Hey everyone! i am starting to play guitar, never played it before and i am very excited!!!

So im going to get straight to the point: I bought a Schecter Omen 6 (ordered it, not arrived yet) and im a big metal fan (pantera, slayer, children of bodom, lamb of god, etc., basically, anything metal).

I am now looking for an amplifier.

Here are my choices:

-Line 6 Spider IV, 75 watts
-Peavey Valveking 112, 50 watts


So basically, to play metal the best, which amp should i get and why?

Thanks to all responses, very appreciated!!!

Get the Peavey. I had one and it was great for heavy rock/metal, I actually sold mine because I couldn't get the sorts of cleans out of it that I wanted; then again, I don't play metal. Look at Jet City amps too; I have one, and it's great for what I do, but better for the really heavy stuff.

out of those 2, the peavey, no question.

but the jet city would be better again if you can swing one for the same money. i know in europe you can (from thomann), but you might not be in europe.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

i think so (assuming you're talking about the jet city), but it does depend on exactly how loud you mean by "not too loud". I don't gig and i think mine sounds pretty good at the volumes i play at- the master's probably around 1 or so, around 85-95dB. But i don't share any walls with neighbours.
