How "heavy" is your heavy rock exactly?

Since you have an AX8 I'd get something with a decent fx loop so you have the option of running 4CM if you want to.

Not that heavy at all really. The heaviest would be Cult of Personality but yeah it would be handy to use the amp as a stage backline with the AX8 too.

Might even be possible in doing a trade towards the JP12.


That does look badass and from all accounts from previous owners here, sounds great. Only patches I use on the AX8 is a JCM800 or Friedman too. Might jus be a bit more than I need... :think: I’d have to pick a cab up as well.

I guess the Marshall DSL40C should work for you, or maybe the new DSL20CR if you want lighter than that.

Cheers for the replies. Had a good look at whats around but I don't think it will ever get any "real" use, whatever it is. I think my best bet is to get a 1 or 2x12 Mesa cab, Matrix power amp and a Sansamp pedal for if anything goes tits up. I like the look of the Friedman ASM speakers, but they're not cheap. At least with a cab I can use it with an amp if I ever feel the need. There, dither done.
