If you have that sort of money to invest, I'd get a tube combo: Easier to carry around, and better sound... But hey, that's just me.

The cab seems like a good deal, but I've gotta give the ixnay on the head. I think you should just keep your panties in a wad for a couple of months and get a good tube stack. You could get a Marshall DSL50 with a 2x12 cab for under a grand through Ebay. But if you're not up to waiting, just don't get a head with built-in FX. You'll regret it.

what is wrong with built in effects?

They typically suck. I can attest to this. I have a Behringer with built-in FX. Have you tried looking at Ebay?

I wouldnt buy a SS halfstack. they serve no purpose other then just looks. Theyre really pointless IMO. Check out eBay or something to get ahold of a good, imexpensive tube head or combo.

[edit] and yeah, built in fx do suck really bad a lot of the time. mainly because you have little or no control over them. also because they crap up your sound.
#12
I don't know about half stacks, but you could probably get a used Peavey 5150 2x12 for under a thousand. Perhaps something from ENGL or Mesa. That is, assuming that you like your metal.

EDIT: And built-in FX typically suck because they aren't very adjustable, so you're very limited on the sounds you can get from them. Cramming all the effects in also severely limits the quality of them as well. Multi-fx are pretty much the same way. They could only be recommended for practicing beginners.

check out the peavey 5150 now called the 6505 it's a great amp, the combo is about 1500 Canadian taxes in. great metal amp with stock tubes in it. upgraded tubes would be even better. no low end Marshalls are not good, IMO don't get a marshall, they are overated and very expensive. get a tube combo, tube will always sound better than SS at the same budget. Mesa is the same way very expensive, shop around, take a look at the local guitar shop. also check out traynor amps. high quality amps with great components especially the YCV50BLUE. never get an amp with built in effects however.

I forgot about the Traynor Blue! Thanks for recommending that one.

I've heard that with an overdrive boost, the Peavey Classic series could do a Metallica or Megadeth tone, but nothing heavier than that. If you don't plan on going beyond Metallica, you might consider a Peavey Classic with an SD-1.

i want something good for punk and metal.


but if i get an amp thats distortion only suits metal ill run a Digitech Hot Rod on a clean channel for punk.

Are you gigging with 1,000+ people at a time?

If not, there's no need for a halfstack.

Marshall DSL50 w/ either an Avatar, Carvin or if you can dish out the cash, Marshall cab. You can probably get a DSL50/1960 lead cab stack for about $1000 on Ebay. If you wanna go cheaper, check out a JCM900 4100 Dual Reverb halfstack.

my JMC900 combo is loud enough to play for the scene here in KY, i dont need to turn it too loud at all, and i can get all the punk sound i need out of it with no pedal needed
