So Metallica is my favourite band by far and I love the Garage Inc tone, which turns out was made with a Wizard MC.

I'm looking at the Wizard MCII, but I'm hearing the new Wizards are made with a different transformer? Does that change the tone much?

Also I'm from Europe (Barcelona), so I want to know that if something happens to the amp, I can send it to an authorized tech in Europe (?).

I can't speak for the difference between the transformers, but my MCII has the V transformer. I find this amp with the stock E34Ls and fairly hot ceramic pups yields a VERY aggressive angry sounding voicing. I'm sure you could get close to that Metallica tone with eq tweaks. EQ is very responsive and offers lots of tones.

AWESOME amp! Good luck!
