    ok and thanks for the reply much needed and mesa was what i was going for just needed more input before i slapped a hunk of green down and what head would u prefer
     
  4. Definitely Mesa. There are usually alot of Mesa Road Ready cabinets available (used) for great prices... and for your head, well, that can be a million things!

    Out of those cabs I'd go Mesa. Add Ampeg in there and it's a different story ;) The Goliath cabs aren't bad either. They're too bright for my tastes but some metal dudes like that. And really you could play metal on Markbass cabs as well. But if we're picking the most ideal out of your picks, Mesa.
