Line 6 is garbage. That being said, I don't really like the Marshall sound, so out of the amps here I've played through I've gotta say the Peavey sounds Fanfuckingtastic, and Mesa's right up there with it. Although a Mesa's gonna run you a shittonne more. I'd actually say when it comes down to the two it'll be Mesa for quality of manufacturing and parts, with Peavey right on its asspipe, and for tonality, like always, its users choice. I've always found that Peavey has more variety to it, you can tweak your 5150, Bandit, whatever, to a tone you can rock out to. Fucktabulus.

EDIT: I should add that saying "Best GENRE piece of equipment" is stupid, in my opinion. You could plug your guitar into anything you want if its what you're going for. Maybe some things shouldn't be done, but it doesn't mean it can't. USER'S CHOICE. I'm sure this has been discussed here somewhere.

I agree Line6 is quite poopy. But they are great practice amps. and I realize that these amps could be used for any style of music but I think someone interested in less aggressive music wouldn't require as much gain.

I say peavey 5150's or mesa are the best. they both have the beafiest bottom end, and nice bright mids and smooth highs. marshall cabs are great but i don't dig their heads.

my guitarist bought the peavey EVH and I fucking love it. the difference bettween the 2 and 3rd version is the presence knobs. it just sparkles and melts as much as it shreds. can't say enough about it...truly next level.

Had a 5150II for about 5 years now, that baby's never let me down. Sounds just as amazing now as it did when I bought it, and it's quite versatile. The bandit 112 combos are also the best sound 450$ will buy, portable, and loud as hell. Peavey is tops in my book.

I think i'm the best....oh you mean amps...

Probably Peavy, but i don't know much about guitars and amps, i just play them. Whatever ErDiablo said goes for me too.

Well, tubes are no longer the "be all, end all" of tone, for certain applications you may even be better off with a solid state (as long as you have a good one). They are more reliable, require less maintenance, and the sound can sometimes be tighter than tube. That being said, I would never record an album with a solid state amp, but that's just personal preference. There is something about those bandits though, they just sound amazing for some reason, and they're super cheap.

Did they change the Bandit in recent years? Cause I've had on in around 91 and another around 95, and I remember the distortion being similiar to a Metal Zone pedal.
