Alright so Im getting a Schecter Hellraiser for christmas (Yeet!), and I'm looking for a good metal amp to buy, since right now im playing through a Crate VTX 30. Max budget is 500, and Ive played through a Peavy Valveking 112, and Raven RG200, and I like the sound of both of them. Any suggestions?

Bugera 6260?
Guitar: Ibanez RGR321 EXBK

Amp: Bugera 6260 head + 4x12 cab

Randall RG50 would be a good choice, try that, but also if you like the valveking that could be good, never played the 6260 but have heard good things.

^^You aren't gonna get a Marshall for 500USD unless prices have dropped a lot recently.

Ravens are garbage

for 500 you could get
Valveking with a tube and speaker swap
Used Randall RG50TC
Used Peavey Ultra
Used Peavey 5150
Used Peavey VTM and an overdrive pedal
Used Mesa .50 Caliber

EDIT= I would also consider asking for a cheaper guitar so you can get a more powerful amp, becuase amp is way more of the tone and you could get say an HSS strat and it will still kick ass.

Yea but theyve already bought it, no theres not much of a choice there. But I like the sounds of the randall, does it have decent cleans?

OP wants decent cleans.

I dunno, a Valveking isn't exactly made for metal, although it can certainly do it - even stock. A speaker swap and overdrive will set you right, especially if you buy one used to save money.

Randall RG50TC, Bugera 333XL, Bugera 6262 are all good metal amps with cleans.

If i do get a valeking, im most certainly going to get an OD pedal. My friend had a Boss MT-2 and SD-1, both which I like, so I'd probably get one of those. An by metal I dont mean death metal. I want to be able to play like old Avenged Sevenfold, All That Remains, Killswitch, stuff like that

DO NOT GET AN MT-2, thats not an od pedal, thats a distortion pedal. what you want with the VK is a Tubescreamer, Bad Monkey or something similiar.

i can get a pretty good a7x and killswitch tone with mine. I can even push it into Bodom range with some tweaking.

Ive got a new eminence man o war speaker on the way, that should clear up some of the muddiness.

My bad. But a tube screamer is a little much, with me already getting a hellraiser AND an amp. I might just get a bad monkey. But it looks like i might me settling on a Valveking

Bad Monkeys are great, and an amazing price too.
