I've recently found a pretty good amp with nice overdrive and 6505+112 combo that shakes the ground. Price range 300 $ For Stock A New one? Can it support medium - small gigs? Anyone has it?

With a mic you can use something like a EPi. Blues Junior. By you mentioning a 6505 I guess you'll play metal?

Go with the 6505+ combo for sure

i don't think a 6505 would be good for thrash or even death metal. Too modern sounding for me IMO. Perhaps a used Randall RD50 combo? More suitable in my opinion.

6505 can cover pretty much any metal style. pretty sure that's why its a metal staple

the 6505+ combo is 60 watts and plenty loud enough for most small to mediium gigs.

It's a metal staple because it's cheap and sounds decent. But yeah, if a 6505 is too modern sounding(Like for me), Ts, I suggest that Randall.

while the combo may be on the inexpesive side the head isn't. for modern metal it is the go to amp because it delivers. the combo is really tough to beat for the price and performance.

OP your title mentions the VIP which has a 6505 mode but isn't the same amp at all. pretty sure that is a 30 watt non tube amp and by itself probably isn't up to what you want without it being mic'd.
