Hey everyone,

As the folks in the Post-Rock thread know, I've been spending the past month or so trying to sell my Classic 50, which is just too thin for practicing with my band, and get a new amp, and I finally have potential deals that I like. I'm looking at either a Fender Deville 410 combo or a 1970's Silverface Fender Bandmaster Head + 115 cabinet.

I'm in a post-hardcore/experimental band (think a heavier mathier Circa Survive) and I need something loud with lots of headroom that takes pedals well, since that's what I use for all my sounds.

Thoughts?

I'm just going off what I can get for around $400 on my local Craigslist

New contender: another Fender Deville, this time a 212. And the guy is throwing in two Celestion Classic 80 speakers.

DeVille 212. I have the 410 and wish I had gotten the 212. It just sounds nicer. I'd be concerned about headroom on the Bandmaster while the DeVille will be just fine.

Anybody for the Bandmaster?

EDIT: Never mind, it's sold. Bummer

Looks like my decision has been made for me. Any other thoughts?
