Hi, two questions really...

I am looking at getting the Vox ad100vt but wandering whether to get the combo or the head...I'm thinking the head.

But...don't know what cab to get for it. I have a tight budget...I came across this - http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/76904 - epiphone triggerman 4x12 but wandering would this be OK with the vox head?

Thanks!

half stack with 2x12 cab instead. they look cooler, and lifting a combo is harder than lifting the head and 2x12 separately

+1.

I actually recommend you build your own 2x12 cab if you can, as it works out much cheaper. I built one fro a friend who is using this amp with celestion G12-t 75 speakers and it sounds really good.
A metal band?

My other amp can run Crysis

If you're on a budget then you don't buy a halfstack, simple as. You want the most you can get for your money and that invarialbly means a combo.

hey, thanks for the replies...Id say my budget is like between 3 and 400 .... and yeah its for gigging with. I need something with good high gain mainly....i think the combo would be more sensible but I the hslf stack would look so much better!

A half stack will sound fuller. But I wouldn't waste money on a modeling amp halfstack. Tube would be better.

Yo can get a Peavey Valveking head with a bad monkey OD for about $580. That's if you want to save up though.

Remember, the guitar is a musical instrument, not a visual performance art - therefore how things sound is generally more important than how they look.

With such a low budget you don't really have a choice anyway, you can't even afford a shit half stack, never mind a mediocre one

don't get a 100 watt practice amp. Seriously

Voxes don't even have good High gain, Roland Cubes are better in that price range.

I would look at a used Peavey Ultra Combo or a used Peavey Valveking and do a speaker swap.

A combo is the way to go. Alot of bands around here gig with combos and they're plenty loud. For gigging a tube amp is the way to go. A used Peavey Valveking with a speaker swap and an OD pedal. It'll cost more than you have but if you save up for it I think you'll like it. I know people that own them and they sound pretty good.
