hi guys,

im new to the board, not yet a VHT owner, but hopefully very soon...

I'm looking at a 50/12 combo with the EQ. There's a big problem however, i live in australia, and id have to order it from the US, therefore im not able to play it. Will it do what i want it to do? I play most 80's heavy metal, and i want my tone to range from iron maiden to evergrey.

Also, i can get a Super 30 for the same price here in a Australia as i can the 50/12 from the US. DOes the super 30 have enough gain to cover my needs?

thanks in advance guys

Well, the Fifty/Twelve combo (w/EQ) must be a 2-EL34 version and will sure be a lot closer to what you want than the Super 30.

If you're hard core heavy metal, I'm wondering why you're considering combos of any brand.

thanx for teh reply,

basically, i dont gig, i dont have the room. i play in the back shed with my brother coz his drumkit is there, so im not gonna house an Ultralead in that hothouse :-) , money is also an issue. i just want a good amp, not a big and cumbersome one.
