    Would you say those amps capture or is similar to a hotrodded Marshall tone? I'm trying to find a small tube amp that can capture 80s tones (Extreme, Skid Row, etc) with the ability to push it into metal territory (Ozzy, maybe Rammstein with a pedal if needed).

      I like them don't get me wrong, but for not much money the 6505 has a lot more features I was after like attenuation, headphone jack, reverb etc...

        Fair play, they are more versatile.

          They are sort of descended from a 'rod Marshall sound, but the execution is still quite different. There is massively more body, punch and grit, more 'modern' flavour and feel. I don't mean that with '80s chops, gutar touch and suitable gain they can't produce something like that, they are just not '80s by nature.

          My best bet would be a cheap but awesome RnR workhorse Origin 20 head with a dedicated booster pedal. Also, the mini Peavey 6505MH or the EVH LBX heads are worth checking. Or a tiny power amp and an AMT S1 / S2 preamp pedal that is voiced after the king of the era Soldano SLO100 head - but that's a whole different story.

            Yeah, I'm currently looking at the 6505 MH. As I live in an apartment I need to be able to tone it down now and then, so the switchable attenuation and headphone jack is a plus. Reverb and having a dedicated clean channel also helps (though I'm assuming the clean isn't great by Fender standards). Of course, none of that matters if the tone isn't there!

              "Almost functional" is what comes to my mind in a head-to-head comparison with the cleans of a good Fender amp

              It's definitely not made for this.

                Check out the DSL20H or the DSL1R.

                  Laney Ironheart may be worth a look.

                    I’d suggest looking at the Blackstar Venue series, maybe the HT-20.

                      . . . we all prefer differant sounds and hear things very differantly from one another . . . but i will take THIS sound (95% of the time) over any hotrodded Marshall tone.

                        I will take this over any DSL/TSL (Marshall's ''hot rod amps'').

                        YMMV
