im thinkin about this christmas (i know far away but i would like an idea) of a good tube combo and or halfstack that would be good for metal....maybe a mesa combo off of ebay or a peavey...idk but i play mostly melo death and just high gain metal...any suggestions would be nice
Epi. X-Plorer
Line6 Spider III 120
Boss Phase Shifter
Boss Blues Driver
fbv2 Footswich
mesa rectifier single double triple its your choice. they're great amps. the only reason i didnt get one is because i play more hard rock than i do metal.
my gear: ibanez destroyer( with gibson 500t pickup), epiphone les paul plus,ampeg electric, marshall jcm2000 triple super lead half stack
peavey 5150/6505 is pretty much THE metal amp. Otherwise look into mesa's, ENGL, VHT, Soldano. These companies all have great high gain amps.
Jackson DK2M White
Mesa Dual Rec(2 channel)
Carvin V212
line 6's are also good for metal. i have a line 6 spider and its been awesome for the stuff i play
Instead of going for the relatively loose Recto, check out the Mark Series. Muuuch tighter and aggressive, and a used Mark III head can go for around $600!
