Planning on starting playing local shows soon, so I'm looking into investing into some proper gear. My guitar has an active EMG on the bridge (if that matters) and we play Drop B deathcore. Budget is somewhat of an issue so I'd appreciate advice on decent amps and cabs I can look into buying (or renting). I am the only guitarist in the band, and do have a Line 6 metal effects pedal (again, if it makes a difference). My main concern is sound intensity, as we are current only a three-piece group. Thanks

What exactly is your budget?

Around 1000-2000$, but if there aren't any decent options available, I'd rent

Well this should do ya just fine good sir

EDIT: Theres some other stuff worth checking out there. But for 1200, thats not bad. Snag an ISP Decimator, an OD pedal and some new tubes and you would be set

There is definitely more stuff worth checking out. That is really not a tremendous deal. You'd get it for much cheaper private party.
Goodness. You have a great budget. Where do you live (for used market purposes)?

Don't judge me.

Eh. For his purposes a used 6505 or 5150 is better than a Dual Rec or MkIV, probably. I'd love to see a Splawn Nitro or Superstock, though. Or Framus....maybe a bit expensive.
