peavey 6505+ 112 or bugera? all i can think of in that price bracket. haven't tried them, though.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Save up some more, don't listen to people driving you toward unreliable equipment like Bugera. If you want to play Metallica, you should consider a Randall, but even at 5W, even an used one might be more expensive than 400 bucks.

I was able to nail "Before I Forget" tone when I was messing around with a 6505+ 112 in a store.

The Blackstars are great for practise amps, but you couldn't gig with a HT5

Orange Dark Terror. I played one yesterday and was super duper surprised about how much gain there was on tap alone. It really is a one trick pony though and will do probably the best metal sound in your price range. It has an fx loop, switchable 15 to 7 watts, EL84's and it teeny weeny.

Go play one and see for yourself.

That's the advantage of being such a distance from Yianni. I can continue to live my life without fear of stumbling upon his dark terror.

I was wanting to get one, but I keep hearing the tone sucks. Please tell me it isn't so.

I've got a Blackstar HT5 and you can get some heavy sounds out of it but you need pedals because the amp OD isn't all that.

It's very loud though for home use - you need nice neighbours!

Well... I can't say I'm a fan, but its certainly better than a Blackstar.

if your budget isnt going to increase anytime soon, and your looking for a head...

search around for a crate bv series.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.
