hey guys, what do u think is the best amp head for ac/dc style rock? not heavy metal, but more of a rock/classic rock sound. my price range is $1000 for the head + cab. i own a fender strat. i prefer all tube amp. i prefer new but i will go used. i was looking at the ceriatone plexi50. any suggestions for the best combination of amp head and cab?

ceriatone's are amazing, I'd go with a jcm 800 clone, but the plexi's are nice too.

Cab's I'd look into an avatar 2x12 or 4x12 with g12h30's in it. or greenbacks

a jcm 800 is a little too expensive for me. iwas probably gonna go with an avatar cab too. i'm thinking a 2x12 avatar cab = $400 plus a good head that could fit my price range. can u guys think of any amp heads?

oh and i forgot to mention that me and my band play gigs so i'm looking for at least a 50 watt tube head

EDIT: maybe 30 watts but im looking for an amp that i dont have to crank all the way

I still saythe Ceriatone and an Avatar cab.
But really
50 watts is a bit overkill if you're playing small gigs. If I were you I'd go for the lower wattage one, then you'd be able to crank I'd and get that sweet power tube saturation.

What you want is a plexi or any other plexi-style amp.

There's a Splawn Quickrod on eBay for $1000, which would be perfect.

If you could wait a bit longer for a cab, I think this would be your best option...

There is a JCM900 w/ a Carvin cab in the Orange Country area right now for $600 if you're willing to travel an hour or two.
