your needs, and the fact you can customize the options on them adds a lot more credence to it being the amp you should buy.

    No interest in modelers?

    I have a Kemper that I run into a Mesa 20/20 and it absolutely rips.

    Its a refined 5150 from everything i have read/heard. Looks like a great amp.

    Word.

    Granted, I've wanted an AxeFX since 2005, I had a brief period when I had the cash to buy either an AxeFX or a killer head. Due to not being able to pick one amp that had everything I wanted (JP2C was the closest and I probably would have been very happy with it) I went AxeFX III and couldn't be happier.
    Perfection is the enemy of progress.

    Thank you guys for all of your comments. It's very interesting to read.

    I think my shortlist is down to the Savage MK2 or Purple Nightmare.

    Hello
    What modern amps are closest to the tones of a 5150? I really like the raw and grindy mids.

    I’m not saying that I don’t want a 6505, but I would love to have some of the new features modern amps have.
