I really dig hard rock, like Three Days Grace, harder Skillet, Breaking Benjamin, some Chevelle, this stuff. Basically, all the PRS SC250>Mesa Dual Rectifier :P

But im too poor to own this kind of stuff. So i was just wondering what where the ''poor man'' version of these? Mostly under 500$, and combo please^^

(P.S.:I'm just talking about amps here)

the used market. you can snag some sick deals in the used market. maybe you could get an old 5150 or 6505, maybe even a dual rec if you're lucky.

else, maybe something like jet city

those will all be better for what you play over that JCA2112

Your best bet will be to save up more, you're just a bit outside the range of a used Dual Recto. I've seen them go for $800 or a bit more.

And the JCA2112 will not do what you want either.

you can find used 6505+ combo's for that all day long. I've heard people say the combo sucks though, so I haven't actually played one personally. Find one in a store and check it out... Then find one used and save teh moneyz.

JSX is a pretty nice amp too, if you can find one used in your budget, grab it.

And like Raijouta said, if you can hold off and save up a bit more cash, you're REALLY close to used recto territory. Not sure what your local used market is like... Is QC Quebec City??

Well, i was just wondering. my actual budget is much lower, like around 300$. and QC means Quebec, i actually live near montreal. More precisely in Mont-Saint-Hialire.

Well, you're really not going to find anything for that much, then.

The people that say that are bandwaggoning idiots. It's an AWESOME amp for the price, and with a few upgrades can be even better.

But anyway, yes a 6505+ combo would do those tones without breaking a sweat. Of course, if you wanted to go beyond that "soft" version of rock, it could do that as well. I jest.

Yeah that's why I threw that disclaimer in there, and reccomended he try one out. I figured the combo version of one of the most popular metal amps can't be THAT bad.
