As listed above, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Herring, Derek Trucks, etc are some sounds that I really dig. They are very tube driven tones. Brad emailed back and suggested a tube power amp for that reason. Are you playing rhythm guitar through yours primarily? If playing lead/melody, do you still get a nice rich sound? I'm planning to shop around and figure out the specs I want and go from there so no real rush. As of now, I'm thinking that if I can get this Carvin Tube 100 for $350 I might do it.

To power this I picked up a Carvin Tube 100 off of eBay. I'm thinking of an Avatar 212 cab. I can't wait to get this up and running! I'll post some pics in a few weeks when it's up and running.
