    ok hopefully this is the last old man question i have to ask in the near future.
    i screwed my back up- it wont be straightened back out for a while - if ever- and im in need of a 100 watt high gain head that doesnt weigh 60 pounds.
    i have a rivera m100 that i doubt i will ever part with and a tremoverb head that i bought for a backup and recording amp.that being said they are both too heavy for me to be gigging and practicing with for the next little while so the tremoverb is up for sale and i need to find a head that is 50 pounds or less.i play with an insanely loud drummer so less wattage is not an option.
    so the requirement are: 100 watts,high gain (modded marshall territory),tube and 50 pounds or less (could be a little heavier but would have to have more than 1 handle and be well balanced) .
    am i asking too much or is there something i've missed???

    i should also add that im not opposed to a rack setup but havent been able to put one together with those requirements.

    Get that Bruno LeadMan 100. If it's the one I owned, it's probably about 35lbs - not too heavy at all.

    i should have added that i need to try and keep it under 1500.00(the less the better) and used is ok.

    I may be way off, but what about the Crate powerblock thing? Just a thought!

    What does the VHT Deliverance weigh?

    <edit> Just checked - the 120w version is 47 pounds: http://vhtamp.com/
    Think these retail in your price range.

    The Soldano SLO is only 42 lbs and it's smaller than average size makes it pretty easy to lug around. I think it does the "modded marshall" thing pretty well.

    no love for the THD Flexi 50? its one LOUD 50 watter. small compact, and full of terrific high gain sickness.

    Incredible amp - though not as hi-gain as some others mentioned. Great suggestion.

    How about just slaving a lower wattage head into a lightweight SS power amp? An easy way to add volume without the weight.
