I'm am currently looking to build a preamp/poweramp setup. I like a warm deep(kind of vintagish) tone for the most part,but would like to be able to get something really...ballsy also. Sometimes a bit of overdrive would be nice but the clean tone is my main concern. I am new to this sort of thing so any suggestions on a good preamp or power amp or a good combination? I will soon be aquiring an Ibanez btb775 that you should take into consideration on the tone part. I've always loved the btb series for their looks and playability and the tone I've gotten from the recent ones makes me feel happy inside. EDIT: I am currently running through a (discontinued)peavey tvx412,450 watts at 4 ohms. But will probably be picking up a 1x15 neo and a 2x10 to go with this setup. Not totally sure on the exact cabs but those are the speaker configurations I've been looking at.
