Hey Guys,

Iam currently using a Line 6 Spider but it sounds dreadful. I'm looking to buy a new one but am not sure which one is best for me. head n cabz or a combo. peavy, marshall,crate

I got about £1400 to spend and play Thrash Metal.

Thanks cheers

i'd go peavey or marshall over crate. a jcm900 or 800 with an OD might be good for you, or a peavey 5150 or 6506. im not positive for thrash tho; its not really my kind of music
Gear:
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Fender MIM strat with dimarzio pups
JCM800
Egnater Rebel 30
Takamine Acoustic
tons of pedals

if you're open for suggestions then i would say you should try an ENGL, you might like it

Is the PEAVY 6505 ok though.
What cabs are good? Marshall


Personally I would choose a JCM800 over a 6505 for thrash, but to each his own.

Also, as Cullen said, stay away from Peavey cabs. Look into Marshall, Mesa, Randall, or Krank for big name companies. I'm sure there are some small companies over there that will make you a decent cab for a relatively low cost (i.e. Avatar here in the U.S.).

Pick up a used mode four cab from ebay or an orange 2x12. You do realize you could afford a marshall JVM with that kinda cash...

I agree. 6505 does more hardcore sounds and EVH type stuff. But it has PLENTY of gain and will do thrash, and is a great all around metal amp. The JCM 800 is just the amp of choice for thrash.

JVM's are overrated.

Used Peavey 6505/5150 with a Marshall cab. An Engl Fireball would be great too!

In my opinion, try to find a used 5150 Combo in great condition. They're floating around everywhere. They sound TONS better than a 6505. The 5150 head with a good ol' Marshall cab is gonna sound great as well.

Two 4x12s? That's fecking lunacy - hope you've got a van and don't play venues with many stairs...

In the last ten years I have never seen a full stack anywhere except a hard rock arena concert. No need whatsoever.

Two cab's isn't lunacy, but it isn't a necessity.

I can fit both of my cabs, both of my heads, my guitar, all of my cables, and my pedals in my car and still have a seat open for a passenger. People make such a big deal out of transporting gear when its really not that bad at all.
