The 9200 is a great power amp, but complete overkill for anything! I like the Randall RT2/50, and it is perfect for trying different valves too, so if you're not absolutely sure what you want to go for then that would give you the option to try out the sounds of 6L6s, 5881s, ELs etc etc,
i have considered peavey, yet everytime i search for them on evilbay all i get is models such as the PVxxxx which is more of a p.a poweramp? what models should i be looking for, ive been told 50/50's are great a few times now but 50/50 what? what is the model?
Peavey Classic Series 50/50. Here's a photo I found on the web:
I had one for a while and they are great power amps, especially given that you can pick them up cheap. I got rid of it purely because I wasn't using it much - I preferred the RT 2/50 and Mesa 2:90 that are in my main racks.
