So my parents kinda fused my birthday present and my christmas present into one, and I can get a new amp (or used) as well as anything else, as long as it doesn't go over $600.

I was looking into a Peavey 6505+ 112 combo amp, but on Musician's Friend it's been delayed to mid-January, and at my local music store it's marked as $700. Some other amps I've been considering are the Blackstar HT-5 (mini-stack) and the Peavey Valveking 112.

As well, when I practice with my band, I usually can't hear anything but the drums, so the amp has to be louder than that.

I have an Ibanez GRG170DX, and I play some metal (Between the Buried and Me, Protest the Hero, Avenged Sevenfold), some pop punk (All Time Low, Blink-182, A Day To Remember).

Any suggestions?

If you're willing to go used, i've seen 5150 combos for 500-600 $ on kijiji/craigslist
just give me a fender and let me rip
My parents probably won`t buy anything online unless its from a reputable site... I can probably only get used equipment from my local music store...
