I'm in a metalcore/melodic hardcore band currently as the bassist, but I'll be promoted to guitar in a few months (guitar is really my primary instrument). I need a solid setup but I can't see myself spending more than about $800-$900 on a cab and head. I was thinking of getting the Orange Crush Pro CR120 head and either a Kustom 4x12 or a Marshall MG 4x12 cab. Im set on getting this head but honestly I'm not sure about what cabinet I should get that would benefit our heavy sound and that would fit within my price range. Input?

Noooooo no no no with that budget stay faaaaaaaaaaaar away from those amps & cabs. Looking used will get you much better deals on better gear. Where are you located? Are you willing to go used?

EDIT: I do mean the ones you mentioned in the OP, not what Cathbard said; those are great choices.

I live in southern NJ. I've always been kind of iffy on buying used gear honestly.
