I don't have anywhere near the experience that most of you guys have so I figure why not just ask you all. What brand new amp and cabinet would you buy with $1500USD, knowing what you know, that could hang with a loud metal band with one guitarist and one drummer, at rehearsals and medium sized indoor/outdoor shows? I know buying used would be the best option for most people and that I may be limiting myself by buying new but that's just where I'm looking right now. Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer a noobish question, I appreciate it a lot. EDIT: I should leave the caveat that spending all the money is not something I necessarily want to do. If I can get by with less, I will happily do so. Ideally I would keep it $1000 or less but I will spend a little more if it will make a real difference.
