^^Yeah but people ask too much for used gear these days. New it's about €1300, probably cheaper over in the US (I think) so 700 should be a nice price for a used one.

EDIT: even cheaper. The 6505 212 combo is €1185 on thomann.de and the head is €1099

On that budget, I would get a used Peavey Triple X head.
They can be found used for between $500-$700
MARSHALL JVM 210H
PEAVEY JSX
KRANK 412
MESA 412
FENDER STRATS
DIMARZIO
CELESTION

And where do you think that I could find used triple XXX head in my country?
Here, you could just steal that amp or buy a new one!lol

+1 Its a far more versatile amp than a 5150, and IMO sounds better to. I seen them go for 500 dollars on ebay, and they are a steal at that price, with proper tube, and EQing they can sound incredable too.

Edit: Since your overseas peavey amps are out, look into Laneys oranges and Marshalls.

For metal, the JCM 900 are good choice, although I prefer the JCM 800s, although they are not quite as gainy they sound better and less fizzy, you will have to look for a used amp because Marshall no longer makes ethier of those models.
