I got a B52 LG-100a head and a Marshall 4x12 cab. I've never used a half stack before and I'm trying to find some good tone settings for Hardcore, Metalcore, and Metal. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Turn it on and find a good setting yourself. Not meaning to be a prick, but this is the only way you'll ever learn anything; hands on experience. Learn how to effectively use EQ and understand how the different frequencies react with one another. Your ears are your best friend

just start out with all knobs at 5 (including gain) and move em around until you get what you want

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Set everything to 5 and tweak
not enough gain? adjust to taste,
to bassy? take away bass
finding settings arent that difficult, and only you know what you want, we cant hear the tone
in your head

But you'll probably want to scoop it, so I'd keep the mids low and the other knobs high

try everything at 7 and volume at 5 on your dirty channel same with clean and then tweak form there

Thanks guys, I think I'm gonna just mess with em till I find my own sound. I just wanted some tones to jump off of. It's in that area, so I'm just gonna tweak em until I get what I want. Thanks again!

Disagree 100%, but otherwise, good advice

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
