I hate to bother you all with another boring "what amp?" thread but I really could use the advice of the nice people here on UG... I'm thinking of getting a Peavey 6505+ head or a Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier. So what amp should I get? I play mainly metal and hardcore. And if you advice me to get the Peavey what cab should I get because I heard the Peavey cabs aren't that good.

Thanks in advance...

I vote the Peavey- much tighter in the low end than a recto
for a cab it depends how much money you have for it...
edit: and where you are (USA, UK, or wherever)

I live in Belgium(Europe). And I'm willing to spend a lot of money, I'd rather wait a bit longer to save up more to get decent gear than to buy crappy gear.

+1 to both posts- if you have the money check out ENGL and the Mesa Boogie Mark IV- absolutely great amps

Deffinately check out ENGL if you can, the Mark IV is good, but its majorly overpriced there.

Out of those two, I'd choose the 6505, because I don't like the triple recto, the dual recto is much better sounding to my ears, but even then, it's still an "eh" amp unless it's a 2 channel.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Play them both and see which you like better.... unless that isn't possible... and in that case, if you don't need cleans, get a 6505, awesome metal amp.
