Hey Guys!!

This is
!!!The Gear for Metal Thread: Version 2.0!!!
You can ask a question here about the gear you need for playing Metal. If you are Practicing or Gigging IT DOESN'T MATTER!
I and some other guys will politely answer them, or you could just pick a gear that you like in the list bellow and ask us what our opinion is

Just remember to Post your:
Budget (post NUMBERS and currency)
Location
New or used
Gigging or no
the Bands that you play
and your preference (handles pedals well, has an FX loop, single channel, multi channel, digital, etc.)


ALL Sub-Genres are accepted, Like Thrash,Black,Metal Core, Everything that has a use of High Gain in them.
Mid gain genres are also accepted but you must have a high gain genre as your main genre

So ask away!!!!

celestion.com
as far as i have experienced, the v30s are great for metal. these paired with g12 k100s make a nice cab. g12t 75 is often used as well, but does not produce as clean of a bottom end
eminence.com
a large number of these speakers are suited to metal, including the texas heat, the governor, the swamp thang, the manowar, the black powder, and the high wattage legend.
warehousespeakers.com
basically equals to the celestions but at a cheaper price. i have found these to be better sounding in personal opinion

You can find Vettas for $400-$500 (IDK the conversion)

Also, the Marshall 8100 is VERY good. Definetely worth checking out. In Flames used one from Lunar Strain all the way to Whoracle. Then they changed to 5150s and Laney VH100Rs. Chuck Schuldiner from Death (RIP) used a 8100 as well.

Yeah its mainly because of Chuck that i went looking for it.
From what I've gathered, the 8080 is pretty much the combo version of the 8100, is that true?
(I would get a vetta, but then again, nothing around here )

So nothing to do with quality? odd considering the TS808 is $100 more expensive than the TS9. Just gain, parts, and knobs?

so you cant get Maiden on a B-52 ??

when you get it, EQ it a bit and try it out, then if you cant get your tone then get the 808.
but the B-52 can get those bands alone. you just have to EQ it right

Id go with the greenbacks. The legends do not have a very pronounced mid to high range. If you paired them with your 5150 it would sound muddy IMO.
