    I like all the Cameron-Friedman modded Marshall type tones. I'm looking for suggestions for a combo <50 watts 1x12 with this kinda sound. I know it's usually the 100 watt head for that, but I've always preferred a small combo that for rehearsals/practice, and run into a cab for bigger gigs.

    Something built well, and hopefully under $2K.

    Buy a Ceriatone Chupacabra or Yetti and stick it in a 2x12 from Avatar. I bet you could do that for well under $2,000.

    I listened to clips of Ceriatone and that's a similar tone I'm into. Any of them will do, but I want it in 1x12 combo. Don't wanna have to mod and build it into a cab. I need a combo for a small room.

    Look at a Valvetech VAC25 also. It'll get some great gain tones

    very hot rodded Marshall inspired
    i'm really, really loving mine!
    it has 2 voices for the clean channel (both awesome and completely different)
    and 2 voices for the gain channel (both awesome and very different)

    There's not much to say other than it sounds ******* amazing!
    i put an Eminence Man O War in it too which is like whipped cream & a cherry

    ..at least look it up. youtube & such
    I use humbuckers and a Jazzmaster with it

    Nik told me he could fit them into one of his 212 cabs...wouldn't be that much different than the price of a head from memory.

    The Yeti is a freakin killer amp. Classic yet brutal. Highly recommended.

    Mesa Royal Atlantic. Although it's a 2x12. Or for a thicker sound the Electra Dyne with a decent boost pedal.

    Get a Marshall 4010 and bypass V1b with a cathode cap, cheaper and better sounding, hell make it footswitchable.

    ha, that's the amp I used to use for gigs in the 90's. I'd run it into a 4x12 and sounded every bit as good as my 2204, and it should because it was the same amp. Wish I had it.

    That's what I'm looking for, but would like more versatility. The Splawn above sounds pretty interesting. I would like a loop.
