Okay, so. I've been trying to figure out what to do ampwise for a while now; and I haven't been able to find anything I'm really happy with. I'm thinking about just buying a direct box, some in-ear monitors, and calling it quits. What I currently have is: Epi T-610 Aguilar GS410 QSC Plx3002 Avalon U5 I'm using a Bongo for a bass. It's like I can never find a happy medium. I've roughly figured that, if I sold everything, I could come up with about $2300 or so. I'm going to college next year, and will have to get something to accomodate a dorm room (even if it's just a tascam or headphone amp). As far as musical stying, I play mostly rock. Kind of Oasis meets Led Zeppelin meets Coldplay if that makes sense. Along with that, I've been writing a substantial amount of solo material. I gig twice a week, and practice God knows how many times. As far as what I'm up against... (ugh) two Marshall half-stacks, and a Fender combo (the model escapes me). I'm thinking about either a combo or maybe a 112 stack. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as far as things to try out. The cheaper, the better really. Whatever money I save is going straight toward either a Valenti or a Sadowsky. This is my last resort.
