I will be buying a new amp with my tax refund. So I figured I'd come here for some suggestions. As of right now I am playing A jackson kelly js model and a peavey vypyr 15. I am looking to go from anywhere $200-600. I am into thrash, symphonic,gothic,folk, black, and modern metal as well as hardcore and stuff like that. Id prefer to go new if possible.
Lately I have been looking at the Peavey 6505+ 112 combo as well as the peavey vypyr tube 60. Recently the speaker has went out in my vypyr 15. That and my desire to get away from modeling amps has me steered into a diff direction. Id like to save money if possible. I am looking for a tube amp that can do various types of metal music. I dont mind going with the Peavey 6505 112, but saving money is always awesome. Btw I am In northern Indiana in the usa. Thanks in advance.
Honestly, for the money, the 6505 series is hard to beat, no matter which version you get. There's no kind of metal you can't do with it, and it'll cover most other styles well, too, with some tweaking.
