I'm not necessarily going to get one now, but i want to know which models of the Head amps and the Cabinets are made for hard rock and metal, like Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Shinedown, maybe even Guns N Roses... because once i start playing gigs a lot (not big ones, just in bars and clubs and stuff), I'm going to need some stacks, and all i got now is this Line 6 Spider III 75 watt amp

anyway, thanks for the suggestions guys.
My Gear:

The vintage modern, mode 4s may be good for you

Does it have to be a Marshall? And budget?

EDIT: and try and score a JCM800. That or like the guy above said, a Vintage Modern. Although I've heard they can be fizzy....

Yeah wel Slash always used old JCM Marshalls for GnR, but I've always heard that the Mode 4's are the most versatile and very good when it comes to metal.

my dream is to own a marshall lol. I've always wanted to own one, ever since i discovered that amps actually DO matter (so i was like 10). And the budget doesn't matter, cuz like i said before, I don't need one at the moment, but once i actually start playing in clubs and bars,(which will be in a year or 2, once i get my license) i will need a stack... at the moment im just playing battle of the bands at my school, so its really not a necessity, at the moment.

Honestly, if you're used to the hard rock and metal tones from the Spider, I would stay away from the Vintage Modern, and definitely nothing solid-state or "hybrid" or "valvestate" / "AVT" from Marshall.

Honestly, anything in the JCM or JVM line will do the trick - I have a JCM TSL 100 and a JVM 410H, and both have incredible hard rock, higher-gain tones. Bottom-line, though, is every amp is different, so if you're going to buy online or second-hand, listen to all the soundclips you can find and figure out what your favorite artists use.

You probably don't need a full stack a nice 100w tube 2x12 would probably do the trick



Wow. Good job at talking out your ass.


Next time actually know what you're talking about before you post.


Anyway, a JCM 800 would suit you well. They usually go for around 600-1000 on ebay depending on the condition. Pair it with a decent cab and it ought to do what you need it to.

JCM800, Jubilee, JVM, Mode 4, Vintage Modern... JCM2000, JCM900... all of those amps will give you metal tone, although you might have to boost some of them with a pedal.

As for cabs, you can pretty much never go wrong with a 1960A Marshall cab. You might also want to look at other cabs such as Vader or Avatar cabinets, but make sure the Ohms rating matches and make sure the amp head doesn't have a higher wattage than the cab.

Anything but the valvestate and the mg's

So we had a music battle, copying what each other did and upping the ante and whatnot. After awhile of going nowhere, I said to the pianist "let's see you do this, asshole" played a single note... and bent it up a step. And left.
