Post Guitar Head question
My other post on drivers got to wide so I decided to start this more specific one also.

I am looking for a head (have no idea on price range yet) for a cab that I will build with my friend. I think I need something less than 50 watts. 50 seems to be a little much. Maybe 35 or something like that I think. I am finding lots of speakers in the 35watt range but I am finding no heads! Is there a company out there that makes them? All I see are 50 watts plus, and they all are $500+. The only small ones I find are combo's that cost a lot and have a crappy head and/or speaker. Someone please help me :(

Most heads are 100 or 50 watts or even 120 and 60.

BUT, a lot also can be switched from 100/50/25 watts like my Legacy head.

emeber that 100 watts isn't twice as loud as a 50 watt. It is louder but has more headroom. ;-)

maybe you should look into getting a preamp like the ADA MP-1 or the Marshall JMP1 and just get a small power amp for it...X :?

I'll probably end up with one of those little combo's. Just my friend and I are big do it yourselfers and we are looking into making it ourselves. And I don't want the low quality speaker they are gonna put in it. Idealy I want to build my own speaker with enclosure and buy a seperate head/amp. Do you know where I can get an amp from a combo system by itself? Like a referbished amp? That way I could build my own box with my own choice in speaker and use the referbished amp.
