    Define "affordable".
    Otherwise, Rocktron Velocity.

    Well you can find T100s for around 300. Also look for old Peavey Classics.

    Marshall 8008. Cheap as, and sounds pretty fucking good with my XT Pro.

    Plus, it weighs next to nothing and only takes up 1U, bonus!

    That Marshall 8008 does look pretty friggin nice, there's one on eBay not to far from me going for $150, and apparently it's working 100% so they say, my original choice was a Samson servo 260, only thing with the servo is that it's another 2 spaces on my rack that I'm going to have to compinsate for, I'll look into that Marshall!!!!!
