my band is looking to start using stacks at gigs and whatnot. we're on a tight budget however, say about 400-600$.

so far ive been browsing the guitar center web site and i found a few in my price range and was wondering how well they would do at a show.

BTW, we play deathcore/metalcore/hardcore think like carnifex, and me and my guitarist both have EMG 81/85 combos in our guitars.


so this one says it has vintage 30's which get a good rep around here but how would they hold up with a peavey valveking head?

and then i found this one which is muchhh cheaper, which is better in our case but i don't wanna sacrifice tone for cheaping out.

and we also have 2 other cabs which happen to be 1960 Marshall JCM 4x12 B Cabs and we will be using the marshall under either of thesse amps.


so let me know what you guys think

go for an avatar cabinet, much higher build quality for the price range.

get 2 2x12's as opposed to a half stack. it'll be easier for everyone lol i regret getting my 4x12 because of its size already and i didnt even get my head yet!

07 Fender American Deluxe Strat
07 Fender Custom Telecaster
09 Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster
09 Fulltone OCD V.4
10 Ibanez WH-10 V.2
09 Splawn SuperStock
10 Jet City JCA-20
97 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

I would look for something used.
I recently got a new cab for $300 used,
and i love it, the only flaw was a big rip in the tolex
on the bottom, which is nothing some duct-tape can't fix.

I would go for the Peavey in your situation, higher wattage-rating,
Blue Marvels, much cheaper, you would have extra money left over.

EDIT:
i +1 Avatars aswell, look into them.
