I need a half stack now that my band is starting to play more and more gigs
, but I cant decide which one....
I play shred/vai, Yes(the band), led zeppelin, classic rock, but mostly shred/vai.
First amp that came to mind was marshall, but I did not like the sound of the new ones and I cant afford a vintage one. Then one day I was able to try out one of those Rhino YJM50 blackstar amps, which was amazing, seriously it sounds like a vintage marshall with built in noise gate, two overdrives(which sound vintage)and a power attenuator(spelling?). Really nice deal, everyone at harmony central likes it. I used a strat through it and I swear I got that Yngwie tone perfectly. You can see it here http://news.harmony-central.com/Newp/2002/YJM-50.html
oh it also has JJ telsa(is that it?)tubes, which I know is a perk cause I have them in my combo amp and they sound great.
The other amp is one of those carvin legacy amps, I like how it is 100 watts, but there is a switch for 50 watts and early clipping. I have not been able to play this one, but I like the sound samples, the clean sounds amazing. You can see it at http://www.carvin.com/cgi-bin/Isearc...2=VL412&P1=GAL
What do you think? They both look like great amps
