i wouldnt advise a half stack if youre playing club gigs
if its tube you re never gonna need all that volume so youre not gonna be able to drive it
solid state is just bad
and from experience lugging that **** around sucks sooooooo bad

valvetronix is the way to go for smaller gigs in my opinion.
of course, i will bite my own words when i get a half stack.
also, there IS the option of an OD pedal.


and amen. solid state sucks. like, it sucks so bad, its pretty much just an ugly ****. digital is icky.

the only good solid state i heard was an old peavy studio 112
that wasnt bad
valvetronix kick ass
laneys are quite nice too
its easy to get caught up in the half stack thing...
but in reality you're going to be miking the thing for bigger gigs so whats the point (other than some kind of guitar related penis extension)?

I own 2 amps a fender Ultimate Chorus amp with 365 Watts twin speakers and a Fender Jazz or Clean Tube amp 50 watt with the yellow tweed cover .
I love the Fender 50 watt Tube, it's 1 speaker but beautiful tone, I think this tube amp wil be a collectors 30 years fromn now.

Has anyone tried out the new Bugera valve amps? Are they reliable?

They sound like good value for money. I`m going to try and get down the music store soon and have a listen.

I recently got a genuine 60's WEM combo. Using that plus a Marshall stack for recording gives areally unique tone, plus it's amazing when used with guitars from the same era.
I've always said, don't knock it till you've tried it!

here's a good idea of what you can get in that price range.

personally i'd save up a bit and go for the warwick blue cab 30. i've been VERY impressed with my warwick sweet 15.
