So i find myself in a dilemma, and i says to myself "Self, make a new thread about it!" Here's the deal, my band is starting to gig out big time thanks to a stroke of luck. Good thing, right? The only problem is, my only form of amplification is a VERY beaten up Peavey TNT115. It gets the job done in TINY bars and clubs, but in the types of venues i'll be heading into (including and outdoor one) this POS ain't gonna cut it. SO, my question to you guys is which amp would you buy? The solid state new kid on the block that's guaranteed to run at 2ohms safely, or go for a QSC/Pre and get drowned out until i save up the cash for the pair. I'll be playing mostly a Lakland 55-01 (sometimes my might SKB3006) into two ACME Low B-2s(one B-2W). I play every style of music you can think of and all in one set haha. I like to have OD and tube-emulating capability similar to that of a Tech 21 Head (check soundclips on thier site). Thanks in advance for your thoughts And if you have some other suggestions int he price range feel free to let me know!
