Cheapey Half Stack
Hi guys, basically I'm uprgrading from my Peavey Bandit 112 (it's beginning to smell of barbecued chicken when i play solos, and my other guitarist has a Crate 120 Watt, pure noise that could take out the Amazon, so the Bandit was struggling).........basically I ain't got a whole lot to spend. I'm looking at a Hughes & Kettner Matrix half stack, from what I've read it seems to have a serious sound, and the 4 channels is a serious bonus, but what's worrying me is it mightn't be much of a step up at all from the Bandit.
To that end I'm looking at a Peavey Valve King, the Bandit had a glorious sound, but any reviews of the Valve King i've seen have praised it's sound metal-wise...I'm more of a Led Zep/ hard rock kinda guy than a metaller, but I do play some grungey stuff as well, Nirvana/Soundgarden etc
The other option I was looking at was a Randall G3 150, it'd be a decent step up from Bandit, but I know nothing about Randalls. Cabs wise, if i got the Hughes and Kettner I can see myself going 4x12, but for the others I'm thinking 2x12.....
