Okay, so I've decided that I want to sell my Peavy Classic 30 and 6506+ and get a used combo amp. Problem is, I don't know which one to get. Living in a small area, I'm stuck to what my ONE AND ONLY local music store has to offer (all shit SS amps). That being said, I love heavy metal and Shawn Lane esque jazz fusion.

Any suggestions? I'd need one to play in a band situation, but I need mobility so it'd have to be a combo.

If I have to choose a specific genre, I'd say heavy metal. Let's say my price range is $1500 give or take a few hundred.
What's the closest major city to you? if you're willing to do some travelling, you can snag some kick ass deals from Craigslist.

There's a Line 6 Vetta with an FBV board in Sioux City for $750.

A head and 2x12 cab is more portable than a combo in my personal oppinion.
Closest major city?

Seriously, my advice is sell the Classic 30 and get a good 212.

i would say get a 1/4 stack instead of a combo. it's easier to move. plus, there weren't many good combos in Des Moines.

Mesa boogie Triple Rec - $1350

Single Rec w/ 2x12 cab - $1200

Fender Deluxe Reverb RI - $775

Mesa Boogie F30 combo - $700

Peavey VTX combo - $450

Traynor YCV40 combo - $400

Check the used section on the Guitar Center website, and you'll find anything you're looking for. I ordered my Mesa Rectoverb, my Schecter, and my Fender from Guitar Centers in Raleigh, Philadelphia, and Chicago even though I live in Houston. Plus, they sell gear CHEAP; the Mesa I bought was $800, but it'd have been twice as much if bought brand-new.
As for suggestions, I'd definitely suggest a Mesa Rectoverb, it's a versatile amp and I can get really gritty distorted tones in addition to shining cleans.
