Okay.
So for the last few months I've been looking at some new rig options...
And it's come down to this...

1: Going Tube.

-Amp: Blackheart 5W Little Giant Combo.
-Effects: EHX Metal Muff With Top Boost. ISP Decimator.

2: Going Digital (This is where I have problems).

-Preamp: I don't know if I should keep my Behringer V-Amp 2 or go with something like Line 6 Pod, most people say that they are almost the same thing. But, I don't know, I want some other opinions...
-Power Amp: I really don't know a thing about power amps help me out here.
-Cabinet: Maybe an Avatar 2 x 12? What cabs can handle cabinet modeling well?


So my main questions are...

Should I go tube or digital? I really want something reliable and I hear that getting a preamp and a power amp and a cab is really reliable.

If I were to go digital, should I sell my V-Amp 2 and go with a Pod?

What power amp should I get? I just want it to be loud enough to jam with a drummer and maybe a bassist from time to time.

What cabinets go good with digital cabinet modeling?


My budget is about...
$700 - $800.
Don't tell me to get any other tube combos.
I've decided that one of these is what I want.
I just want my questions answered.
I mainly play Death and Decapitated, Death Metal type stuff.

I'm sorry, but those are horrible choices especially for your budget.

Well, for Death Metal, your Digital setup should be good, but with a good multi-fx processor and a Crate Powerblock (eBay for sure). The Powerblock is 100w, and is a head with an EQ, but is probably the best head for modelling. But honestly, with $7-800, you could get a good Randall or Bogner combo or Stack, w/e you prefer, which will sound better than the digital setup you have.

Get the Boss GT-10, if you want to go digital. In my opinion, Boss sounds way better and more real than Line 6-stuff.

the blackheart won't get you over a drummer, but if you get a krank rev jr then you don't have to get the pedals for your tube setup and you have 100 bucks left over

+1, none of those choices are very good honestly.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Okay then.
I give in.
Any other suggestions?

The Krank Rev. Jr actually seemed like a good idea.
