Posted this to amp forum and got zero responses, so I hope I have better luck here -
I wanted to ask for suggestions on a new or used head. I'm currently playing thru a Marshall Valvestate (1993) 100w head, and it's taking a crap on me. I used to be all about Marshall, but since I've updated my FX to a GSP rack, I have found that tubes and valves and even valve emulators tend to clash with the modeling from the rack, so I was looking for something just basic, solid state, prefer no FX (reverb ok), and maybe 2-channel, but definitely more interested in the clean channel being.. clean.
I'm not looking for a $2k head or anything, just local bar cover-band quality that can deliver good low and high end, and let me rack speak for itself.
I was looking online, but can't seem to factor out all the amps with built-in effects and valve technologies, so I figured I would ask here.
So, what's a good, solid, SS amp head out there?
Worth noting, I've been eyeing up the Ibanez TBX150H head online, so far that's the only one that I've found that seems to be fitting. Any opinions on this head?
