i've searched all over craigslist and local music stores and have had no luck finding any amp that would suit me in my price range. so it looks like i have to buy new. i have about $750 to spend MAX on the head, and am looking for a good one to match with a 2x12 avatar cab with vintage 30's. I play in a hardcore, death metal, metalcore band that is starting to gig on a frequent basis. i would be willing to buy a good OD pedal if that is what would work best to get a good chunk and good leads/solo's.

PLEASE, don't suggest a used 5150 or 6505, i've looked all over and there's no way i'm buying used off ebay without even testing it.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.

would you be open to combo's?


probably not, not because i one of those people that just NEEDS a halfstack but more so because i'm stuck on vintage 30's and know extacly how im going to get them, just not sure about heads in my price range

Í bought an SLO 100 & Mojave Scorpion on ebay w/ no problems at all. It's really a great way to go. I saved $1000 US on the SLO & $800 on the Scorpion. Both were in absolutely brand new perfect condition.
I look for legitimate music stores that sell on ebay. They have 1000's of positive feedbacks, & won't risk their reputations selling you a piece of sh!t. I live in Calif, & got my SLO from a music store in Phoenix, AZ, & the Mojave from another store in Atlanta, GA. Both were expertly packed & worked perfectly.
I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss ebay to save a crapload of cash.
Good luck!
