What would you use?
There are too many heads to choose from and I have no idea which direction to go.
I have a 2x15 Mesa Cabinet, rated at 800watts, either 4ohms mono or 8 ohms bi-amped/stereo.
For years I used a Trace Elliot 250 watt/GP7 head, and it has been a great amp, but it has its obvious limitations.
I'm curious about the Orange and Ampeg PF heads, but not sure if I should stick with the ol' Trace Elliots.
Plus there is the whole issue of tube vs. solid state...
Most likely, the cabinet and amp will be used for practice, since I don't really need to bring the beast to small venues. On the rare occasion I may need to crank it up, but with the current group, that's not critical. But, it would be nice to power match the cabinet a bit better than only putting 100 potential watts per channel into it, vs. its 400 max rating.
Any suggestions?!? I did see a used TE 1000 watt GP7 over in the classifieds....
