    south of Chicago
    Current Setup:

    MIJ 70's LP
    MXR CAE clean boost
    Peavey VTM 60
    Crate Blue Voodoo cab(w/o the celestions)

    Where I play: Basement-I want the watts, I do crank the VTM a couple of times per week just to push some air.

    What I play: Blues/Hard Rock and I do actually quite enjoy metal riffs, but don't care much for lightning solos.

    What I'm looking for: I'm not really sure, I know I'd like to invest some money in upgrading my rig. I'm not sure if a new amp is the right way to go, or if I should get a better speaker cabinet first. I'd like to get a really nice, full, creamy blues tone(gary moore) and also be able to punch the gain and hit the stratosphere with an epic riff.

    Price range: 800-1600us is doable for me.

    Products that've caught my eye: Laney Ironheart 60 (head or combo)
    Marshall JVM (head or combo)
    Peavey Butcher
    Budda Superdrive 30

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've you need more info, just ask.
