Hello Guitar Maniacs!!!

My brother has a Peavey EVH 5150 head that I have sent off to be refurbished to working condition. So far I have heard that the Vintage 30's are what sound great with this head when playing metal and rock. My brother primarily plays Pantera but what I wanted to know is this.....

I recently came across an MG412A and an MG412B full stack for a pretty good price, now how would those marshal amps sound with some vintage 30's in them? would they sound decent with the speakers that are already in it with the 5150?
It’s for his graduation gift, so I’m looking to spend close to or less than $500… I found the stack for $250 hardly used, and I can pick up some V30’s on eBay for 4 for $100. So if you have any better suggestions let me know, my max is $500 and I’m looking at mainly 4x12 only. As I said before it’s a 5150 head…

Thanks guys

MGs aren't very good. Get your bro a nice 2x12 instead. Avatar makes good cabs.

Yeah, stay away from MG's. You can get a used Marshall 4x12 cab with celestions for under 500 bucks. A 1960 halfstack is way better than an MG full stack. Besides, nobody wants to lug around a full stack.

I think it is a great idea for your Brother's Bday. Not the MG cab. The idea. By the time you buy the speakers and replace all of them you probably could have found the real deal with decent speakers already like Chetbango is suggesting. A 1960b.

In addition to the crappy speakers in the MG cab, the construction is not as good, the wiring, the jacks, etc. Won't do a 5150 justice. If it is all you can find then your plan 'A' is better than giving him a stock MG412A.

How old is Brother going to be?
How many days/weeks until the BDay?
What is your closest major city to check Craigslist with.
Avatar and Vadar make good cabs too in you budget range - at least 212s.
Why do you think he needs a full stack. Does he gig? Is he a rock star?
Can you please take pics and post them here when it's all said and done?

What about a Krank Rev stack ? ive got a buddy that said he would give me a hardly used one because he is moving for $750 i know its a little more but ehh and i also found a Krank Krankenstein on craigslist pretty decent price

How would these sound with a 5150 ?
should i just stick to looking at other models like the 1960's?
