I need an amp. My setup right now works great for going direct in, but I need a portable amp I can just grab and run with for jam sessions/rehearsals/etc. Problem is, I'm not sure what I should look for tone-wise. My current setup is
Squier CV Jazz (stock)-Wampler Ego Press-Way Huge Green Rhino (used occasionally)-Aguilar Tone Hammer DI/Preamp (always on, I never use the AGS though)-BBE Sonic Stomp-out to a direct box.
I can take a snapshot of my settings (it seems like they change every gig anyways), but I favor a very punchy sound (for my clean tone, the best example I can think of is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vk24UKKI4yY
Panic Station by Muse).
I'm hoping to not spend more than $500 at the end of the day, and I'm definetely looking to buy used if necessary. MF has the Acoustic B450 combos for $400, but they won't ship until April. The older generation of those amps seem to go for $250-$300 used. I've also considered the GK MB series. Any other ideas for amps I should look into?
