I'm looking to get a new amp. I currently have a Trace GP7SM AH250...which I plan on keeping as a back-up. I've recently found the need for more power. One of the guitar players in my band got a new head (peavy 5150) which is insanely loud, and right next to me. The past couple shows we played I've found myself having a hard time cutting through. I still have some decent headroom with my current setup...but i don't want to push it too hard. I run 2 genz benz cabs- a 2x10, and a 15. Would better cabs or a different configuration help? I'm sticking with Trace Elliot. I don't really want anything else. I'm not a lover of ampegs, GKs, SWRs, etc..If I could find one or had the $ I'd get a V8, but that's not an option for me right now. I'd like to be in the $500 price range. So Any recomendations on TE heads that will give me more overall power & volume?? I could pick up a GP12 SMX rackmount for pretty cheap $399 - asking price...how much louder would this be than my current head? Also considering the V-Type 300H...any thoughts on this one?
