A band has asked me to join them as lead guitarist for a short tour. For the past few years I've only played in the studio and the only amp I currently have is a Cornford Harlequin which, at 6 watts, is never gonna cut it live. So I'm looking for advice on a good roadworthy 2 channel vintage/mid gain amp (either head/cab or combo) priced at no more than $2500. The style of music is fairly classic 70s punk: Dolls, Heartbreakers, Joan Jett, etc. Although most venues will be mic'd, there's the possibility that some won't so whatever I get it'll need to be loud enough on its own to compete with a fairly loud (but not stupidly so) drummer and a bass player running into an old Ampeg stack. I'm sort of lost. I've had reliability issues in the past with the Marshalls I've used so would rather rather go for something with that classic Brit tone but with a more solid build quality (which I don't mind paying extra for). I'm edging towards a Head/Cab set up but will consider a combo if it's the right one. Some companies I've thought about are Mesa, Splawn, Bad Cat, and Cornford but I'm totally open to other suggestions. Please help!
