:smile: Howdy fellow Jerry pickers. Just wondering what anyone would recommend as an affordable alternative to a Mcintosh. I'm using a Hughes and Kettner Blues Master, Alesis Nanoverb and a Hard Trucker JG1 with 2 E120s. I'm working on the FX loop logistics too... Thanks!

Agree with the wise TJ.

The MV-962 is a most worthy piece of equipment. I have one I use as my backup or as a more portable rig. Others dig the Rocktron Velocity series of amps.

I agree with TJ - the MV962 is a good alternative. I use a Mac MC2100 but keep the MOSValve around for a backup. My Mac blew up at my last gig and I pressed the 962 into service and it was fine. I like the Mac better but I think I paid $135 for the 962.
