My trusted old Valvestate is slowly getting some issues. That's ok it's getting on a bit, I bought it new in 92 or 93. The best part of it turned out to be the stereo effects loop that allows it to be used as a power amp and speakers for my boss GT-8. It is the Valvestate Mk 1 8280 2x12 combo. It seems that around that time there where a few other amps with a similar configuration. Others I know of is the Valvestate Mk1 8200 head, the Hughes and Kettner Attax 200 and the Roland jazz chorus JC 120 Sadly there doesn't seem to be no stereo combo's around any more except for the Jazz Chorus. I do not want to get the JC as it is too big and too expensive. And I'm not to eager to get a "new" 2nd hand of the Marshall or the HK because of their age they are probably prone to start developing the same problems as old faithfull. One option could be to get a stereo poweramp, something like the 2 x 20W or 40W and a 2x12 cab but then I would loose the compact set I have now. Does anybody here now of any newer combo's than the ones that I mentioned here? The main things I'm looking for are 2x12, stereo loop, and 40w to 80w. Don't really care for tube or solidstate. It doesn't have to be an EL-Cheapo on discount but I'm not a member of the Rockefeller clan either.
