    What I got for less than $500 (incl. shipping) was a used Carvin R600 head off Ebay + a new Avatar 2x10 cab. You might want to look into a component rig like that because it's more flexible/expandable than getting another combo.

    a used eden/nemesis 410 combo could probably be had for around $475 or soo
     
  4. I got my 350-watt Ampeg B2R and SVT48HE cab for $500 off eBay. Point is, you can get some pretty good used stuff for your $500 bones if you keep an eye and ear out.

    Polytone makes some pretty good amps in that range.

    Also, check out the Acoustic Image Contra.
