    I love the sound of good single channel, non MV heads. 50 watts is usually perfect for me in a band environment and theres something about blasting an amp that most channel switchers don't do for me. anyone care to throw out your favorites, new or old, cheap or not?!

    Up to now my favorite has been a Komet Concorde.
    But I have a Red Iron T Rex shipping out today and from what I have heard it just might be my new favorite :RoCkIn

    Not quite 50W, but the Germino Club 40 is a pretty great piece of gear.
