SS for the loud crowd?

My back is killing me... seriously...

I double on bass and guitar and the gear hauling is getting way too much. I am looking for a GUITAR ONLY set up that is lightweight and solid state. A simple clean platform is fine as I can layer on color/distortion/whatever with pedals.

Here's the catch though, I need to keep up with some jockeys sporting Mesa Dual Recto Heads and these screamingly loud 1x12 cabs.

Price isn't really an issue, so I was thinking about Acoustic Image + Redstone 1x12? Anything else I should be checking out that's high end and versatile as all get out?

I'd sure love to have the versatility and portability that I need to keep up with the jonses.

Oh... yeah yeah, I know, find new friends...go through the board...etc etc... let's take those off the table.

Seriously consider this:

Total weight of everything will be under 40lb. and your mesa tone will probably be far better then the Mesa Rectifiers on the same stage.

...and the best part? You can simply setup an SVT patch and use the same setup for your bass playing. (and of course you don't have to use it for bass...since i did read your capital letters statement, but it would work)

I wouldn't go with Acoustic Image stuff unless I wanted that kind of a jazz sound. It's not so great for your more common guitar tones IMO.

I saw a single 12 Pritchard fill up a good sized room with the Watts Knob turned almost off. With 180 Watts Peak Distorted Power it definitely can be heard cutting through. And if that is not enough, there is an Equalized Direct to go to the PA board via an XLR and mike cord. At 35 pounds and numerous great tones, what more could you want?

I'll trot my only SS rig out, a Crate Powerblock and 12" JBL G-125. I use it with the gain on a bit & a tube preamp but one can crank it up clean and use pedals. This little thing sounds pretty good, is small and can get very, very loud. The speaker is rated at 200 watts & 102 db efficiency.

I really have a problem buying that figure.
130+db coming from that little cab and covering the full guitar audio range, with a total weight of 22lbs.:omg:omgReally!?!?

Somebody must be selectively choosing the stats...maybe on axis at 400-1khz or something...I don't get it.
