How about this?

http://raleigh.craigslist.org/msg/284996001.html


Remember I want something that is going to give me great sound for live shows, not recording.

That cab isn't exactly great, just "good".
And don't get an open back combo, you won't be satisfied.

Since you like your V-amp pro so much, why not get a good power amp and cab to go with it?

This amp has a good, transparent and balanced sound that lets any preamp shine through it: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/msg/299498119.html

Not sure what the US prices for this usually are but I'd say that deal is good. Now add a $1000 cab (if you can do that) and your setup will kill unborn babies

This is the deal of the century. Seriously. If you don't get this you'll be stabbing yourself for years :-/

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/msg/297209595.html

This cab is a fucking madman. This is not one of the best "for the money", this is simply one of the best.

Looks like that is cash only and he will not ship.

I think I am going to keep my v-amp pro home for home recordings and get a live amp for shows and practice.

So are most people saying that I should get a say a 5150 head and a marshall cab? What is wrong with a peavey cab? How would I know what cab is best?

Is a half stack really that much better than a smaller combo or something?


Peter

theres nothing wrong with a peavey cab, theyre just typically harder to find. You'll know which cab is best when you try them out and one sounds better than the other.
Halfstack isnt really that much better than a small combo, its just that the monster amps with the tones people liek tend not to come in a combo form. Its all the sound you want.

For the kind of music you play, a 5150 through a Marshall cab with GT-75's would work perfect. Sell the MG (you will never regret doing this), the metalzone, and any other pedals you are not using and put that together with your ~$1000 budget and get yourself that setup. It will work perfectly.

What are GT-75's?

With a 5150 and a Marshall cab would I just need an overdrive pedal or anything else? What about from the pedals I have? I use them all now.

Are the only 5150's available used? Do they not make new ones anymore?

GT-75's are a type of speaker, most marshalls have them stock. You would not need any pedals for distortion with a 5150, and they can be had all over ebay and craigslist for cheap.

I had that exact same setup before. 5150 head w/ the 1960 cab. It sounds great but you're not gonna get super-tight compressed tone w/ out any other effects/pedals/etc. Chances are if you're into death metal, most amps wouldn't sound perfect-to-your-tastes just alone. I used a BOSS Ge-7 eq in the loop and it sounded perfect for most modern metal tones.....also, if you're not familiar with any of these gears, do some research or go out and try them if you can, just so that you're not buying shit that you don't know much about.

EDIT: My rig was a little old, but I sold the whole thing on craigslist for $700 so I'm sure you could get a decent condition one for around that price.

+1 I'd say look at 5150's if you have the money and pair it with your EQ. Or I'd second the Ampeg VH-140C for a more old-school DM sound.

I'd say the a stock 5150 alone sounds raw for Hard rock, or if cranked, you can get some clasic metal, but alone, it isn't enough for DM, you'll need some external effect.

Umm, plenty of death metal and metalcore bands use bare-bone 5150 setups and they pretty much slay everything tonewise. The last thing a 5150 needs is a boost/overdrive...

Anything with FIVE preamp tubes is going to eviscerate unborn fetuses even at bedroom levels, I don't know what the hell he's talking about.

If that tone alone is your ideal metal tone especially for DM.......I don't even know what to say. I've owned it for a year, in addition to trying out numerous other 5150's/6505's, you're seriously telling me that at bedroom levels, that amp has a dead-on perfect DM tone.....

And you're telling us that the most commonly used modern high gain amp used by death metal bands these days is only good enough for cranked rock?

The 5150 has about 10x more gain than is even remotely necessary for any music ever. It dosent need ANYTHING as far as a boost goes.
