I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

check out Randall amps, they have some good affordable amps for metal

the RG75 was one I was looking into buying before I decided I wanted to build an amp

Only about a million. If you really want to shatter windows, get a used Mesa Boogie 50 Cal ... I got mine used for $499.99. I ended up selling it because it was way too loud for my apartment, but it's like a little Marshall stack.

Also, there are several brands that make great low-wattage tube amps that will sound awesome with a high-gain pedal in front of them. I usually recommend that route, as 15 watts of tube power is enough to play over any drummer at a small venue.

This should narrow it down.
Im lookin for a half stack only.
Around the 500 dollar price range new.
Im not sure if what i saw was the mesa boogie 50 cal or not but ill research it further.
Any other suggestions?
#10
go for the mesa

BUT why a half stack?

You won't be able to afford a decent half stack with 500, let alone a new one. Absolutely no chance. If you want something that is new and actually any good in that price range you will have to go for a combo (or maybe one of those mini stacks that aren't any bigger than a combo anyway).
#12
because people dont tend to take bands seriously around here without anything less than halfs
is ridiculous i know but thats what im dealin with.
but my views are startin to change with discussion; whats yalls suggestion for a good tech death metal rig on a tight budget?
#13
I have one, and I love it. Honestly. Incredi-cleans, a fine overdrive, fantastic EQ, spring reverb, a 12 inch speaker for 100 dollars? Hell, its a terrific deal

oh nvm, youre talking about the bigger ones...in that case, yes, there are far better ones

Well, they must be making up for something they don't have.

Seriously though, if they won't take you seriously unless you have a half stack, then it sounds to me like your town is full of noobs with spider half stacks and "Marshall half stacks" aka an mg half stack. So, grow some balls, buy a combo, show them what you can do with a nice combo rather than a crappy solid state half stack.

The go to brand for cheap metal amps is usually Randall, this one for example:
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product?sku=582327

I have no experience with this specific model though. Could someone else elaborate on it?

Alternatively, this is a popular choice for metal also:

If at all possible, I'd suggest saving up a tad more and getting a Flextone:
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Line-6-Flextone-III-XL-2x12-Stereo-Combo-Amp?sku=482242#used
It's a modeller and therefore extremely versatile, and imo one of the best amps in it's price range for metal.

Out of interest, what other amps have you owned/played?
#18
i really like this amp, i love the cleans and the distortion and crunch are good enough for me, it's a great sounding SS amp, i bought one that i use for band practice (i got the halfstack one, but if i could undo it i'd get the 120 watt combo.. but that's my only regret about it)
#19
If it has the same sound as the early USA versions like the GLX and similar models then im sure it sounds pretty decent. I own a GLX combo (made in usa) and I think its actually a very good amp. the newer versions (flexwave) are made overseas to there may be some quality issues but im guessing the sound quality is similar.

my other guitarrist got one, the combo 212 version and...... its the WORST combination for my JCM 900... the WORSTTT
