A Randall head could suffice in that price range. The RX120RH is a decent 120W head for metal playing, it's $359 at Musicians Friend.

I think this is a 400w 5150 and a B52 cab for bid.

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/esd/msg/1086567460.html


Not sure about the LOG but the 100w Windsor head can be had for $250 new. Valveking maybe $300 used. I believe there is a Vypyr head coming out but I don't know too much about it.

Used Classic 30 head might do it. Good Luck.

what is a 400w 5150?

Not much in that price range, but maybe you can find a used B-52 at or a Bugera 6260.

I don't know.

It's either a power amp or a modded 5150. Seems like a f'd up post. Not a lot of information. There are scams on craigslist too.

yeah... i think that may be the cabs wattage

I agree, MG's arent bad. I actually kind of like them. It can give you a pretty good gain tone, just like a marshall tube amp. Marshalls are kind of over-rated anyways though. you could get a peavey that is better than a marshall for 300$ just because zakk wylde, randy rhoads, and alot of people use them soesnt mean they are worth the price for someone who isnt famous and cant afford a $5000 JCM 800 stack. But pretty much what i am saying is peavey is a better bang for your buck than a marshall.

I posted this from one of Bulletrocks522 last post here on UG. He is moving on to HC. He said...

Like I said, look at B-52's, then spend the extra money on your choice of either an OD boost, an EQ pedal, a retube, or a speaker change.



Here was his demo of his combo if you have not seen it.

The Randall RX120R head is actually not such a silly suggestion, all the heads in your price range are going to be crap, theres no way around it, so i'd say the randall 120R is pretty crap in the big scheme of things, but i think it will b about the best u can do for that price range, mine has copped a ton of abuse they are well built

Hold on.

Is it that you have a Peavey Triple XXX, but just don't like it? If that's the case, sell it and get something better than what you would get for a meager $300.

If not, then I suggest buying used or saving up. If you are lucky, you could get a used 5150.

I was just thinking that. If you don't like your XXX, trade it for something. There are a lot of people here and on the HC forums that would love that amp.

I think that a used JCM800 could do the trick for you.

And if you wanna keep your XXX, find a B-52 like what was already suggested.
