I'm looking for a new amp for band practice, home practice, and the occasional gig. I play high gain metal and so far, my favorite amp has been the Peavey 6505+ head. However, the head is MUCH too loud for my purposes, so I was wondering this: I've played the combo and wasn't impressed by any means, but by swapping the tubes and the speaker (to a V-30) would the tone of the combo be comparable to the head? Also, would the 112 combo be loud enough to be heard over a pretty hard hitting drummer in band practice?

the 112 combo is plenty loud enough for anything u may want. by swapping out the speaker and tubes (depending on what your going for, or which tubes) then yes you can greatly better the sound of the combo amp. getting it close to the tone of the head? not happening. are u limited to just the 6505+ combo?

No, I just happen to have an option of getting an already modded combo. I'm open to other things as well. I've been researching for months, but I can't decide. I'm looking for either a combo, or a lower wattage head (<50). Budget is somewhere around $1000 (should also include cab for halfstack)

damn if u said u already had a cab i woulda been like MINI RECTO!

but u are aware of lack of versatility of the 6505?

Yeah. I've actually been considering a used Peavey JSX combo. Just not sure if it's br00tz enough.
