Well i feel that now I play good enough to deserve a new amp, I am thinking of a half stack of some sort, I play alot of nu-metal and thrash/death metal, and some metalcore

Is Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier head and cab a good combo? or am i looking for something else? Tube or solid state doesnt matter, but i may wanna gig with it

You have that much dough to shell out for a Mesa?

Go get a tube combo.. it's pretty much a consensus that you don't need a half stack. What was your previous amp?

I've heard the dual rectifier is better. You don't need the wattage on the triple.

a ten watt marshal MG..... i know.. i REALLY need to upgrade.. and money wont be an issue because i work and i dont mind saving up for a few months or more to get it, i just want a general idea of what to get, i heard mesa boogie triple rectifier is a good amp and comes with good distortion on it (i dont really wanna get a distortion pedal)

You could go the poor mans mesa route and check out the B-52 AT amps

I haven't personally tried one but everyone I've heard who has said they sound similar to a mesa.

hmm ive heard of b-52s before, aparently theyre nice amps for a nicer price, i know i can get a b-52 tube half stack for 1000 bucks, that any good?

dont get a halfstack, even if your gigging. its to much of a hassle to setup and you wont be able to use it at home. youd be happier with a 50-100watt 212 combo. look at some of the 5150/6505 combos. i personally dont like the mesa tone that much, just make sure that you listen to alot of different amps to get the tone you ant down

thats a good idea but all i can try out are marshalls and line sixes because thats the only amps my guitar shop carries, and well i want what you people think, tell me what tone you think would be good for Nu-metal/thrash/death metal

and i like marshalls and line sixes, but they dont provide tones i want, and line sixes short out my guitar shop says

Don't get the b-52.

If you want to hear a mesa, go to their website and search for local dealers. You will be glad you did. Don't dismiss an amp like that without hearing it first.
