I'm going to get a new amp soon, But It seems there is nothing for what I play. If I was rich, I know what exactly what I would get: a Mesa Mark IV. But I can only spend under $500

I want to play Death Metal, Shred and Classic Rock, I wouldn't mind having a decent clean tone, but I don't really care too much.


What the heck should I get. I kinda want something all tube, but for $500 or less, There really isn't much out there.

Sam Ash and Guitar Center have a lot of sales (Sam Ash have more it seems like), so sign up for their newsletters to find out when they'll have one, and that will open up a lot more options for you (they just had a 20% off anything over $300 sale, a $500 amp 20% off is $400, a $650 amp is $520 ).

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

Damned Canada, they got another one... I'm sure you must have some music superstores though? Or go start lessons somewhere to get a student discount (even with the cost of lessons you'd still walk away with money saved, and a free month of lessons :P).

We have Long an McQuade, which is a chain, but extremely overpriced and no haggling. And we got Tom Lee which is pretty good.

Dude I truely think a Peavey Valveking 112 or 212 is your best bet, they sound great and are affordable, either that or look for a used Peavey XXX combo on ebay, they go for about $450 or $500

There is seriously no way in hell a person can be serious about that comment, it has to be another attempt to be SIG'ed

You're either a troll, or just really quite stupid.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

After hearing a Valveking on youtube, It sounds pretty good, and its under my budget, so I can get some pedals.


Do you think the 1x12 combo is loud enough to gig.
