So my dad asked me what kind of combo tube amp is the best if you are just playing around in the house. I've never really played combo tube amps, even though I've been playing for 20+ years. He plays thrash metal/hard rock. Anyways, his price range is between 500-700 bucks. And don't be talking about stacks because he REALLY doesn't need one of those... I can't really tell him what to buy because I'm not very educated in combo amps... I'm just a guitar technician...

Tell him to be a real man, and get a Plexi full stack (Yeah, expanded budget too) and just dime it lol.

But if not for the price, I'd say check out the Marshall Haze 15 mini stack, sounds pretty decent from what I've heard, but the head alone is $700 or so, and each of the 1x12" cabs would be like $400.

Edit: And don't remind me of the no stack rule, this thing is basically only a 2x12 15watt combo, with flexibility.

Okay, let me get the straight...

YOU have been playing for over twenty years.

YOUR FATHER plays thrash metal/hard rock.

Have I got that right?

lol, that is kinda the reverse of the typical music tastes...but I would look into Peavey. The 6505 and the Triple X are both great combos for metal. You may need to kinda expand your budget, but its worth it.

Not impossible, but certainly unexpected.

Unless TS started playing at age 2 or something, 20 years of playing puts him at an age where he could easily have children himself. So I asked, having a bit of curiosity about
"Grandpa" playing thrash-metal.
