Shit got weird last year and I sold my 5150. I felt a little disheartened about the way things were going, had to make some quick money, and since I saw little to no future in my music 'career' I sold anything pertaining to live use.
Things are looking up, but they're looking up a bit too fast I've started a new band with a few friends, it's casual at the moment but is fully intent on gigging by the summer and since cash is tight I just want an amp that sounds solid live.
I have a cab already lined up (1960b), but want a head that can do hard rock/metal on a tiny budget. I'm not ruling out solid state.
Style-wise it's more grungy than my main "band" (which is out-n-out metal, as well as almost non-existent at the moment ). This new stuff is going to be more like King's X, Alter Bridge, AIC etc. So I need something that can pass that off live and at rehearsal.
Valveking? Marshall Mode Four? (although not compatible with the 1960, right?) Other suggestions? Bugera even!?
Jet City JCA50H? Blackstar head of some sort? Laney?
