So I'm stepping back into the game here and getting a live rig. I have the option of getting an Ashdown ABM 500 EVO III or the CTM100 for only a few bucks more.
4 years ago I was playing a Mesa Big Block 750 with a 610 cabinet for loud rock music. We played stuff like Alien Ant Farm, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters.
I'll probably be doing similar stuff but I've never owned an all tube head and the CTM 100 is very intriguing. Do you guys think this would be loud enough in medium size venues in a loud rock band? Would the ABM500 be a better choice?
I'm also thinking about grabbing either the ABM 610 cab or 410 to pair up with either of these heads once I decide.
What's your opinions?
