Randall VMAX with a Yamaha Magicstomp for $565? Good deal? And how is the VMAX in terms of tone etc for those whove heard one?

Personally I think you can do better at that price - you can get a 5150, a JCM900 Dual Reverb combo, a DSL401. You got options and I don't think that is your best.
so are you saying it wont have a good sound for Straight Up Thrash/Modern Metal? Ive looked up on ebay (Thats were this deal is coming from), the 5150 is $500-$700 used, the JCM is about $600, and a DSL 401 is about $400, but im more interested in a head than a combo.
For thrash, the 5150 is THE amp for that budget.
if i have the time to save up the money ill consider it, then again ill need a cab for it, which will take more time, but im having a hard time convincing my mother to let me buy any thing on Ebay, because she thinks theres a %100 chance that itll be a fraud or it will not work. I'd like to have a good amp thats at my budge like a used 5150/6505, but i dont have the money to buy new.
Check your local stores, to see if they have any used ones - also check craigslist.
