I had to get rid of my Ecstasy because of my evolving situation with my future military career....in a nutshell, no more gigs, lots of travel, possible living situations where I can't play loudly...I just can't handle a 120watt head with less than wonderful master volume through a 4x12 anymore! Things I loved about the XTC are the blue channel, plexi channel, and honestly, I really loved the red channel as well. Clean channel was perfectly fine but not 'loved'. The master volume sucked...IMO of course, so I just played LOUD, which was better anyways! I loved the way that the amp captured the raw Marshall power but with a liquid feel to it....really cool, I thought of it as a massive waterfall, liquid but powerful. It completely fit my playing style to a T. As you can see....I really loved that amp but I'm trying, for once in my life, to be practical and not try to live the 80s metal excessive lifestyle hahaha. I am looking for a smaller (physical size) amp, price range $0.00 (if you want to donate!) up to $1700...really $1600 is the magic number but I've found being flexible really opens up the options. Wattage doesn't matter if it has a great master volume or power scaling....Hell, the extra oomph might be nice to have on tap for those moments I can open it up. Shiva comes to mind, which would be cool because I could keep some of that Bogner flavor that I like, but I haven't found anything under $1800, and it seems like the 1x12 combos get snatched up so fast I never even have a chance to express interest. If anyone hears of a Shiva 1x12 combo, let me know, I think that is my best bet right now....Maybe I can let loose once more and front a couple extra hundred... What other amps should I look at? I really do like having at least two channels....even though for home play its not at all necessary...I still can't wrap my mind around the idea of just 1 channel after having the 1.3 million buttons and switches on the XTC. I suppose that I would get used to it so I wont rule out 1 channel amps. I have always had a hankering for Suhr Badger. I have alot of interest in the Guytron GT20, but can't find much info, nor one to play. I've had my eye on Soultone's stuff but that is now beyond my price point...maybe once my salary kicks in and I pare down my loans. Regardless I'm gonna have a hard time transitioning from a monster amp to a more polite piece of kit, but such goes the ways of the world. Thanks!
