I have been looking at this head as of recent and it seems to be a reasonably priced marshall tube. My question for those of you who have owned/played or had other experience with one is will it do metal? By Metal I mean will it hold up for Metallica and Megadeth tones, or even the harsh thrash sounds of pantera? thanks in advance for any input you have.

I don't think it'll do Pantera well unless you have emgs in your guitar and use an overdrive pedal. It does Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer well though.

I have one, have had it for a while, and have never been truly satisfied with it. For Oasis it's perfect. For Metallica, it can handle it, but you need some type of high output pick-up. For anything else, it's just ok. It's ok at everything, not exceptionally good at one thing. It's not the best decision you could make when it comes to Marshal...

I do have EMG's and have thought about buying an overdrive pedel, but will that keep the same tube sound on the distortion, by that I mean will it have the same great tone that you hear out of Tube amps.

I love Marshall's but im not completely conviced that I should get one, I am just looking for a good amp (half Stack preferably) that suits my needs. Mesa Boogies are a bit out of my reach and I have decided that I want to go tube. Im hoping to keep the whole thing (head+Cab) under $1000. If any of you have any suggestions I would appreciate it.
