I already have a tech 21 tm-10, which has worked out great for practicing, but I need a 1x12 combo for playing out and rehearsing. I need 2 channels, and the cleans need to have alot of headroom for jazz. Versatility is also important, and pedals are an option. Id like to keep the price under $700 (the cheaper the better). The SS amp I was looking closely at was the tech 21 tm-60, since the 10 watt has worked pretty well. The tube amps include the peavey classic 30 (used or new), which I will probally retube and put a new speaker in and the crate palomino/vintage series. It looks like its really a choice of functionality v.s. tone. Im stumped, Ive never owned a tube amp (unless you count a peavey 5150), so Im curious as to see what the fuss is about, but Im also concerned that the tube amps wont cover enough ground and will eventually need to be replaced. Any input? My idea was to maybe buy a tm-60, and return it if I dont like the way it sounds. On stage, I really don't think it will make that big of a difference tonewise to the audience, so I wonder if I should just take the tm-60 and run from this place.
