Combo, because generally you can get something better. Remember that the head version of an amp might be cheaper than a combo, but then you have to buy a cab as well which makes it more expensive.

Combo.

And I seem to be reccomending it alot these days, but the Peavey Valveking 1x12 would be ideal.

Well if you play large venue gigs a Stack would be better... you won't get much stack for £400 though.

Anything else a combo is just better: cheaper, easily portable etc. etc.

I recommend a nice combo would be nicer.

i got a JCM800 combo off ebay for £325 - you should check them out, they are just awesome

Do you play any decent sized gigs?

If yes, stack or possibly combo.

If not, combo.

Personally, I'd get a combo and mic it up for gigs. Which is what i do.

Why? A large tube combo of at least 30 watts would be PLENTY loud. Besides, you're usually miked up at venues, anyway.


Exactly!
Unless you're really wanting a half-stack, then get a combo. They're relatively cheaper and WAY easier to lug around when you wanna play somewhere. Half-stacks also take more cables and are quicker to set up

how heavy metal?

(not to go against the consensus here, as generally combos are better value, but sound control have a great deal on the peavey windsor head (£200) and grainger hammerhead (basically an epiphone so-cal head, £250), which could end up better value than a combo, perhaps).

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.
