So, I can finally afford a REAL amp...
Got a decent job (park ranger :3 ), pays decent, and I can finally afford an amp.
All my life I've been using a crappy 1x10 practice amp, or a mostly-crappy Carvin 2x12, but now I can afford anything in the $1200-$1600 range.
Type of sound I'm going for.
Metal. Iced Earth metal. I know Jon uses a custom Larry amp, and they're nigh impossible to get, but what's close? I don't want to have to have anything modded. It doesn't have to be the exact tone, or close to it, but in the thrashy-vein.
A good clean is a MUST. I hate playing an amp with killer distortion, only to have the clean lick butt.
I'm looking for a head and then a cab or two later; any good pairings?
What type of effects should I look for?
Thanks for the input.
