My old head died. I want a new, preferably tube head but I'm poor and in college so it has to be under like 6 or 7 hundred bucks. Don't tell me to save up another 400 bucks and buy a better one. At my income rate, that will be in a year. I play metal and hardcore, so I need it to have good gain. And I dont want to put in two hundred bucks to mod it either. If I was going to do that, I'd buy a more expensive, better head.

I need an opinion other than that of the shitty salemen at GC who want to take your money.
So what do you guys think?

2 and 3 are pretty good choices. I assume you already have a cab? In that case, a used 5150, or a used XXX would be good choices, maybe a Mesa f-50 or f-100 head if you can find one to try.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

the b52 will probably have the most gain, but unless im mistaken its the only solid state on that list, dunno if you have a preference, jsut throwing that out there. i play alot of metal and i just ordered the valveking last week, but i will probably get an overdrive or distortion pedal to give it a little more bite

All these, and one more:

He's offering an ENGL and a 5150, the ENGL's out of your price range but the 5150 is $700 and is FJA modded. (That's a good thing)

Nice finds, no work to do here. Modd'd 6505+, nice.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

ValveKing is a definite no, it won't get you the good metal hardcore sound without a boost. The B52 has more of a Mesa sound, and the Bugera is going to get you more of a Peavey sound...

I myself am getting a Bugera soon... I'd get a b52 but the Bugera is a bit cheaper
