Hi all. First post here on TGP... have done plenty of lurking and reading though for various subjects. Thought it would be a good place to post this question. I play in a cover band (anything from some 70's/80's through current... no hair metal type stuff but we'll juice up some older songs with a little more gain and whatnot) and I am admittedly a gear whore. I recently got the itch for gear again and I am thinking about amps. I primarily play a Les Paul and HSS Strat to cover just about all the sounds (have a Tele due in soon as well). I currently have an Orange Rockerverb 50 MKII 2x12 combo. I have found it is much easier to lug around a combo than a separate head/cab combo as I used to in the past and would like to stick with it if possible. If not, I would want a "micro" head and a standalone 2x12. I am dead set on tube amps. As far as I am concerned it's tube amp or no amp. Anyways, I have always dug JCM 800's and know there are quite a few variations and preferred models etc. and I am not all that well versed on them. I am also not sure if I am just bored/crazy and am perfectly fine just keeping the Orange. I am not looking for more gain or anything, but the 800 has a pretty classic sound to it. I have a local guy with an '83 Marshall JCM800 4212 combo (2x12) that is interested in trading for my Orange (plus extra on his end, obviously). Couple things I am not sure of - am I crazy to do this? If not so crazy, what would an appropriate value be on the 800? They seem to vary quite a bit. From what I have heard it is not modded, has new 6550 tubes within the last few years and was biased around the same time. How does the 4212 combo stack up against other combos, or against the standalone heads? I was at a local shop yesterday and played a Friedman Pink Taco and it had a pretty killer tone to it but I am a little concerned with it being only a single channel. It's only 20 watts but I mic up at gigs and 20w is plenty loud for where we play (even though my other guitarist plays a 100w Dual rec tremoverb). Sorry, getting sidetracked. TL;DR: Maybe getting bored with Rockerverb 50 combo, have offer for JCM800 4212 combo +extra... not sure if crazy for considering it.
