I've got no ways of affording a rack, so I might as well buy myself a combo/halfstack. I'm looking at 5 different amps right ow, I just need a little more input. Here they are :

Line 6 Spider 3 150 (212)
Crate GTX212
Peavey Valveking (112)
Randall something 50T + Behringer 412
Line 6 Spider 3 HD75 +Behringer 412

If you have another recomdation, i play 80s metal and my budget is about $700 Canadian, which about $530 U.S.

My rig:
Schecter Synyster Gates Custom
Squire Stratocaster

Line 6 Spider III + some pedals

recording Gear
Pro Tools LE 8
Mackie Tracktion 3
Shure PG57
Behringer Ultragain micpre
Fostex PMO-4 monitors
Nearly every free (not craked) plugin ever made

awesome music choice

kill a hippie with a broken jack daniels bottle and get their wallet.

then buy a soldano

(make sure its a rich hippie)

Out of those, the valveking wins hands down. Get the 1x12 and then you'll have some money left over for pedals!

among true hippies, there is no wealth. they tend to look down on commercial/material things.

definately the valveking. the line6s are terrible unless youre only using them for queit bedroom use, then they sound ok (ish). dont really know about the crate or randall.
oh, and most hippies are kinda poor so youre better off ripping off a charity or finding a rich girlfriend.

Not really a "pround (sic) Krank owner" then?

I'd go Valveking, then get a 2x12 closed back cab to go with it.

+1 easy, cheap, and versatile

Avoid Line 6 Spider amps
Crate makes some decent tube amps, nothing special about their other amps
Randall is good but you'll want a good cab to go with it

For metal, a head and cab is a better idea than a combo.

The Valveking head is about $500 Cdn, and you can find a good 2x12 for under $300.

Check out Avatar cabs

click on Scratch, Dent, Overstock in the top right hand corner, they have two 2x12 cabs with Vintage 30's for under $300.

P.S. Where in Canada do you live?

I'm a little late answering, butthe Krank thing is a joke, i put it there to see what people would say. I know lots of people hate Kranks.

thanks foe the opinions, and i'm to young for a girlfriend still
