any certain gear i should look at getting?
i'm thinking a noise gate will be neccesary.
anything else?
i play death metal and will be using a lot of gain.

haha looks like im set then!
i guess i wasnt too specific about what gear.
i have a schecter omen 6 guitar but im planning on getting an ESP LTD EX-400

Yes, you will need a noise gate if you plan on playing it any louder than 2.

ISP Decimator, go buy it!

Alright, thank you.
i wasnt sure which noise gate to get, but it seems the decimator seems like the best choice.
i would plug that in the FX loop for it to work most effectively right?
stupid question, but all ive been using the past year is a line6 spider II 30 watt and a boss metal zone.
thank god ill never have to use them anymore
on a completely unrelated note, anyone know of some good 5-15 watt practice amps i could put in my room and jam with friends on?
it wouldnt be used a whole lot, so the price should probly be around $100 USD

The decimator kicks ass!
You might want to look into an OD of some sort to just to tighten up the sound a little.
For practice amps the roland microcube just destroys everything!
But You could probably just use your spider for practice.
Gear:
Orange tiny terror
ENGL 2x12 cab
PRS Singlecut
MXR GT OD

yeah i might use my spider.
but i might even be able to sell it with my mt-2 to a friend for around 150
then get a little smaller amp.
anyone know if the solid state orange amps are good?
or maybe a peavey valveking royal 8, palomino V8, or a fender pro junior combo?
yet another question, would a robert keeley modded boss sd-1 od pedal be a good investment?
#8
VK, Palomino or Pro Junior would all be a good choice. Maybe get a Valve Junior combo with a Metal Muff or something? It wouldn't be loud enough to get over drums though, you'll probably need about 15w or so.

yeah, id just be using it in my bedroom or playing with my friend.
but i guess the pro junior is 15 watts, i probably won't play too much metal on this amp either.
more just rock, punk and blues.

Don't get the Pro Junior. It has a bad reputation. Click the link on my sig. Basically, the enclosure is far too small for the power it is putting out, and EVERYTHING rattles inside it when played at any volume over 3. Check out Blackheart amps for the same price.

Most Harmony Central revies of the Pro Junior slated it for this chronic problem that many seem to have and there are far better tube amps out there for the money - thank christ the eBay seller is willing to refund me!

Also, if you are in the US, Crate have just released a V series 18 watt all tuber that looks cool.
