head upgrade time :) help!?

ok guys ive had my marshall valvestate 100v head for about a year now and its served me pretty well (as i run my gt-6 through it) but as of late ive been fiddling with the head more than the gt-6 and the 100v just isnt to good in that department so i want something that will still hold the weight of my gt-6 but will also have some nice stuff for me to fiddle about with on the head and get some good tones nothing too pricey as im in college and that is raping me of alot of my cash but something i can enjoy and play with.....also anyne want a Marshall Valvestate 100V head?

Thanks Guys

Check out Laney's TT series. Judging by where you live, they're quite affordable.

Or that . But the TT series are more versatile, though the GH series rule when it comes to hard-hitting rock.

cant relli understand the point of 1chann.....clean sound = 1 chann......dist = 1 chann....1+1=2 chann....a clean chann will never sound good when distortion over it or vica versa

You can easily get both clean and dirty tones out of one channel. Just switch to the middle pickup, roll the volume back, and switch off the gainboost on the footswitch. You could also use a coil split to get less output, too. Depends on your pickups though.

Re: head upgrade time :) help!?

this is true...but let's say you're playing covers one night and you finish playing some Van Halen. The next song is supposed to be "I'll Be Alright Without You" by Journey. You can NOT get that good a sound by switching to the middle and rolling off the volume, you need a really wonderful clean channel. So far I'm in love with my Voodoo modded Peavey Classic 50 but in England that's not the most practical idea. I'd definately go with the 3 channel Laney .

I'm also gonna say you need two channels (well not necessarily need, but it's nice to have).

The only way i would ever play a single channel rig is if i had two single channel amps going into an a/b box. Other than that, dual channels is just more practical.
