Gwynnell is right, you don't really ever need a 100w ever. I have a 50w valveking that sounds amazing, and is plenty for all the shows I've ever played. If the gig is too big to hear your amp from a distance it will be mic'd anyways.
Gear:
Gibson SG w/ Bare Knuckle Aftermaths
Early 90s Fender MIM Telecaster
Squier VM Jaguar
Ibanez RGD7421
Blackstar HT-100

Ibanez EX
Carvin bx500 w/ Peavey 2x10&1x15

Agree again with the 100 watt statement. I don't know why Claudio Sanchez has a Triple Rec. I've played venues that hold people in the thousands, and couldn't turn my [dual rec] volume past 11 o'clock. Quite a bummer. For that price I'd definitely go with the Egnator Rebel.

Also, for that price range you will not find a good half stack.

Either save more or get a combo
#8
Do you already own a cab? If you don't, then just look into combos. You'll get way more for your money.

According to his profile he has an avt cab.

I'd recomend selling that and the spider and get a decent combo

Agreed. That'll give him around $800 or $900 dollars (hopefully), which is a pretty good budget for a combo.
#11
yeah i have an avt cab , sounds pretty sweet , i wanna ditch the spider , but i dont want a combo , i play metal core / deathcore , and my band is gigging/ supporting a group of 3 signed bands who we are in with so i want some real chunky but clear tone

cheers for your advice so far

Why don't you want a combo?

You can get much better combos in your budget than halfstacks in that budget.

But you could sell it and get even more money so you can get an even BETTER combo, and your tone would be 10x better.

On Ebay, there is a 6505 head for $465, 316 pounds, it ends in 2 days. The 6505 seems up your alley, and it is 120W, plenty of headroom. For a good head, you'll need to push up your budget a tad.

were trying to help you, in that budget the combos are gonna be better than the halfstacks. if you dont wanna listen to us and you want to end up with a low end amp that doesnt sound good, go ahead.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Just sell some gear you don't use, get a job, do something, 100-300 pounds could put you in the range of a used 6505 head.

Considering the 6505 retails from £700-900 i doubt you'll find a used one for £300

As I said, there was one on Ebay for $465, which is 315 pounds. Also, he said he'd try and push it up a bit. How do you make the pounds symbol?

Probably, but, these Ebayers might ship to the UK.
