Something sub-500 is about what I want to spend. 1x12 is my preffered configuration.With 12 watts you can go either ceramic or AlNiCo, so you have quite
a few variables or a blend if you wish.
The stock Vintage Purple, original Fanes, Weber Thames would all lean towards the classic Hiwatt tone or you can go for more jangle and chime
with a Weber Blue Dog or Celestion Blue.
Hard to say which cab configuration you'll like the best,
single 12, 2X10 or 2X12
What kind of budget do you have in mind?
