help needed choosing amp - needs to be a good all-rounder

I've come down to three definite choices now, either:

a new: Hughes and Kettner 'warp 7' - Ive heard a demo, they sound cool, but its a transistor amp dammit!!!


a fairly decent second hand JCM model (pref. JCM800 and 1960straight cab)

what would you do??? It needs to be able to gig. and with the good fortune of being 16, I still live at home and we live in a detached house with double glazing (mwuhahahaha) therefore (provided my parents aren't in) volume is no object...

Or I might get a Marshall cab and buy any one of the heads (probably a 2nd hand JCM and/or the H&K)

By the way, this thread should have been started in the "Gear" section, not "Repairs".
