Vaders use Legends as well, I'd probably go Vader.
Huge headroom and lots of low end, but they're still really tight.

Mesa's use Vintage 30's, do they not?

I'd get the Vader bro. Legends + 6505 =

Vader without question. Mesa is so overhyped. The Mesa cab has Vintage 30's which are not good for Monster Metal tones at high Volume.

Check out any cab with Celestion G12 100 speakers also. I have those in my 400 watt randall cabs and they are similar to vader.

the reason the mesa's are in there, is because i can get them locally so no shipping cost.

Trust this man. He has the rig you're thinking about getting.

Isn't Legends the cheap Eminences?


I believe they're about $70.

They're still a good speaker, probably one of the better lead guitar speakers. Very warm, smooth and handles loads of bass with ease.

I'd go with a Port City 2x12...

Second choice would be Mills Acoustics

then... Mesa if you need more sear and mids and rawness, vader if you want to make your tone more flowing and have a better built cab.

The ledgends in the Vader cabs are custom built 120 watters.

Seriously, go Vader. Being on tour and getting to hear what tons of different cabs sound like has really made me appreciate my Vader.

Heard nothing but good things about the Vaders.

Also, the Orange cabs are well worth considering. Very tight, thick and punchy.
#13
For what is worth, I vote for Port City.
They apparently have some kind of trademarked cabinet design.

Maybe Avatar?
You can choose everything, color, grill material etc, V30, Greenbks.....
