    Emergency amp advice

    Amp crapped out and I need a new amp pronto. For the weekend.
    Not many options localy.. these 3 amps are all priced the same ($400ish)

    Fender mustang V with matching cab

    Peavy 6505+ 112 combo

    Peavy valveking 212 combo

    Older Peavy supreme 160 stack

    I play mostly metal... Gigs here and there, and lots of band practice. Need something that v can keep up with my drummer.
    thanks in advance!

    6505+ combo, and later add a cab (unless you already have one, then use it with that), and then replace the combo with another head when you can.

    6505 or Supreme.

    Takes a shitload of tweaking to make a Valveking do decent metal, so I'd go with the 6505. I dunno about the Supreme.

    I'd go with the supreme, if you play old school metal, the 6505 if newer shit.
    Do you know what time it is? It's time to FARK SHEET ARRRRRP!!
