I've been looking around to try to find an answer, but i cant, so I was just wondering what you guys think.
Right now I have a mesa/boogie rect-o-verb 50 combo, which I am very pleased with. I am thinking of getting rid of it though.
I'm looking for a more versatile amp to play styles other than just rock with. I also was thinking of trying to downgrade in price, so that I could use the difference to buy some more toys with (like effects).
I am pleased with the rock sounds I get from my Mesa, though, and would still mainly play rock. I was wondering if there is any amp I can get for less money, be more versatile, and still play good rock with.
Just to be clear, I am very pleased with the distortion I can get from the amp. I haven't tried a distortion/overdrive pedal through it.
I may be dreaming, but I hope this can be done.
I was thinking like a fender hot rod deluxe or a peavey classic 50, both with a distortion pedal like a tubescreamer. I never tried any of these combos out, so I wanted some of your input/suggestions. Thanks.
edit: when I said "downsizing", I meant in price, not size/power of amp.
