So like i said before, not that big of Gear Head, so i am here toi request your pro help.

Anyways i am looking something for live action (Mainly for Bars and stuff).i really don't want to spend more than 800-1000 Euros.
Any suggestions?


PS: Not looking for something to handle death metal, but something mainly for... like Rock and Alternative Metal Stuff.

If you don't want to use the bar gear, how about a Laney Lionheart combo with an overdrive or boost pedal of your choice? smile.gif If you just want an amp for rock and metal, the Ironheart is really good as well I've heard. I would also check out some Blackstars, they are great in your pricerange smile.gif

I would recommend Marshall AVT50 as a very useful gigs amp and should be pretty cheap as well. We had a local gigs/tour organizer using these little amps all over the country (100s of bands abused it!) and my band played on it so many times. Man - this amp proved to be so handy and reliable. You can set a very decent tone on it, especially if you have OCD or DS-1 pedals to put in front. Its loud enough for small clubs and in the larger ones you are anyway going to mic the amp and have it go on PA system. When choosing an amp for such club/bar gigs - I would recommend something practical.

I'd check out some Blackstar amps in your pricerange.
Great amps for the price, and really versatile as well smile.gif

I subscribe! I owned one of those AVT50s for about 10 years biggrin.gif I also recommend taking a look over the Blackstar amps and also, check out ebay - maybe you can find a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier combo which would be more than great.

Try picking up a second hand 6505 or similar, should be possible in that price range!

There would also be the 5150 from Peavy (eBay hunt necessary here), but would 800-1000 euros suffice for both head and cabinet? The same question in the case in which he would go for the 6150 or 6505.
