Best amp for playing Death Metal "Live"?

I am been home recording now for a bit over a year and I have been using my V-Amp Pro. I am now looking to play some live gigs and start jamming and was wondering if I could get some advice as to what amp would be the best for playing Death Metal live? Anthing from $1000 and under.

Could I use my V-Amp Pro live? I have a Marshall MG Series 250DFX that I use to practice with in my apartment. Could I run the V-Amp Pro through the Marshall MG Series 250DFX for live and practice with a band?

Any info would be great!!!


Peter

Not really, I don't think a Marshall MG is going to cut it in a band situation with any 4x12.

Yeah that's a good suggestion too. But his spending limit is 1000$, he can do a little better.

Like I said man you have a ton of options buying 2nd hand. Peavey 5150/6505, XXX, Ultra(same as XXX). Perhaps some Mesa Boogie Mark heads, definitely an Ampeg VH140C head(400-500$) with plenty of cash left over for a very good cabinet(I suggest a Vader or a Framus).

BV is a great suggestion though, but if I had 1000$ I'd probably get either an Ampeg or a Peavey XXX. Legendary Suffocation tones!

If you're happy with tones from ur V-amp, then it's not a bad idea to get a poweramp for it and run it that way. That's probably what I'll be doing with my PODXT since I don't have an amp right now...

Can I run the V-amp pro through my marshall combo amp?

if you have a line in, its possible... but doing this mind you will bypass ALL of your marshall's knobs, including volume. So it will basically be liike plugging the Vamp just into a speaker. Personally, what i'd do, is i'd split the guitar signal, sent it likth thiss...

guitar --> vamp --> line input
(gitt) --> marshall input

and mix the tones to get something karazy going on.

Eh.... I wouldn't bother trying to utilise your V-amp Pro, especially not through the Marshall. The other guitarist in my band uses the Head version with a 4x12 cab and he can never be heard in the mix, even my thin-sounding JCM900 can be heard over him no matter how much I turn down. Just buy the Ampeg, as its 100% perfect for what you want, it even comes in a 2x12 combo if you didn't want to lug around a huge cab.

Um no, it's not going to bypass the volume knob bleeding. You need to run it in the FX loop return or aux in, the EQ and gain knobs won't work on it that way, but the master volume certainly will.

I would not suggest modeling devices for live use. "PodXT Live" my ass, they're not designed for being played in real live situations, at least not effectively unless you're going straight to the mixer. But if your club has no PA you're fucked. Through a poweramp and cab it's most definite that they won't sound anywhere as good as a real amp. The EQ range of any digital modeler is not dead on like a real amp, it won't cut through a band situation without some extreme EQ'ing, which doing it after a digital preamp will not produce good results. EQ'ing a digital signal will sound fuzzy and artificial. Ask some dude here that has used XT's live how much he hates them.

Krisiun use PodXT Pro's live, I've seen em 3 times and they sounded great, but I was later informed they were going direct to the PA with the cab-simmed XLR outs. Stage volume wasn't very loud either.

If you do some E-baying, you might be able to get away with a rack set up for that price. Such as a POD XT Pro and Poweramp. For about 1,500 i got away with a pod xt pro, crown power amp which delivers 600 bone crushing watts, Korg Rack Tuner. Rack mount power supply, and a gator rack thats got wheels. Check it out. It's not tube, but with POD's modeling it sounds really close to it.

Line 6 Vetta's are excellent at producing brutal death metal tones.

And they are also a giant waste at $1600.

Trust me, as someone who was playing Line 6 stuff exclusively from 2002 up until about two weeks ago, they are terrible for any serious extreme metal application.
