Well.. I will have about $1500-$2000 this summer, and I am going to try and invest it into some guitar gear. Now what I need to know is, I need a good Metal Amp head, and a cab probably to go with it (need advice, I don't want to stick a shitty cab with a good head). I want to spend about $1000 (maybe a little less, maybe a little more) on it. I want like some good Children of Bodom, Ensiferum, Norther (finnish metal mostly) sounds etc. And if you could suggest some good pedals to help too, that would be great as well.

hmm, check out some Peavey stuff...5150/6505/XXX or maybe ENGL, i don't know much about ENGL so i can't give you a model but i've been hearing very good stuff about them
