So, I’ve been thinking about buying a new head, possibly a new 2×12 cab, possibly switching up some speakers.. who knows. I’m sure you’ve been where I’m currently at. Nothing is ‘bad’ per se, but I feel like I need to shake things up a bit. I’ve been looking at Hiwatt.. or clone of Hiwatt (Reeves).. love Matchless amps. So I was curious what you guys would purchase for a next amp. I know that money is always an issue, but if it wasn’t.. what would that purchase be? Here are the results.
I thought it was interesting that Facebook fan page comments crushed the Twitter tweets as far as response numbers. That’s a first.

I would compare a Mesa Mk.V, Fryette Sig:X, and a vintage Tech21 Trademark 300. Then pick the one I liked best, and run it through AccuGroove cabs.Reply
