Currently I've been playing alot of small bars and my amp is too big for the places I'm playing and frankly it's a bitch lugging around a half stack. I'm currently using a Carvin X100b head thru a Marshall 4x12 cab. I'm considering either getting a matching 2x12 cab for the Carvin for around $250 or just getting a smaller amp for the smaller gigs. If I choose a smaller amp, I would have a budget of around $500. The music style I play boarders between hard rock and alternative rock so I don't need to get a brutal amp. I prefer tube amps above SS amps. Also I am using a Boss ME-70 floor processor, so I don't need modelling technology built into an amp. So what do you think, get the cab for slightly less gear in the van, or smaller amp for even less gear in the van? And if you choose smaller amp, could you possibly make a recomendation? thanks in advance!

You'd get better resulsts in Guitar Gear & Accessories, but I'd say a good combo would be the best answer in your situation.
