I would recommend spending more on the amp than the guitar or at least increase your budget for the amp and reduce what you plan to spend on the guitar. The reason being, the amp is about 80%...

New speakers take a LONG time to break in. My Eminence Governors took at least 30 hours to come into their best sound. Best thing I can recommend is use a looper pedal and play a well-rounded loop...

But these three are largely responsible for where...

If I would have started learning alternate picking 18 years ago I'd have been as good as I am today after 5 years of playing.

Start learning NOW.

This. I've actually taken it a step further with mine and run a 5751 in V1 and a 12AT7 in the PI position (both are lower-gain than a 12AX7). Cleans are vastly better than a stock 6505+. I can't...

I think a 6505+ is already the better amp for your genre, TS.

Out of the 8 or so Dual Recs I've tried (mostly heads), I have never understood what all of the hype was about. And I spent...

1. I stood directly in front of Mark Morton's (Lamb of God) 412 cab a year ago and find your claim to be totally off-base. His tone was utterly godly (no pun intended).

2. Most of the bands I've...

412 cabs sound bigger/deeper, by quite a bit. That alone is the reason I have one. But you can also run different combinations of speakers to try to get a unique tone. Also, at least with an...

I played an HT Metal not expecting much, and that's just what it delivered -- nothing extraordinary. The only thing it has on a 6505 is a better clean tone. But if you're buying an amp for death...

You will need an HM-2 regardless of what amp you get. I run a 6505+ and an HM-2 and can get very close to the tone on The Jester Race. Even the 6505+ 112 sounds close enough to an original 5150...
