Well, since you have a crate GT head running into an MG cab, I see you aren't too uptight with your tone.

Well, I can't believe that i'm saying this, but keep the cab for now. Just spend the 600 on a new head.
And, maybe B-52 has an amp in your price range, or if you can get a tube randall for that price...
Not too sure though, since i'm not super keen on metal amps.

Ahh... Here we go:

Sell your Crate head and Marshall cab, and get this and this.

Eh... the stock speakers in the valveking are the same quality as the marshall MG ones. I'd just keep the cab if I were you, and burn or pitch or give away the crate head.
And just pick up that B52 head.
Or, some other nice randall or something like that. 600 bucks isn't a huge budget.

Why so stubbern on no combo? for $600 your not going to find a half stack that even resembles botique amps like mesa or orange, their expensive for a reason. the best you could do would be to sell the head and cab and buy either an all tube randall combo, a b-52 at or a peavey valveking, but the only stacks your going to be able to get for $600 are going to be solid state pieces of ****.

Ah yes, you have a condition that many guys live with and are affected by everyday. It's called a penis.

^He already has the cab though.
All he would have to do is replace the head.

when did he say he was using 600. To me it appears that his budget is 300 >_>

Yeah. He said 300 for each.
Of course, he'd end up with some piece of crap if he did that.

1st of all my computer was being retarted and posted this thread twice i dont know why second of all i can only spend 300 per peice not keep one and then 600 i dont know why my parents just wont let me
#13
^Wait... your parents are only allowing you to spend 300 on each piece of a halfstack?
They won't let you scrap the head and upgrade it and just keep the cab, and just upgrade to a better head?
Your parent's crazy... That's why I buy everything myself .

Just get a combo then!

Completely unrealistic.

You need to either...

a.) raise more cash

or

b.) go for a combo

In actuality, you really need to do a combination of the two.

If you want a "boutique or almost boutique sound," then you do care whether it's tube or not, and you want tube.
You Don't Need a halfstack.

You Don't Need 100W.

^Yeah, what slats said.
That first post didn't really make any sense.
But, in your first post you say that you have a total budget of 600 bucks, but can only spend 300 on each right? That's how I understood it.
Just save up more then.

And slats, I think I may just get that Swart Atomic Space Tone.
Thanks for showing me it!
It's the coolest little amp ever. I may get Swart's rangemaster clone to go with it since I may have some cash left over.
