Here's a little background - I'm 51, and I've been playinig since I was a kid. I gig every week, mostly Neo-soul, Funk, R&B, etc. Think everything from Al Greene to Prince to Usher to Outkast, etc. I average 10-12 gigs a month, more in the summer. I usually play either a PRS or a Strat, but sometimes bring my Dot or Joe Pass. I mention this because, since I'm a geezer that gigs a lot, portability is important Anyway, I've always gigged with "average" gear. My latest amps have been a DRRI, Blues Deluxe, and a Vox AD-50. In the last 4 months, both the Blues Deluxe and Vox have died on the gig. The Vox blew up last night. And it's not because of volume. We work smaller clubs, and I've never had the amps up more than 50%. So I'm ready to step up to better ("pro") gear, but I'm not really sure what I should be looking at. Coincedentally, I played an Egnater Tourmaster yesterday, and was blown away. Great cleans, nice grind, and "liquidy" sustain. The 4 channels on the Tourmaster is probably one more than I really need, but it would be cool to have. So basically, I need something that's going to be reliable, portable, and at least three channels. I need to keep the price under $2k including the cab, so I guess a Dumble is out of the question . Please help this geezer "catch up". Thanks!!!!
