hey, i plan on getting a peavey 6505 head and i was wondering whether a 6505 cab or a marshall 1960 a/b cab would be better.
i plan on playing almost all forms of heavy rock, modern hardcore (metalcore, deathcore, ect) and death metal, so a tight low end and chug is important.

i would just match it with a 6505 cab but i've seen many people match it with the marshall cab.

thoughts?

neither. the marshalls suck and the 6505 is just decent. get a genz benz g-flex, they are absolutley amazing. the 2x12 puts about the same low end and loudness as a few 4x12s ive heard.

The marshalls were great a while back, now they are cheaply built and just sound poopy.

Heres a link to reviews on the g-flex...people love them.

Depends on budget, the 1960a beats the pants off the 6505 hands down, it all depends on what you can afford.

budget is irrelevant, as im working towards the money.
any other input would be great. such as why marshalls suck all of a sudden

i find that all the heads i use i like to use with v30 cabs (marshal 1960v) but with the 6505 i like the normal 1960 (with g12t75's and not ivntage 30's) i think it suits the amp better IMO
