I'm pretty content with my B52, but hey, it's personal preference, just get out there and try them out. If you can spare it, the 6505+ is fvcking sexy, haha.

All you need for gigging is a good combo or halfstack, and the live guy will mic it up.

Unles you're one of those fags who "needs" a stack to look cool, it's overkill live.

Everything we said has tubes.

Edit: try the B52 with a tube screamer or something. It's tube, and, do your research. Most tube amps aren't very cheap.

I'm looking to get some, well more professional looking equipment. I had a line6 spider valve, but our drummers basement flooded so the government is going to pay us the money back because it was their fault. So I have about 600-750$$'s to spend.

Pffttt.. you don't need a stack, ESPECIALLY, if you're gigging. It would be more troublesome to move around. Don't be like me and buy a heavy stack. Get a combo.

I have a Bugera halfstack and it's amazing for the price. Be wary, though, if you get a crap one it'll be quite the pain. I hear the newer models are more reliable than they were when they first came out.

I played a B-52 AT-100 halfstack when I was shopping for new amps and ended up with the Bugera, it sounded good but the reliability complaints dissuaded me from buying it.

I, personally, hate the tone of all the 5150s/6260s I've ever played, maybe it's just not my style.

I have a Valveking 112, and I've played the 212 and halfstack versions, give those a try. They're awfully good for how cheap they are.

Wow! Aren't you helpful!

Is that what we've come to? Not even suggesting amps, just saying: needs to be tubed?

If you can't suggest anything, don't.
#21
Hey, who doesn't like stacks? Even though they take up a lot of room, they sound and look awesome.

I am not sure what amp you should go with. I don't know of any good stacks in your price range, so you should just go with a 6505 combo.

you're not gunna get a good stack for that price, you wont get a good tube amp for that price, put them both together, and it equals not happening. i have a spider 3 150w 2x12 combo that i use for gigs and recording, and its probably one of your better bets. it has more gain on tap than any guitarist should ever need (although i insist on using all of it :P), its got built in delay, reverb, phaser, everything you need for soloing. the cleans are decent so long as you dont use emg pickups with a boost switch turned on. there are 4 completely independant footswitchable channels that are stored in its digital memory so it doesnt matter if you accidentally move knobs while its travelling, and you can assign each channel an amp model, including it allows you to double up the amp model and just change effects, eq, volume, etc. the in between channels arent very convincing (blues, twang, crunch) but they're still usable, and if nothing else its a time saver. its an amp, then you buy cabs and its a head, then you buy a mesa and its your favorite backup and/or practice amp.

ps i dont personally have cabs or a mesa head, but it seems like thats what your after. my setup is more like an ibanez with emgs and a boost switch (lol) through either the line 6 or my marshall head with house cabs on the rare occasion the house has cabs

Well at this point I have no amp, and about 700 dollars to spend so I figure I might as well get a stack for gigging.


My old amp that got trashed was a Line6 Spider Valve with Bogner and it was amazing I loved it. But I want to be able to spend all the money I get and I think I can get better for 700.

Ok. You said before you don't have a clue about this. Yeah? We have a clue. Most people here know what they're talking about? You want something that looks cool? Ok, get an MG stack. Nothing cooler then a stack with Marshall on it. You want something that sounds good? Listen to what we are telling you or get the **** out.
#35
and the best for that pricerange is a combo, but if you insist on sh*t, then buy sh*t. You don't need anyone's recommendation here to do that.

I know what you're saying, it sounded especially crappy past that point, but I did try them with like every settings combination I could think of and I didn't like it, period. Not my style exactly, that amp.

Well I've played 6505 and 5150 half stack and I love the hell outta both of them, but would a combo be able to be heard clearly over a halfstack un-mic'd on a stage?

yes. 50 tube watts is just about as loud as 100 tube watts, and it sounds louder than 100 SS watts.

Just because it is a halfstack does not mean it will nessicarily be louder.

A 50w combo and 50w head will pretty much be the same volume.
