Whoo! First thread on Ultimate Guitar. Okay, so, I've got a question. I typically play metal, and I've got an ESP EC-50 with a Blackouts Metal in the bridge, minus the jumper on the back of it. I'm looking to upgrade my amp, and my price range is about $700-$900. I've heard good things about the ValveKings, but i've heard bad things, too. Would the VK100 Head/Cab combo be a good choice?

that would be good one to look at, you could look at the peavey 6505+ but it's got mixed review from players

I personally know very little, but the guys in GG&A specialize in this stuff. There's even a "Gear for Metal" thread in there that will list good metal amps with prices. Check it out

Honestly, I'd kill to have a 6505+. Or a 5150. But I don't have that kind of money.

Dux, thanks for the tip! I'll check it out.
