I was looking at this amp in the guitar center catalog and it was something I just had to find out about.

It's the Raven RG100H and RG412 Half Stack and the price is at $500 so it was kinda an eye opener.

Can a halfstack for this price actually be worth something? I know it's a new brand as well, so it's not going to be overly expensive but still.

My question is, has anybody tried one of these, and if you have how is it and is it loud enough to play some medium sized venues?

There is also the Randall RX120RH and RX412 Half Stack.

I forgot to mention that I play in a hardcore southern rock band, so I need something that can cut through everything else but still have a crunchy sound and harmonics.
pay me the same amount and ill give you better head than an amp ever could.

It's not really worth it, to be honest. You could et much better for $500, especially if you go used.

What type of music do you play? Where do you live? That'll help if you tell us that

Raven amps sound like bad Frontman knockoffs.

any half stack for $500 is going to a be a giant pos...if your going to get a half stack, you save for a good one, or you just get a combo

The Windsor is great value - so long as you know how to get the sound you want.

I want to try to get a tone similar to Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, but there is no way I can afford a Bogner so I'm looking for something a little different.

I dont think you fully understand how loud 100 watts is man.
Imagine putting your ear right against the bass drum cover whilst someone is using it. Thats how loud a 100 watt amp is, except it's poluting 100% of the air around you, and making your heart syncopate beats with palm mutes.

I know how loud 100 watts is. I wasn't asking about that. I was asking about what cab would be suited for it.
