  • Which Jet City amp? Help me choose please.

    Recently, I've been set on getting the JCA50H along with a 2x12 cab. But, I've also been considering whether or not the 20 watt combo or head would suit me. I play in a classic and modern rock cover band. We play mostly medium size bars. Occasionally, I need to get a sound as heavy as Metallica or Tool. Mostly, I go for a VH type of sound for most of the stuff, with the occasional clean. Which amp do you think will suit my needs best?

    If you choose "something else", can you specific which amp?

      if you can get by with a single channel and no reverb id suggest the 20 watt head. if youve got a decent cab and arent playing stadiums youll be fine.

      i do wish mine had 2 channels, though.

          Are you sure that putting EL34's in the head won't mess it up in some way?

              Given the 3 choices, it's what I'd pick

              for $600~$700, there really aren't many other choices (if buying new) some egnater, maybe blackstar.. valveking, marshall MA serires and that's about it.

                  How much gain do these amps have?

                  I'm not a high gain guy, more like 80's VH, Ozzy, Gilbert, etc.

                  Can they do that or do they need a boost?

                  I really need to play one of these.

                          I thought the 50 watt combo doesn't have the lead channel?

                              Have you considered a used Marshall JCM800 combo?
