I have seen some awesome recommendations come out of similar posts so I am hoping you all will grace me with tour wisdom. Some of my favorite bands that are similar to my style are: Silverstein I the Mighty Four Year Strong Coheed Budget for amp head $750 All I have in my area for shopping is a poorer than usual Guitar Center. So I'm buying w/o trying:-/ I wanted a Mesa Stiletto ace head but can't find one. Amps I'm considering but reluctantly. Egnater Tweaker 40 or 88 Marshall JCM 2000 DSL 100 Mesa Express. I need channel switching and an effects loop. I am open to other options as well. What are your suggestions? I own a Peavey classic 50 I like the openness of the sound but the drive tone is not quite where I want to be. I have a generation 1 peavey xxx with el34s. The sound is right but muffled sounding no matter how I eq. I have a line 6 spider cab with h celestions and an egnater tour master 412. Thanks for your help.
