.... Because without fail, I get totally stuck choosing between a few options and end up having to push myself to make a choice and usually end up making some sort of compromise. I know I can't be the only one that goes through the agony of the amp shopping process. Where I am at the moment; I had an Orange Micro Dark in which I just sold (The Micro Dark was my "compromise amp").. I learned a lot about what I really want from making that compromise. The Micro Terror turned out to be a fantastic choice for a pedal platform where I ran the amp clean and had stompboxes for the dirt, verb, etc. I guess what happened was, I realized that I didn't want to have a pedal board with two or three OD/distortion pedals on it. To me the gain on tap on the Micro Terror is just too "loose" to do much with. I desire something tight and focused with more gain. Classic hard rock/metal like Priest, Sabbath, etc etc but then being able to transition into a spanky clean Love Me Two Times jam smoothly in a pinch (which will likely mean a two channel amp). Mind you I'm probably over-thinking a lot of this. So I don't want a combo, being that I don't have a lot of space and I have an Orange 112 cab with V30 sitting here. Two channel head, preferably tubes on a budget, and has to be from Zzounds as they've given me the option of 12 month of payments with no credit check on gear costing $249 and up. First thought; Bugera... A lot of options, like the G20 for example, but then it's ehh well didn't exactly like the amp that sucker is a copy of, so why would I like that one? Moving on... Then there's the Mike Fortin designed Randall RD20... I dig it, except it's kind of too modern sounding Laney Ironheart 15? Looks good, versatile, but... Notorious for being biased cold, needs correcting before they sound decent.. Damn it! Stick with Orange maybe, the OR15 sounds good! Now we're getting a bit expensive and doesn't fit the criteria anyway... Ugh! Peavey 6505MH.. Definitely the right direction, but not cathode biased like the others, might be a pain down the road.. Doh.. There is the crazy war going on inside my head that will continue every waken hour until I can convince myself what I am going to for sure buy.... I'm NOT the only one that does this, right? RIGHT?
