Every Mesa head is awesome if you ask me. You can probably get a Dual Rec in that price range used and definitely a Single Rec or Rectoverb.

The Recto 2x12 is a great V30 cab. Orange amps worked...

50w tube through 4x12 is legit. I'd only use a full stack if I was in a d00m band or something and needed a wall of sound. I tend to prefer a smaller cab driven more forcefully by the same amount of...

I like DR DDT's with .65 for drop B. I use that set on both my Agile LP and my 27" scale 7-string (with a Circle K .73 for low F#). Nice tight tension. I hate floppy strings.
