Are you sure you need a half stack. They are kind of a pain in the a$$ to move around. Also, for 5-600 bucks, you could get a nice tube amp. A 40 or 50watt tube is as loud or louder than the 100w solid states. Plus, they sound much better. Depending on your style of music, I could recommend you some good tube combos.

Good amp brands that make tube combos around 600 bucks include:
Fender
Vox
Traynor
Hughes and Kettner
Peavey
Mesa Boogie (I think the f30 is around that price. I am sure some used combos like the nomad are not that expensive anymore)

We can help you better if you give us more information such as:
types of music you play
whether you play just at home or gig
what current equipment you have
etc

How heavy of metal do you play? Can you list some bands? That would help a bit.

With a good pedal, it could probably nail those tones. I'll warn you now though, it is ****ing loud.
