Hello,

Im looking for a new amp/setup in the $1200 range, I play mostly metal (disturbed, arch enemy, trivium, metallica) with some rock here and there.
I will be using it mainly for bedroom practice, so I want a amp that sounds neat at bedroom volume, but that can hold up if I start gigging someday, I'm also willing to sacrifice flexibility for tone.
Also I dont want to buy used gear.

Current gear:
Flextone III (sounded good before it broke down, and felt like I paid for a looot for stuff I didnt use )
Godin Freeway EMG (dual 81's)
Gibson flying V.
No cab

Thanks

Peavey 6505 112 combo with a Tubescreamer/clone.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

+1 to the 6505 1x12 combo, hard to go wrong there.

Also could go for the Peavy 6505 mini head and get a cab of your choosing.

Agree, used Mark V 25 plus a cabinet would be perfect as well.
