Hey guys, Its my first post and I'm thinking of getting a VHT CL50. I play metal, mostly megadeth but also slayer, pantera, sabbath, metallica. Is the CL50 a good choice?

I own a 50CL. I think for extreme metal you have to get the EQ option. With the two overdrive channels you can dial in an 80's metal sound on one channel and a modern metal sound on the other. The UltraLead or CLX would be the best choice, but if money is a factor the CL50 is a good choice. Also, cabinet and speaker choice is a big factor. I started with an open-back VHT two-12" cab... not good for metal! I then got a closed-back two-12" with Vintage 30's... good but not great, too much mids. I now have a closed-back four-12" cab with Celestion H30's... great lows and better mids, this cab kills!

I have a 100CL and it can definitely get you there, just make sure you get one with the graphic.

I agree with the other guys......definately. And I'd also get the EQ.
