Which way would you go? I tried both of these out and they both sounded fantastic in the store but, admittedly I don't crank amps in the store either. They seem to be very similar but, what do you guys think?
bassman. check out ebay for some nice bassman heads. They are cheaper than you may think. I think an older amp, even if you factor in the cost of a tune up, (recap, re tube, cleanup, three prong power cord) will be a better amp. Plus a head + cab is a versatile setup considering you can use different cabs for different situations. I'd rather carry two lighter items than one heavy one. Good luck.
