Hi all, I am debating moving away from combos. Heck, I'm debating moving away from tubes all together. I don't really want to, but I have been experiencing a lot of tube rattle, and can't really afford to keep burning through power tubes. Be that as it may, I've read that separating the tubes from the speaker can minimize this. My budget is kind of limited, right around a thousand CAD. The only new head /cab set up I could do would be the traynor dark horse. I've read good things. They come in at $599 I also have an opportunity to get a Hughes and kettner Tubemeister 18, used, for $400 This would give me a little more money for a cab. But at this point, I'm most likely limited to a 1x12,regardless of my choice. I should mention that I play clean mostly, or clean on the edge of breakup. I can get any OD/Distortion from my pedal. I like country , R&B, blues. That kinda thing. Any thoughts? Anybody have experience with either of these? Or both? Help!
