I'm looking for a low power head to be paired with either an ENGL 1x12 (V30s) or a Framus 2x12 (V30s).
Its mainly going to be used to track with but I would like the option to use it live etc.
The Blackstar hasn't got any buit in FX but the price is so low I can go buy some decent pedals or a rack FX if needed! And neither has the Egnater but again its cheaper than the Alchemist so FX is an affordable option!
What I am more interested in is the voicings, I'm playing a C7 (707s) with a Maxon OD808 (helps tame the grainy HF of the 707s) at the mo, tuned to Drop G. I'm looking for tight defined bass, rich growly low mids, smooth high mids and a open airy top end. I fooking hate Marshally grainy brittle high mids. I think my ideal amp ever would be an Uberschall (only going on the Bogner site clips mind you), to give an ideal of my "perfect tone".
I know Bulb has just reviewed two of these and I have read both, I'm just fishing for any other comments people might have to share...
On a stupid but sorta important question, the Bogner is the only one that won't fit on top a 1x12 so, that is also factoring in on my purchase decision, I don't really want a head bigger than the cab, seems a bit unstable. So has anyone used the Framus Cab and/or the ENGL? I'm not sure there will me much tone diff between them?
The only other options I'm considering is a) waiting for the 6505+ 1x12 combo or b) staying with my E530 Gmajor Velocity rig and buying a better power amp (tube) and ENGL 1x12.
just added a poll for fun!
