I'm looking for an amp head that won't make me go broke and doesn't have a thousand channels with cheap effects. preferably something with a high wattage. If any one has any suggestions (I don't care how dumb) they would help.
Just remember, we all used to be the kid who tried to play metal with a stratocaster and a line 6 spider amp.

Jet City, 20W is good but if you want 2 channels go for the 50W. Carvin Legacy. Vox, Fender...?

What genres?
I have a huge fear if rays.

Metal and Buckethead type stuff

You want actual head?

I would say 6505 combo if you want something new, or a used 5150 combo or head if you already have a cab. Maybe a used Rectifier head?

Other than that.... well there isn't much that won't make most people broke.
