    I have a friend that needs some help so he can get a gig. I'm going to buy him either of these for lounge gigs in Las Vegas. He plays funk, r&b and jazz. Which one would be better or is there something else for $400 that'll do the trick better until he gets on his feet ?

    Only reason the contour is that cheap is that they're discontinued. It's a far better amp than the TC, at the very least in terms of power.
