So in another thread I've been looking at buying a used 5150/6505.
Many people are asking for 700+ in my area.
Looking around I see some Mesa Dual Rectifiers in the 800 dollar range. From my understanding it is a more versatile amp.
Would that perhaps be a better purchase to kill two birds with one stone? Hi gain and blues?
But when I look at popular blues amps I see many combos are often tossed around e.g. fender champ, hot rod deluxe , twin reverb etc).
Do people tend towards combos instead of head and stack?
I have about $1000 and was thinking $500 for a 5150 and $500 for some sort of fender combo like a hot rod deluxe for blues.
What advice would you guys give?
1) look for a head that does both (blues and high gain)?
2) look for two heads?
3) look for a head and a combo?
4) look for two combos (a 6505+112 is pretty affordable but most people here seem to be against that idea lol)?
Keeping in mind I am just a bedroom player and probably never going to do more than jam with friends.
Not sure if it matters but my other guitar is a strat copy with becky and bill keystones waiting to be installed.
