Looking for a good amp head. I've considered a Marshall mf350h, but am unsure

Budget: $500
Genres: Punk rock(Fall Out Boy), Metal (The Devil Wears Prada), Worship, Hard Rock
New or used, I'm not very picky.
I gig some, but need something for my studio as well.
Live near Charlotte NC.

I'm fine with a one channel amp too, I can always have more pedals.


Current Gear:
PRS SC SE (soon to have emg 81/85's)
Fender Mexi Tele
Line 6 Spider II 75w
Boss Metal Core
Boss Chorus
Boss Equalizer

Sorry man I should have specified to edit your first thread like that. Thanx for changing it for us, my bad for not being specific. A mod will probably close the other one for you.

Ill start checking your Clist for you.

No a mod will have to do it for you. Just don't bump the other one and let it die and we will just post in this one.

Ok. Go to guitarcenter.com/used. Type in Peavey VTM. There is a VTM 60 head there for $250. Would do what you want I believe. Highly underrated amps. Should leave you 200 for a cab to find locally or if you can get a little extra cash to cover shipping for both items Whitebox custom cabs has a sale on the classic series cabs: $250 for the 2x12.

Highly rec getting a 2x12 cab. A good 2x12 cab will sound better than a poor quality 4x12 and will be much lighter to carry.

I don't think any single non-modeling amp in your budget will really do that... you're talking about tones ranging from a JCM800 to a 6505 to Triple Rectifier to an Uberschall... quite a big bill to fill for any amp, let alone an amp under $500.

Are you open to modelers? Cause I can recommend the Peavey Vypyr Tube all day. You'd have to sell your pedals and get a Sanpera though.

+1. Peavey Vypyr is the way to go.

Pro Tip - Neck pickup, tone dial rolled all the way off, makes tuners respond WAY more accurately. I only learned this trick fairly recently, and it actually works.

The Vypyr is a really good choice.

I had one before I went to my Valveking. Which is another excelent choice, but a little bit pricy.

There is a great used market for the VK
