cob uses lee jackson gp1000 tube preamps, but they arent very versatile. 5150's can get a sound kinda like that but you have to mod them to hell with stuff to get good clean sounds out of them (well to me, someone who knows about electronics can probably do it in 5 minutes)

used crate bv120h head($300-$400) + used marshall 1960a 4x12 cab ($300-$400)
that would be great for black metal..... lots of gain, tons of volume, sounds pretty dark, and it has reverb, which is kinda a must for necro shit....
and it's all under a grand.

^rofl, yeah...

I dunno about the cabs there, but they're more expensive over here I think.. I was lucky getting mine for a good price but they're more about 5-600 here

there isn't a lot of Crate around though, but if you want to keep it cheaper I guess its a good option (I don't think they sound better then Engls, but if you're tr00 black metal that wouldnt mind all too much)

yeh, the people trying to sell line 6 spider II half stacks for $800....

i'd eat testicles if somebody was really stupid enough to buy a used line 6 spider 2 halfstack for 800 bone$. even if it's in mint condish.
you could buy one new for $800....

you'd be lucky to get rid of it for $500-$600 shipped. because shipping a halfstack is expensive.
