I'm looking for a metal amp in the area of around $500-700 CDN. I've been looking into Bugera, and Randall, as well as looking around hoping to find a cheap 5150 combo, with no avail. How are Bugeras? I hear they're good but I also hear they have reliability issues. Any other suggestions for amps to look into would be great as well.

Fender CP Jazzmaster
Schecter PT Custom w/ Dimarzio crunch lab/liquifire
Marshall JCM2000 DSL+Orange 4x12
Orange Tiny Terror+Mesa Electra Dyne 2x12
Boss TU-2/NS-2/DD-6
Maxon OD808

I picked up a Randall RH150G3 ValveDynamic head for $350US. Head kicks ass. I don't play metal per se, but I can assure you it'll work great for it.

You could also pick up a Line 6 Spider III but to me the distorted amp models are just as good as a cheap distortion pedal on a clean tone.
