it has the exact same channel's/effects as my XT65R

so would it have just more volume/better sound and stuff????
it would probably be awhile before i could get it...i would have to sell some stuff/find one at a good price on ebay.

i'm just wondering if it sound's good...

No.

And it'll sound the same as your Crate.

Think again, and look for a decent sounding amp, preferrably a valve amp.

For what? You've REALLY gotta be more specific.

hm...i've been playing for about.....2and a half year's.and about....1 and a half ACTUALLY strapping down and learning....and...i play stuff like....avenged sevenfold....a little bit of pantera....going to start learning some children of bodom stuff....
and i want a head that will have good distortion.without having to use pedals...i have pedals now and i would rather just...eh..have an amp instead of having to use pedals.
i like the way they sound.i just wish i would be able to sell them and use the money for something else.....

In the music world a general fact is basically 'the more you spend the better it gets'. You get what you pay for basically.

On that note I think if you really want a halfstack then a Peavey XXX or a Peavey 6505 or something along those lines would be good.

how much does the crate halfstack go for? (i don't like that crate, but I'm just trying to find out your total budget)

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

depending on your budget... a used tube combo could be good. you could look into a used XXX or used traynor blue with an OD pedal to boost it into heavier territory.

well the crate halfstack that isaw was like..499..but it's like the exact same thing as my xt65r so i figured it would be the same..so i'm looking for something different...
i don't really have a budget as of now.i'm really just trying to get idea's to save up for..you know?

but i would probably say....hm..maybe....400? or so...for a head.

well, basically, everyone's going to tell you that at your budget you're better off with a good tube combo, than a mediocre (or worse) halfstack, and to be honest, I think they're correct.

for the pedals, I'd keep them till you get the amp, but if you need to sell them to finance the amp, I'd probably keep the digitech bad monkey EDIT: assuming you get an all-tube amp.

Nice.


Go for a used Peavey 5150 combo on ebay. Youll love it.

And it will be just as loud as the crate halfstack.

Cheaper would usually mean the MG series, if so,
NO!
Yes the peavey is much better.
#19
ok cheap and marshall dont go together dude, so you must be looking at the MG series or the AVT series, if you like metal alot seriously get a peavey 6505/5150 those have a lot of gain, and with your bad monkey, it will boost the gain to even more
#20
Alright.well i guess i have one picked out.
the peavey 5150
everyone seem's to be saying that.
so
Thanks everyone!

Good choice! Right now thier going for dirt cheap on ebay. you could get one less the 700 fairly easy.

I would suggest you keep the bad monkey and sell the grunge and death metal. You won't have a purpose for them after you get your 5150.
