I've been hearing a lot about these amps and I need a new amp. Just hoping the price doesn't go up any time soon.

What do you guys think? I play metal and rock with a little bit of anything else you can think of.

Just FYI I don't plan on ordering it online, just wanted to reference them for you guys to take a look at.

Well...I'm not currently in a band but I occasionally jam with others, so I don't think the volume would be so much a problem. My mg15 is loud enough while we're jamming.

What if I bought the head and then later swapped the cabinet? Would it be loud enough to cut through drums if I did join a band?

I was leaning more towards the blackstar, but I just wanted to see how the B-52 held up with UGers

It would blow the MG out of the water so its plenty loud enough.. I have mine hooked up to a Krank 4x12 cab and it gives it hell lol. So you should be fine, go with the blackstar. As for drums, as long as you drummer isnt killing the drums or you need headroom you are fine.

You're suggesting I get the head with the mini-stack then? (the mini stack at least to start off)

Correct it would be the best option for you and a ton more versatile.
