would celestion vintage 30's or celestion G12T 75's work better in a cab with a peavey 6505 head for metal type? drop C, breakdowns, that kind of stuff
#2
your a smart cookie, I'll say G12Ts, they're ment for scooped mids and high gain type stuff.

i would never buy those, i just knew it would get people pissed enough to look. so the 75's would probly be better?

yeah ive got a cab with the G12T's in it, good speakers.
They've alot more low end compared to the V30's in my opinion!
The other guitarist in my band has the 1960AV so ive a pretty good point of view, the 75's sound very good with my cranked peavey running through them.

No. I like V30s are better for metal. I don't like them as much for cleans, but since you're playing metal that isn't as much of a problem, and the tighter bass they have as well as the more pronounced mids make for a great metal tone that'll cut through the mix and have a pretty tight metal sound.

P.S. Scooped mids on metal sound like crap

It really surprised me! I thought i'd have to leave the tubescreamer on alot to get a decent tone, but even at two (which is nearly too loud at band practice) it sounds very nice, lots of low end and gain. I cranked it to 6 last week and it sounded better than a DSL cranked i thought! My VK with the 1960A is even heavier than the other guitarists ENGL Fireball & 1960AV i think!
Well worth the money man! cleans are very nice too, alot better than the 5150 or 6505 i've heard! Master reverb is a pain sometimes though,oh well! Next amp up will prob be a 5150 or a 6505, how'd you find yours for metal?

the 6505 you mean? i haven't bought it yet, need about 100 more for the full half stack. everyone i know in metal bands has it and love them. i looked at the valveking but everyone i talked to said it wouldn't get that good chunk that the 6505 can get.
#10
^my goodness man why do you even want a fullstack 6505! the halfstack i played was shaking the walls, you could feel the bass in your chest!

oh and check out the 6505+ too even for the metalcore i tend to play that beast has more gain then i can justify using

wrong word choice. i meant i am still saving and getting everything at once. everything being a 6505 head and a avatar 4x12 cab that i'm still not sure what speakers to put in.

Really??? But, the Engl Fireball, I would've expected to have gain up the ass (its preamp stage is similar to my Engl E530's preamp), while the VK100 head, which I spent a brief amount of time with yesterday at Guitar Center, didn't compare to the amount of gain I get out my Engl (I've only heard the Vk100 out of a Peavey 4x12, however). I would say the VK100, although nice, had only about two-thirds the gain of my Engl preamp.

You'd be right. VK rapes all other amps at its price range, but you can't expect it to compete with the likes of ENGL and Mesa Boogie.
