So I placed an order for an AxeFX-II XL and I'm curious:
Which power amp do you guys use for your AxeFx?
Difference(s) between SS and tube? Pros/Cons(is it the same difference as say, a tube head versus an SS head, in this application?)
My front runners are: Carvin DCM1540L(cheap, light, raved about), Matrix GTFX(same reasons as carvin) variant, or a Mesa 2:90(for tube warmth).
My tech told me if one is used to a tube sound, get a tube power amp, there is no substitute for that sound, so because of that, I'm leaning towards the Mesa.
I'll probably end up owning 2+ at a time, since they're all $600+/- or less, and generally easily flippable, but I'd just like to get some opinions. I'll probably be happy either way, and if I do miss true tube tone I could snag a 5150/6505+ for $500.
Thanks in advance gentleman.
I use a Carvin DCM200L (the 1U one) and I dig it. Drives the hell out of my Recto 4x12.
