Hey guys, im buying a new amp, and i'm not really sure what to go for. I will be using this amp for metal, and i play bands like Bullet for my Valentine, Metallica, Bring me the Horizon etc. My guitar is an Ibanez RGA42, and the budget is £500.
Will be using it in my room, at jams and possibly some small gigs too.

Ive heard alot of good things about the peavey 6505+ 112, so what are your thoughts on that?

Also, is it worth buying a cheaper amp and getting good distortion pedals etc?

I would prefer a cab and head, but im not too bothered if its a combo.

ENGL Screamer or Thunder, better than the 6605 and with a boost gets as brutal.

maybe if your after the 6505 sound a Bugera 6262 would be appropriate but the 6505 112 is great aswell, both would achieve the sound you want
