Hey I've recently deceided its time for a new amp, I'm looking for a halfstack, I'm a Fairly good player and am a straight up metal head. I have a solid state madison prophecy head and a randall cab, that i love, but now I want a full tube head. I play Metal and only metal. I don't like much mid range and i do like sizzle at the top end. I'm in a Area where there are no music shops for MILES so i don't have the option of going and trying any out. My price range is $1000-1500. I am looking at a dual rect, and a 6505 but i don't really know what i am getting into. Any ideas??? Thanks!!!

Different numbers of speakers offer different tonal properties. A 4x12 sounds much different than a 2x12. If the TS likes the tone of a 4x12 then that's his decision to make.

Metal is a very broad genre, filled with many different tones. Until you specify a certain tone that you're after we really can't help you out much.

Also, what kind of metal do you play and how important are cleans to you?

Have you checked your craigslist as well for things that might appeal to you?

I'd recommend:
Mesa Dual / Triple Rectifier
Mesa Mk IV / V
Krank Rev+ / Rev Jr Pro 50
Krank Krankenstein / Krankenstein Jr
Peavey 3120 / XXX
Peavey 5150 / 6505

If you get the Mesa Marks, you might want to look into upgrading the guitar pups as well.
