buying a head and cabinet

I'm gonna be trading in my 2 combo amps for some cash, and then i'm getting a head and cab. Any ideas? I hear the marshall cabs give a real bassy tone. And i've been looking at the peavey 5150 II head. Alot of the guys i listen to recommend it, and i played a 5150 and dug it, i can only guess the 5150 II will be all that and better. Any suggestions? Try and stay away from the marshalls on suggestions though, cause if i do happen to go marshall head, i already know which one i want. Thanks in advance.

edit: i must add, i play alot of hardcore/metalcore. So i good distortion is in need, but also a great clean tone. I like ot have a nice treble, but yet some good bass sound for when i need it.

They are relatively unknown for making stacks but B-52 has some killer shit. I looked on harmonysentral.com awhile back and there were nothing but good reviews so I got it. $600 for the half-stack and it ranks up there with Marshall and Mesa, no joke.

2 different kinds of dist. on it, real saturated tone and more of a bluesy distortion. Clean is real good too, I use a DOD Grunge on the clean and even at 10 for both level and master it doesn't get muddy. You'll only need master and level at about 4 though. Speakers sound like Celestion 40's with B-52's own twist, good sound. Umm...built sturdy as hell too.

Go Carvin. MTS series or Legacy. They both have kickass distortion (they're both tube amps), and have great clean sound.

Have you played any of the amps mentioned above, or even read reviews and researched for yourself? Had you done so, you would know that the 5150, Marshalls and B-52 are not shit by any means.

Then your post on the Egyptian Scale topic "Ask someone from Egypt!"

I have concluded that you sir, are a fucking moron.

why the hell would i go and buy some "man's amp" and then change out the insides? It'll prolly be hard like shit to find, considering i've never heard of it before, and its prolly over 1,000 bucks, then another 500 or so to switch everything out and buy the new shit to put it in. Just doesn't make sense. And the 5150 II isn't shit.

if you want the cream of the crop than you must pay. youve never heard of it cause yes, it is pricey and a lot of people dont want to shell out that kind of cash for it. but the tone is out of this world! the mod will cost more than a marshall head.
check it out www.egnater.com
his cabs are $1100 and the pre is $2k

you give me the information and you expect me to buy it, when 1, i've never played one, and 2, if i'm gonna pay 3k+, it better beat ALL the competition. But even if it did, i still wouldn't buy it cause its probably not my style.

oh yeah, i'm buying a 5150 II cause i love eddie van halen, yep, you've figured me out. I have an ibanez, does that make me a korn lover? Dumbass, eddie doesn't even use the 5150 II, he uses the 5150, and i don't need a death metal blaring heavyness. Your an ass.

ok, so the jazz players who play clean, and could kick your ass anyday in their playing are pussies? The classical playing yngwie does that you can't touch makes him a pussy? dude, your such a fag.
