I'm thinking of buying one of these heads. I just need one to start with. Now I saw a recent ad in my location on craigslist for 300. It comes with the head and cab together.

Is it worth it? I have a really small tight budget and just need something small first, and maybe build onto something big. I can't spend too much as of right now but much later on I can get something better and maybe just keep the cab?

I'm looking to play the metalcore/hardcore genre mainly. I heard someone say with a pedal you can get pretty good tones out of it.

My guitar is a schecter c-1+ with emg 81/85's 85 in the bridge.

Opinions?

I guess for 300 it isnt bad, but by any means, this isnt a good amp, and also the marshall name doesn't do it justice.

It wont go anywhere near your genre. Nor will it have good gain. I don't know what to reccomend on the budget, but i can certainly say you're looking in the wrong direction

from Gabe's thread of great wisdom:
Valvestate series one (Chorus ones): Ok solid state amps. The cleans and chorus is pretty good, but the distortion isn't.

Valvestate series two Lifeless, dull sounding amps.

I'm looking at a peavey ultra 120 plus now though any thing on that one?
