    Ok guys, this should be fun. For your money, what is the most versatile head out there? Tone wise and volume wise.

    Thanks

    The most versatile head is no head.

    Probably some sort of Eden.

    MY guess is the WP-100 pre amp, but if that doesnt count as a head, then the WT-800.

    Haven't heard it myself, but the Warwick Quad VI looks promising.

    The Carvin R series heads are probably the most versatile in their price range.

  8. I have not tried a lot of heads in my day but i have found the Hartke 3500 (or any other Hartke with the graphic EQ) to be verstile. You can get a lot of tones from them heads.

    I forgot about that one.

    I got one used, and it gave me any tone I needed through all the changing trends untill I came up with one of my own that I really liked.

    Then it died.

    It was a killer head while it lasted though.
