    Ashdown is very similar to Trace in tone if you must go new. But I'd look for a V4 or V6 head used. Those can be had for $400-$800 and the matching cabs go for a tad less, but I would try pairing a Trace head with a different kind of cab; I never have liked Trace cabs (or Ashdown for that matter).
