go to guitar center.
you can trade in your old amp and use money from it towards a new one.
you can buy a marshall MG100DFX for 600 $ US and it is just amazing.
(its what i got) i traded in my marshall MG50DFX for it

Marshall JCM900, check eBay.

Do NOT get a MG

If you're going to get a half stack, go big or go home. Diezel Vh4.

All a cheap half stack really does is to enhance your ePenis.

If you don't have so much cash, Buy a good combo amp instead. You don't need a half stack unless you're playing in large venues. If you plan on having it on your room, a half stack is overkill.

Now. There are alot of good tube combos you would rather get. Like a ENGL screamer or perhaps a Laney? I leave it up to the Laney folks to reccomend a... Laney:p

In the marshall country there is much goodly good. Maybe a DSL tube combo?.

Maybe you could even fancy a Valveking or something else in the Peavey country.

In half stacks, you shouldn really buy anything without tubes. All halfstacks... Really all amps have to be cranked real loud to sound awesome. But i imagine a half stack needs to be really cranked compared to a equal combo.

Here are some:

ENGL Screamer 50 (Omg this amp is truly awesome!)
Marshall DSL 412 ( I own the Head version. Works awesomly to Metallica and Megadeth)
Marshall TSL 601
Peavey valveking 212
Laney VC30 or VC50 ( I don't now anything about Laney, but checked Timi_Hendrix's list.)

A good combo is better for you.

And, don't give us that "but it won't be loud enough" ****e.

Big bands use combos all the time (Opeth use Laney VC50's...that's a combo)

Save 400-500 more and get an ENGL Screamer 50w
