I 1200 dollars to burn... or shred as i like to say. I play metal, real metal, no core here. It needs to be a TUBE head, 2x12 cab setup with independant channels and really loud.... around 100 watts. Im looking at mesas but im very open. Any ideas?

Used Mesa/Boogie Mark III with Mesa/Boogie Rectifier Closed Back 2x12 (V30's). Either that or used 5150 with same cab.

I'm guessing this is for gigging? Unless you are playing Wembley Stadium you shouldn't need a 100 watt tube head. Unless you desperately need clean headroom, which I'm assuming you don't because you play shred metal.

I'd look around for a Mark IV combo.

Maybe a JSX, or XXX combo. Both of those can be had for about $600. Leaves plenty of money left over for a good cab if you buy the head, pedals, new tubes, or save up for a new guitar.

All that's been said, plus a Carvin Legacy (mostly because if it's good enough for Vai it's good enough for anyone).

...actually he probably does need clean headroom because he's playing shred metal/metal all together.

....and on top of that, for metal, you want big wattage and headroom, what you want is pre amp saturation....

That is the biggest FAIL I've seen so far on this entire forum. Except for that fender frontman topic with the tubescreamer hanging on...

I love that you hated your Mark III in your thread and now you are telling people to buy it.

Dude, don't insult the master. He wasn't recommending the cab, just the head, because he hates british voiced cab he has now, but he likes the amp.

It's just the opposite, to play metal you want a lot of headroom so you can get high volume without the tubes breaking up, then adding OD/Distortion pedals.
