    The head definitive! Check this!

    Hi, I need buy a head for play with my band. I like do this type of things:

    [VIDEO]]Best Rock (Pop Punk,Metal,Screamo,Alternative,Emo) Bands Ever (2012,2013 Update Part1) HD - YouTube[/VIDEO]

    My options to buy are:

    -PRS 2 Channel H.
    -Marshall JVM205H.
    -Peavey 6505+.
    -Peavey 6505.
    -Peavey 3120.
    -EVH 5150 III 50 watts (not 100 watts)
    -Blackstar HT 100 Metal (New version).
    -Laney Ironheart 120.

    I not need a head to record in studio (I have a gear for this), I need this head for play in big concerts (2000 persons or more), namely, to play in live.

    My current gear is:

    -Guitar: Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 made in USA.
    -Cabinet: Mesa Boogie Traditional 4x12".
    -Some pedals.

    Only can buy one of this heads in the list (not can buy other models, only that). What you recommend me?

    Most of what I've seen for Alternative type music (Paramore, Coheed, etc...) has been a Dual Rectifier or a Marshal JCM2000; of the two, I'd say go for the Mesa but they are different flavors so play both and see which you like more.

    Do you have any chance to try out before you buy? Because my first choice out of your list would be the Peavey 6505, because of its awesome distorted tone. But the "clean" is sub-par at best, and you really would have to check if it is useable for you.

    If not, I'd go for the EVH 5150 - also very good distorted tone (different to the original 5150/6505, but still awesome - the high end rules ont his), but also a very good clean sound.

    In order from first choice to last;

    -Laney Ironheart
    -EVH 5150 III
    -Peavey 6505+

    The Ironheart is in my opinion, the best amp in the list. I put the 5150 III above the 6505+ purely from a size and weight point of view, as they sound fairly similar in my opinion.
