I decided not to go with the 120 watt Crate since it wasn't a big Marshall, AND because I want the tube sound, not preamp. I found a 30 watt Epiphone Electar at my local music store. It was used, I got it for only 289.00. I decided to go with this one because its all tube, 30 watts, cheap, AND I can do some mods to use it as a head rather than a combo. I'm getting it in 1-2 weeks, its on layaway now. Anyone ever use one of these?
