I play death metal and I'm really looking for a good half stack

I've been looking at the Peavey VK and a Creat blue voodoo. And for the cab i'm looking at the Behringer Ultrastack and Peavey Windsor...

Any advice?

It's really metal to have a half stack, eh.
all the world's indeed a stage and we are merely players
#5
get the peavey cab, it's a toss up between the heads...why not just get a windsor 1/2 stack? they sound great in high gain settings
#6
+1 on not needing a halfstack but want them anyways! combos are overrated. I'd say go for a high gain head like engl, peavey, mesa, or randall.
#7
I would shoot myself if I saw someone running a Blue voodoo through a Behringer Ultrastack.

I'm a Crate Fanboy. >.<

With anything in that price range, you will need a pedal. The BV is good, heavy as fukc though. By itself, it cant do very heavy music

Yeah, plus if you bought a Blue Voodoo, the V30s are what Crate used in the Blue Voodoo's cabinets. So it'd match up nicely.

Avatar are still higher than the price he's looking at for cabs if he wants 4x12 though.

Erm, Cannibal Corpse and dope are two heavy bands I can think of off the bat that use/used them.

may I suggest the new line of randall amps? I have heard some decent reviews.

Try a b-52 at100 and the matching cab. You wont need a pedal.


Thou the b-52 has a decent metal tone it has no balls what so ever, My rythm guitarist uses one, Its constantly dimed out and everyone struggles to hear him, They dont cut through the mix whatsoever. My marshall cuts through the mix 100x better and is louder on level 3 then his on 10. The only thing he has on me is a good tight low end chug.

First part, phail. Half stacks are barely ever needed.

Second part, if he's looking at a Behringer cab, I'm pretty sure he can't afford a Engle or Mesa.

I don't know.....I've seen some really rich dudes play on some really crummy gear and I've seen people survive on multivitamins and ramen noodles while playing Diezel's and Bogner's.

TS, both cabs you listed are poor, at best. Stick to an Avatar or Vader 2x12".


+1

A quality 2x12 kicks the crap out of a lame 4x12 every time, IMHO. And you can get an Avatar 4x12 for less than a Peavey that would be better, too.
You Don't Need a halfstack.

So...I've actually decided on a head...I'm going with the 6505 from peavey. It's the newer version of the 5150. I just need a Cab...
#25
nice nice. go used for a marshall 1960a cab if you are set on a 4x12. if you're on a budget and don't wanna go used, look into [good] 2x12's.
