Hey everyone
I play in a band where our main genres are hardcore/deathcore. Can anyone suggest a good amp (stack) that would suite my genre of music under $1000? I appreciate any responses.
Thanks guys

Go find a guitar shop with a good selection, take your guitar and play through some.
I would never buy an amp without playing through it first.

5150's are over-hyped and also over priced because of this fact. If you want an alternative to the 5150 with almost the same tonal abilities and with a smaller price tag I highly recommend the Peavey Ultra Plus 120. Huge amounts of gain, decent reverb tank, three different channels, does metal and hardcore effortlessly and you will never need a louder head. Ever.

Go used. You can score some great gear for nearly half the price. And as stated, always try out a head before you buy it

A couple of heads to check out: Peavey 5150/6505, Mesa Dual/Triple Rectifier

i've seen them go for around $500
but i agree the ultra. it is after all what the 5150 was based on if i remember correctly.

I'm not sure what 5150's go for over there but you don't see them here for anything under £700 and the Ultra Plus goes go around £400.

This. A used Mesa/Boogie is the way to go.

Go for Bugera then. My 333xl has fucking AMAZING tone, and I bought the head and cab used for $500

EDIT: And don't go for Peavey, they sound too 'tinny' to me

Peavey 6505/5150s are saturated as hell and they sound thick.
I dont know where you heard this tinny sound from.

I wouldn't say "tinny," but "shitty" is definitely a good way to describe them.

5150, Tube Screamer, and Mesa Stilleto or Oversized cab. Instant Deathcore tone.

this, basically. a 5150 or similar amp (ex: 6505, bugera 6260/6262) being boosted through a good cab with V30s or so basically always works for deathcore etc.

So that's why all deathcore sounds the same.

you see, there's this thing called the used market, and when you look there, things are cheaper than when brand new.

I got my mesa cab for 350$ used, and a 5150 used is around 400-500$. A tube screamer is 40$.

where the f*ck are you buying all this stuff from?

prices like that will never exist in australia..

for us, the used price for them are:
mesa cabs: $1400
5150: at least $1500
tubescreamer: if we're talking the 808, its around $200

Oh man, OZ is the worst for prices, sorry man


I'm lucky enough to live in America, where this stuff is dirt cheap used. No, I use the T7 with the T9 mod, two resistors away.

I hate this so much, I pay out the arse for my gear. Everything costs way too much, and it gets me so bummed that I've dropped like 2 weeks worth of (part time) wages on a single pedal or something.

Just to be different; Framus Cobra, high gain and relatively unique. Probably out of your price range but at least its something different to the 5150/6505 posts.
