Currently have an Ecstasy 101b. Unfortunately bills have caught up with me and I need to get rid of it. Besides the fact that I always wanted the red chan. to breathe, but could never achieve that. Played a Shiva recently and loved the tone, how powerful and aggressive it sounded. It was thru a Diezel 4x12 with an American Strat Single Coil. Is the reason the Shiva sounded so monstrous because of the cab? Was thinking if I went to the Shiva, what boost pedal would allow me to not miss the 3rd channel of the XTC? Is there another 3 channel amp with an amazing clean channel like the Shiva? Another slight option I was thinking of.. was maybe getting a Marshall JCM either 800 or 2000 and pairing it with a good Fender amp and a boost, but I hate lugging so much stuff around. Is this plausible or will my back hate me? If you're wondering what music I'm into, I love John Mayer and bands like Thursday, Thrice and Every Time I Die. Thank you for your time.
