Tell the friend that due to an amp explosion you are now temporarily deaf and will judge her friend solely on looks.
The 5150 = 6505
The 5150II = 6505+

I dont think theyre are any others as good at doing metal near your price range. Maybe a used ENGL Fireball IF your lucky.

EDIT: Just noticed you want a combo in which case, disregard the Fireball Suggestion.
The 5150/6505 should be great!

The two amps are completely identical (save for the logos and name), but internally there is NO difference.
