well im starting to have gigs more frequently now.
and believe it or not im going out with a peavey vypyr 30 watt..

and yesterday i had to use it without a mic because they ran out of mics..
so i'm looking for a 112, or a 212, or MAYBE even a head&cab.

i like my tone dark, similar to the studio version of cliffs of dover by eric johnson.
my style is instrumental rock, lots of different notes.
not into any other type.
just instrumental rock.

my budget is $1200
i live in canada, ontario

suggest me!

possibly upgrade your peavey to it's slightly bigger brother... the 6505+ 112 combo. it's 60w are easily loud enough to gig with!

He's not playing metal here man, the 6505+ is a little too brutal for an Eric Johnson tone... I'd say that Egnater Renegade linked earlier might be a good start, really cool amps, maybe something like a used Mesa Mark III might even be a good choice. Though, I don't know about them being "dark."

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

There are several Traynors on the Toronto craigslist if that is close at all. There are several DSL/TSLs too. Egnator Renegade is a great amp.

so are these:

Someone mentioned a Mesa Mark III

Just my 2¢ any Egnater or Mesa eats any Marshall 24/7 365 for the style you're playing.

EDIT:
You might want to look at a Carvin V3 or V3M as well.
