ok so i have my 5150 combo..but i was checking my local craigslist and someone is selling a B-52 AT100 head with a Peavey 5150 4x12 cab w/ sheffields for $400..

which do you think would suit my hellraiser better?

Those are 2 very different amps. The 5150 has arguably better distortion, but the B-52 has very nice cleans. They are also voiced very differently.

Really I don't think the amps are in the same league, the 5150 is basically a stanard these days when it comes to hardcore sene, and the b52 is a budget high gain amp. I would stick with the 5150 combo. Change the speakers to V30, or G12 to really improve your amps tone, the 5150 shefields are desined to sound like a worn out green back and don't sound the greatest. So really with that cab your not gaining anything ethier.

Also the volume difference between a 60 212 combo, and a 100 watt half stack is not that much, at the SPL that it will make a difference you will most likly be micing your amp regardless of the amp, combo or half stack. Any more I mic my amp nearly all the time, it gives our sound guy the control to change the dynamics when he needs to, I keep it just loud enough to get over the drums, and let the PA take over from there, this also saves our ears.
