Alright well Christmas is only 2 months away, and i need a new amplifier BADLY. Alright first off, i need a better Amplifier. My current one is a Line 6 Spider II and it doesn't cut it, everything about it is WAY to digital, and it doesn't offer what i would like. I want like a Pantera kind of tone. Like a trash,heavy,sluggish tone, also like a Killswitch tone. But i don't know what amplifier to get. My budget for an amp tops can be NO! higher than $450 or $500. My guitar is fine for now, just need to do a string change, which I'm to lazy for due to the Floyd Rose double-lock

Can anyone tell me what would be good to get?

It's 3 months dum****...and even if it was only two months i mean it's still a long time.
Oh and get a VOX for the sake of the thread.

Alright this is not helping. Kookie there was no reason to flame. And I'm being told my 2 different people to get 2 different amps. Can someone give me an actual good amp, that would give me what i stated i want, and worth my money.

see if you can get a used 5150 combo off ebay...a lot of people are totally against combos, but i haven't played a 5150 combo that hasn't been brutal (and perfect for pantera covers, in terms of your budget). I haven't looked around on there for awhile, but they typically go for $380-$500. it'll have more gain than you'll ever need (i thought that statement was bold, but after owning a 6505+ for about five months i'd have to concur).

Yeah, ebay and craigslist are both good. Use amps offer the best value.

i love craigslist. and i second the used 5150 idea (though if you like crystal-clear cleans you'd be a bit outta luck)

Used Mesa F-30/F-50 or Peavey 5150.

I'm a nub to amps so i don't understand all this 986564857235/595012356826045 stuff. And i cant find a randall anymore. I think guitar center may have one, but would it fit my budget. Which is $450-$500.

Its a Peaveys Eddie van halen old sig amp, and since the EVH 5150 III came out they renamed it 6505.


Well... actually, the 5150 III just recently came out and the 6505 has been around for a while. The 5150 was renamed the 6505 because Van Halen no longer endorses them and "5150" was his own copyrighted name, so they switched it to 6505 in honor of their 40th anniversary ('65-05).

5150 Combo.
You CAN get them pretty cheap used on eBay/craigslist

But, i don't see any point in looking for it now...you are going to find a deal..and i'm about..99.8 percent sure that it won't be there when Christmas rolls around.
