I've been playing for about 2 years, using a Yamaha TRBX174 through a Rumble 25 8" combo amp. I just recently picked up a used Schecter Diamond Series Elite 5 at a great price. Me and my friends are starting a band, so I need something that packs more punch than my current practice amp. We will play mostly rock. I have a budget of roughly $800, but I could go over if needed. I want to stay away from a combo amp to avoid a full upgrade next time. Looking for a good, low price head hopefully below $300, but loud enough for a full band practice. The cabinet I'm set on at the moment is a Peavey PVH 2x12, at $500. Something similar to that quality but at a lower price would be good. If you have any ideas they would be much appreciated, as there is so much on the market and I'm overwhelmed.
