I'm looking for a new amp, solid or tube, combo and is good for Thrash/Death Metal. My price limit is about $600, it can be a bit over. Thanks in advance

Edit: Has to be loud enough to hear over drums during band practices

You obviously know nothing, he asked for a tube, a tube combo will do just fine.

Don't listen to him. They will get you through gigs if you mic the amp which you should try and do even if you have a stack to get the best sound possible.

Do yourself a favor - build credit.

It will help you out later in life (like when they pretty much rolled out the red carpet when I asked for a loan on my house)...

"Well, come on in, sir!"

You may get sh*tty credit now, but trust me. Lay down that $600 on a Mesa/Boogie head and start off with whatever cabinet you can get your hands on. Build one. Whatever. Just get that $2000 head - you will think you just picked up Kerry King's rig.

Even clean it will make you cream your pants. - make sure to plan for clean up, my friend!!

Don't even waste your money on a $600 amp. You will have to pay $50 a month or so for a little while, but you will not regret it.

..and the next time you try to buy a car they'll roll out that red carpet for you. (Banks love people with good credit..)

Yes, the F series has only slightly less gain than a recto, but it's much more smooth sounding (imo).

i've gigged with a 15 w solid state combo and that did me fine for an audience of 200 in a large school hall. obviously this isn;t an ideal situation, but a SS combo of 50-75w or higher will do fine, a tube combo of 30w will do fine for most situations too

I financed my first piece of gear at about 16.

Credit means a bank ponies up the money and you pay them back. In exchange they charge you interest, which is how they make money.

Instead of $2000, the amp costs you $2300 - whatever - but if it's something you're serious about then it's an investment.

Spending money on worthless crap = bad.

Spending money on things you're going to use to make a living someday? Priceless.

Are you a serious musician?
