Question about Pre amp and power amp selection
Hello everyone...I am trying to see which power amp I should use in order to get an 80's metal tone. I am using an ADA MP-1 preamp...I have read that you should match an MP-1 with a solid state power amp...is that correct? I am trying to get an 80's metal tone here...whitesnake, poison, van halen, Dokken, you get the idea...If not, what Power amp should I match my ADA MP-1 with? I have played it through a Peavey classic 50/50 before and it was fine...but I am interested in hearing your guys' opinions about the difference between using my tube preamp with a solid state power amp or a tube power amp..Thanks in advance everyone.
