Well guys... I finally broke down and bought a big amp. I got the Cyclops which is the Redline Stereo 600 head in a 1x15, 2x8 + horn combo. Before that I played through a GK RCB 200 with a line out going into a Peavey Century 200. (GK played through a 2x8 cab and the Peavy through a 1x15) Kinda weird that I found the same combination in a combo amp. Let me just say that it is sooo nice to be able to turn it way up with hardly any distortion. My walls are rattling before it gets muddy. I put those old amps up for sale on ebay, but I have to admit curiosity and will probably go down to guitar center to check... Could I have stayed clean at higher volumes with a much better cab? But anyways, with regard to this Cyclops... It's the best that I have owned or played through hands down. Great lows, great punch (when I want it) and I love the footswitch selectable EQ.
