As you can tell i am on a REALLY tight budget of $300. I play anything from classic rock, to hard rock, to a little death metal like behemoth. I am willing to go used if you chose "other" in the poll. But i don't buy online . my current amp is a marshall MG15FX.

Have you looked at a Peavey Bandit 112?

I just got one and I absolutely love it and it's just in your price range.

It's really loud and I like the tones I can get out of it. I think it's worth a look.

I have an MG and I really don't like it and I personally think a Line 6 sounds way too digital.

You could score a used Peavey Classic 30 or crate V series in that price range. You'd need a pedal to get into death metal territory though. Out of what you said, probably the Valveking or Windsor.

He'd still definitely need to get a boost with the valveking. It's really not voiced for metal... at all. I'm borrowing a buddies, and it barely get's into high gain territory when I boost it. :/

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

The Windsor as well. I used to own the half stack and it could get pretty gainy but it just didn't have that tight gain found in most metal.

Well, I'm thinking the Vypyr sounds good for him right aboot nao.

The Windsor is a good amp, and thought about getting it at one time, but I like having clean channels. So I got a VK112. Good amp, but if you can, try and find a Peavey Classic 30 used. That was another amp that was good that I played while amp shopping.
