Sell your Vypyr and get a Vypyr Tube 60 combo, put some wheels on it and you're good to go. You won't have to spend much money, and you can use the amp for practicing or for gigs....

Looking at your list again, The Ironheart is a pretty good option IMO. I would definitely test it out. A TSL won't be any better, especially when you factor in price.

I've found that I can get a pretty wicked Pantera tone through a Rectifier. It's not exact, but it's within the ballpark. Metallica will sound pretty awesome too, even if the first couple albums...

I also played a DSL100 and found it to be more or less like the previous generations. Good amp to me.

I don't would recommend a JCA too. The twenty watt is a nice head, though I've heard that the 50watt head is actually easier to play quieter than the 20watt (if that's even a concern). I just know...

Get the HB 2X12. I play some stoner rock and they are fine in my Randall 2*12. The TH30 is a good head to use a fuzz with on the clean if it's distortion is not your thing.

^1 This

I would say the Dual Rec mode was the same. It didn't have the raw bite that a Rec has but it still sounds good. Like a smoothed out Dual Rectifier after being put through post-production

I have V30s in my 2x12 and I can get a nice sound at relatively low volumes with my JCA50. It's not whisper quiet but it's what I would deem quiet enough.

I really like V30s, and they would work nicely if you can play decently loud. V30s are a loud speakers and they need to be somewhat pushed before they come into their own. If that's not a problem...

I do like the Series One, but my problem is the price. It's a great Splawny type head, but a JCA is so good for so much less that I couldn't justify getting it unless I had a lot of money

The 50watt has become my main gigging amp and has surpassed the 1980 as my favorite. I put some JJs in it and it screams like a hotrodded Marshall with better low end. A $300 beast
