    Noob,

    My suggestion would be to try to find a used SWR Workingman's 15. You should be able to land one for around $300. Hell of a lot of bang for the buck. Not too heavy, loud, direct out, reliable. I bought one for my son when he was 17, and I expect it will get him all the way though his college years.

    Do you want a combo or a head and a cab? How loud does it need to be? Do you play in a band? What syles do you play?

    im basically looking for a combo, i have just recently started into a band, with a basically unknown sound right now, but primeraly in the metal type area, i typically play blues, rock, and a tiny big of jazz or funk.
