Re: need a new amp...HELP!!!
The reason I am looking for a solid state amp is due to price. I love the sound of tubes but Even used ones on the bay go for more than I want to spend. I have heard a few tube amps that are what I am looking for in all aspects except that they don't have enough gain. I don't really want to have to use a pedal with the amp to get the tones I need. I need to be able to go from sparkly clean to full on straight from the bowels of hell distortion with only having to switch channels and not having to use a pedal as well. All the ones that seem to have the right amount of gain for my tastes are very expensive and way too loud, like 100 watts. I figure with a solid state amp I can get a decent amount of gain on the distortion channel and the price would be reasonable. I suppose I could always get a used tube preamp and then patch it into the back of my old peavey. Any comments on the Peavey Rockmaster preamps?
