I'm making this thread for a friend, his budget is $300-500 and he wants heavy enough distortion to play Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb Of God, Pantera, Metallica, Trivium........**** like that. Suggestions?

I'm talking to him on msn and he says he won't buy used, sorry, any other suggestions?
#5
he won't go used?

then no, there's nothing really that good for metal in that price range. unless it's a smaller solid state combo like a roland cube or vox valvetronix.

Hi,
I have been pickin' up some Arabic radio signal things. Every time I turn up my Amp, this crazy Imam starts messing up my chords.

lol To be honest hes a flaming idiot, i tried to get him to look at some used, not working, he says that combos aren't "metal" lol ha......idiot.
#8
If he doesn't buy used, all that he'll get is some crappy solid state stuff

Well, the Roland Cubes are pretty good, as are Vox Valvetronix's. But he can get infinitely better stuff used.
#9
you're friend is a retard. how are combo's not metal? it's the same amp, just with the speakers built in.

and a half stack for that much is going to be absolute ****. there's no other way to put it than it's going to be a total waste of cash.

Buy a head for that price then save up for a cab. Better than blowing $500 on something he will want to replace in about 6-8 months
#11
^ you can't play with just the head, it'd be a waste just sitting there.

Well he has a cab, and yes hes a retard, considering he doesn't play in a band and wants a halfstack. I told him combos are the same amp just with speakers, and he says "no its not dude, they sound completely different"..........................i need new friends lol

I got a Line 6 spiderII 212 for about £300. Its ok if your want full on metal power chords but pretty crappy for soloing or anything with much technique. I would rather go for a Marshall Stack and just customize with my own pedals cos the preamp models arent great and it can take you a while to get a the right tone. I play quite alot of metal which the amp is great for ( songs like master of puppets and pull on the strings of your martyr) but i get pretty pissed off when its soloing time. I had a budget and now i wished i just saved up for something mcuh better. Check it out any way. Good luck.

they sound completely different?

Sounds like a great guy

Tell him that if he thinks that stacks and combos are completely different then he's an idiot. And that he really can't get much for 300-500 without buying used. That is all

tell him to buy an MG full stack... it sounds like he wont know the difference anyway, and itll be funny

Tell him to get an MG head. A few months later when he's complaining about the crappy tone. Tell him "I SAID SO"

i agree with derek's suggestion of a used 5150 or xxx. If he absolutely, positively, adamantly won't go used, I think he could do a lot worse than a peavey windsor with an EQ pedal in the loop. Which is what i'd probably go for.

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.

^ to be honest, if he's that stupid, best to cut your losses and tell him to get a peavey windsor (with a different cab, and EQ pedal). it's not the best amp for modern metal, but it's a lot better than he'd probably end up with if left to his own devices.

or you could just let him get what he wants and have a laugh later.
