I'm in need of a 2nd amp and am considering a combo. It has to be capable of getting over a hard hitting drummer and/or 2 guitarists, but also something I could play in a more mellow setting and have a focused, tight growl. I've been considering amps along the lines of a SWR Redhead, a Carvin combo, Mesa Boogie, or a David Eden combo. But I have never played through any of them and don't have a good opportunity to do so. My current rig is a Hartke 7000 with 2 Hartke 4 10's which is *not* pleasant to haul around, but has more headroom, tone, and low end than I could ever wish for. Perfect for one of my projects, not so for the other. Let me know what you've played through, what you recommend, most bang for the buck, etc.
