Alright. As if there aren't enough amp suggestion posts. I recently got a gig playing for a very rock/punk female singer-songwriter. My 57 RI Goldtop is perfect for this, but unfortunately, my '75 Vibrolux w/ EL-84s isn't. I figure I've got three options: a) get a really good drive pedal and just go with what I've got b) get a really good drive pedal and a 2x12 ext. cab for more bottom c) get a new amp altogether. I swore I'd never play through Mesas again because I've just outgrown "that" sound... the fizzy, diode-clipping roar that is their trademark - but I'm thinking that might be a good direction to go in for this gig. Budget is around $1000 - $1200. I'm thinking that a good candidate would be a multi-channel, 30-50 watt head or 2x12 combo, with a decently gain-y drive channel and thick clean tone. The parts I'm playing require less of the Limp Bizkit-esque chug - it's more of a thick, overdriven tone that maintains articulation for picking patterns and things. If I had the $$$, /13 RSA23 or a Matchless C30 would be prime choices. Anyone have any suggestions of a used amp in the $1000 ballpark that can kind of pull of a similar vibe? Vox AC30CC was also suggested to me last night... ideas?
