      Yes you will. Keep looking...they sell for 500 all the time on CL. Check the spam thread as well, recently there have been a couple guys selling 6505 combos...also check on ebay, sometimes you will see a combo go for under 500 on there.

            I can appoint you to a used 5150 combo for $300, if you'd like.

              Ultra/Ultra Plus. Tons of gain but a hair less modern sounding and noticeably more articulate. Same with the older Triumphs.

                      Im not really looking for a new "metal" amp. Im in search of another mid-gain rock amp. JMP-esque.

                        Rhythm channel with the crunch and bright switches in and gain anywhere under 5 will give you some GREAT low-mid gain toanz!!

                            I have heard numerous Valve Kings that could have fooled me as being 5150's and they are pretty cheap.

                              Valve king isnt bad, but if you are looking for a 5150 sound, and its in your budget, why wouldnt you get it?
