looking to buy a tube amp probably used I like to play classic rock and metal and my budget is probably less than $500 American. Also I have a mg 412A cabinet which is not that great should I get a head and use it with this cabinet or just sell this cab? Or maybe get a combo?

^No.

It can go either way with the MG cab, FWIW. You can probably get a decent amount of money for it, just because people will buy because it says Marshall.

On the other hand, getting a head, and upgrading your cab in the future isn't a bad option either.


What exactly do you find unsatisfactory about the Tiny Terror heads?

15 watters are too loud to crank in one's bedroom if that's what you want it for, especially when they're higher gain like the Tiny Terror.

I say Vypyr Tube 60 or a used Peavey XXX.

They're too expensive in the US, low headroom, and I don't like the OD on them. I also don't like how they're always recommended as great bedroom and gigging amps. They're too loud for most bedroom players, and not enough clean headroom for giggers. And they are definitely not voiced for metal.


All tube amps are too loud for most bedroom players. And an amp doesn't have to be "voiced for metal" to get a good metal tone out of it. And the OD definitely sounds better than any other amp in that price range.

I know. That's why I almost never recommend one for them.

You can coax a decent one. But it's not the amp for metal, in that price range, as some people put it.

No. Go play some more amps.

if I was you I would continue to save till your able to get a very good amp.. something like a Bugera 6262 w/cab is $800.. or you could save to $600 and get a Peavey 6505+ 112 combo amp.
