That's a no brainer. The 6262. It's tube driven and sounds awesome. Although I don't think I'd buy it used since the older version had a bunch of reliability issues.

But definitely 6262>Mg by far.
Whats the longest word?

Bugera, hands down. The Bugera is an all tube amp (not that you have to have teh toobz to sound good) and it sounds good. Aside from a few notorious reliability issues, Bugeras are pretty well built amps.

The Marshall MG series are crap. They are poorly constructed using cheap materials and they have a very undesired tone. The smaller amps are okay for practice purposes (although you can get better amps for the same price) but when you get up to the larger amps you are basically getting an over-sized practice amp. Definitely not worth the money.

I wouldn't say the 6262 is ideal for bedroom use. A B-52 AT-112 is probably more ideal, if so. Or a Line 6 Spider Valve.
But if you're gigging on a tight budget and want a metal sounding amp, the Peavey Vypyr Tube series and the Bugera lineup are solid choices. Probably the best you can go for.

The used market will obviously offer more, but only as a far as a Peavey 5150 combo.

You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

don't listen to these n00bs. the 6262 does NOT have teh CRUSHING OVERDRIVE that the MG100HFX possesses. plus, the 6262 does not have any built in effects. once again, the MG100HFX is superior. and you don't have to worry about t00b maintenance, which is pesky and costs lots in the long run.

all these n00bs are just running a smear campaign against Marshall because they all bought crappy amps and wish they had one. so they make themselves feel better by saying Marshall is teh badz.

Hey, Jimmy Page, Angus Young, Jimi Hendrix, Zakk Wylde and Slash ALL use Marshall amps, so obviously their good.



just kidding, dude. just get the 6262.

With what?

This is nothing personal, but I'm tired of hearing about mics being the solution to amplification problems.
PA systems have to be very accurate to duplicate your amplifies tone into your ears and your band mates ears. You can't just spend £1000 on a set of speakers and expect that to suit your gigging needs. And the places that already own PA systems don't always mic you up properly. You're not guaranteed to even have a system and a sound engineer.
The gigs that I have done, on seven occasions, I had to totally rely on the sound of the amplifier. Fortunately, I had a Mesa Single Rect at the time--It was the only time it got used to it's potential--and it was okay.
I've done sound engineering before at gigs myself. And when a young lad comes on stage with a 30 watt Spider III and says "mic it up, Dan". I feel like killing somebody.

Yes, mic'ing up at gigs is essential, but if you want to be sure, so is a 20-onwards watt amplifier.

Isnt the 6262 120w? Thats more than enough tube power :S
#17
The Bugera 6262 is 120 watts. It's valve and has two 12" speakers. It's more than loud enough. It happens to sound very good, as well.

But to answer your quesion... 20 watts of valve power through a 4x12 cabinet is the lowest I would recommend you going. That's if you don't play anything cleanly. 50 watts has always been the best of the bunch in my eyes. But anything above or below that is fine (apart from less than 20)

For $500 I'd stop messing around and just get a used 5150 and be done with it.
