5150, its the amp that BFMV uses so you should definitely be able to get their tone with it.

To gwitersnamps I know Bullet use peavey, but I'm pretty Sure Killswitch use Mesa and H&Ks....

one BFMV guitarist uses Mesa Rectifiers (dual i think) and the other uses peavey 6505+ (5150II)... The 5150 is a little different but pretty close to the same thing.

Killswitch has used a lot of different amps on their albums and even live. For the End of Heartache Album they used Framus amps and 5150's (now called 6505). They have also used 5150's live before as well.

So in the end the easiest way to get KsE and BFMV using the amps distortion and no pedals would be the 5150 or the 6262 (which is based off of a 6505+)

KSE uses a 5150 a mesa boogie a hughes and kettner a framus cobra and pretty much any amp you would ever consider deeming at least "good" bfmv uses a 5150. i own a 6505 (which is a 5150) and can personally attest to it being excellent except in the clean area. the mesa is probably all around better but the 6505 is better at crunch and metal. The mesa has more tonal control but imo i just freakin love the 6505 and would buy it anytime I would go with that because i think the recto has too much sag.

the 6262 is my vote, great gain,great clean

You already said you were going for the Mesa in your other post. Why'd you make another one?

Owning a 6505+ (same thing as a 5150 II), the Rectoverb is a much better amp stock imo. The 5150 will really need the bias mod to sound that great

I think the Rectoverb or Bugera, preferably Recto, is your best bet.

I've never played any of these but the quality alone screams Mesa Boogie.

you really have an option to get a rectoverb for $700? lucky, i'd would go with that just for versatility, while i own a 6505+ and can attest to the massive distortion you can get from a 5150/6505, mesas are known for their ability to get a variety of tones, but you may also want to think about the fact that it's just combo, and you might need some backup if you intend to gig

Thats just silly.
Anywhere too big for a combo to handle will be miced anyway. The only reason people still go for halfstacks is the extra mass and closed back in the cab increases the bass response.

TS: 5150 has more gain on tap that a 5150II, but you'll never use more than half of what either one has.
The Rectoverb isnt as much of a gain wh0re... but it's got tone for miles...
Either way to go you'll want an EQ in the effects loop. 5150 needs it to focus the gain and the Rectoverb needs it to tighten the bass up a tad. But that's just my opinion

while that's true in a perfect world, i've played my fair share of basement shows, etc. with less than desirable room acoustics, mic situations, etc. and a 1x12 could easily get lost, given that this would be his first large amp, playing in club settings or places with even a decent PA is uncertain

I used to play drums in a band and the two guitarists played our last show with 75W and 100W spider combos. The show was outside and the PA was only used to amplify vocals, everyone could hear just fine and the acoustics were non-existent (ie: We were playing in an open area with nothing projecting the sound towards the crowd).

50w tube combos are insanely loud, if he ever doesn't have enough presence/volume in the mix, then something's wrong.
