Well i finally decided on a amp, im getting a Carvin V3. But the problem is im not sure if i want the combo, or the head+a Avatar cab (212). I really dont know which to get. Im buying it NEW from carvin, b/c i plan on keeping it for a long time and i just love the "new amp smell". And about how many watt cab would i need for a V3 head? if i get the head.

go here to see

If you plan on keeping it for a long time get the head. Then if you outgrow the cabs you can just switch it onto a new one.

Good idea. Can someone link me to a 212 cab that would be good. And i heard people saying that vaders were "Metal cabs" i like them, but i like to play a lot of other stuff to so thats why im not 100% sure on what cab im going to get.

If youve got 500 to spend, orange 212 with v30's is nicer than the avatar, it just depends on how long you want your cab.

Avatar cab. Load it with Hellatones.

It should be rated for 100W, at least, since the V3 is a 100W head.

either an avatar 212 with v30's (or hellatones, which is just a broken in v30)
Or an orange 212 with v30's is what i suggest.
Unless youre a tone nazi, you wont notice the difference between them, but the orange is slightly better.

I love Vader Cabs. Built like tanks and they have amazing sound quality when on distortion. Not to sure about cleans though. Only used one once when jamming at a friends. I would go with the Avatar if you want versatility.

dude get a V3 and save up some more money for a vadar cab. ive heard those two together, its ****ing heaven.
#15
i watched some vids but none happen to go on clean, so im just asking has anyone played the vader on clean? Does it do a decent job, i dont play cleans A LOT but once in a while i like to for a few.

4 consecutive posts. I'm surprised you haven't been warned/banned.
And 2 Fast 2 Vader owns a 212 Vader cab I think.

The only downside to orange cabs is that they are incredibly heavy for some reason.

I have a v3 head as well and am planning to do the same thing, but ive heard the v3 with v30's and i have to say that imo g12t75's sound better with the v3

I think Hellatones are more than just broken in V30's. They're supposed to be aged, not just broken in. They're warmer than V30's that have already been broken in. I personally don't really like V30's, but Hellatones sound pretty nice.
