So I'm about to pull trigger on a two channel head. My eye is set on Friedman Runt 20. Mainly for tones, but because of the direct out /silent recording capability. Then I saw the Hughes and Kettner Tubemeister Deluxe 40. Same concept. Never tried the HK though. The price point of the HK is much more enticing, because I can get a cab or some new tubes... anyone have experiences with either of these two or compared them? Anyone else making a head like these with line out capability for under 1400? I use humbuckers and do mainly classic rock covers, etc.. use pedals too, but want the amp to do the work now. also want EL84 for British feeling gain. Not a fender or Vox guy either.
