Alright, I am getting ready to get a new rig (head and cabinet) and I know that I want tubes because I like the warmer sound. My style of play is more jazz, classic rock, etc. I do not play very much funk, while I may play a little of it I prefer the warmer, almost more double bass sound, I use nylons or flatwounds...just emphasizing the point. So what tube amps are in the 500-700 dollar range? Anything good at all? What do you guys recommend? I want as much power as possible, I want to be able to play in big auditoriums and outside, I am thinking probably something like 300 or more watts? Please help! My dad used to make speakers and what not. If I could show him a list of amp heads with their specifications he may be able to help me figure out what has more power...or what not. but please help me get started!
