Hey guys, I'm thinking about purchasing my first tube amp head. I want something that is about 650 max. I am mostly interested in something that'll play metal mainly. Something similar to the Peavey 5150. Any suggestions are welcome!

Peavey 5150/6505? You can easily get a used combo in that range.

bugera 6262, get the warranty...

Head, $475, cab $250. Just a little over budget.

those are new prices btw.

You absolutely will not find a good half stack for that price unless you get incredibly lucky. You do not, nor will ever need a half stack.

Well if it's just the head why not get a used 5150/6505?

Craigslist, eBay, etc. Anywhere you can find used gear. I see them for way cheaper than 650 all the time.
