Hello! Got some questions about tube amps. For a while I was planning on going the pre-amp/power amp route, but I'm thinking I might just bite the bullet, save up some cash, and invest in an all-tube amp. I'm curious about the different brands and models out there. I might also consider hybrids as well, but I want to try to narrow down some tube choices and see how it looks once I have an idea of how much they'll set me back. If it's just too much to bear financially, then I might consider some hybrids. So, my first question is what tube amps should I consider in the $750 and under range? Is it even possible to find a good one with that amount? I'd like something reliable, with nice ballsy, fat tone, but with good clarity, and that will hold it's own against two full 100watt guitar stacks and a very hard hitting drummer. So far I dig the tone that the Mastodon bassist uses. I also really like the tone in the song below. I think this bassist uses a Mesa 400+, so any info on that amp would be nice. Mystick Crewe of Clearlight - Swamp Jam (realplayer file, sorry) Also, if anyone can give some quick descriptions of the individual characteristics (reliability, tone, power, etc.) of the different tube amps I should check out, like Ampegs, Mesa, Sunn, Fender, etc., then I would be eternally grateful, as I'm pretty ignorant about tube amps and a search of the forum hasn't turned up much help. Oh yeah, and any hybrid-amp suggestions would be great too! Thanks!
