Alright, i need a new amp.

I've narrowed it down to either:
-120W all tube Peavey Head w/ some cheap 4x12 cabinet...probably behringer
probably about $200 for amp head, and $100 for cab

-Discontinued Rocktron Taboo Twin for $200 at Guitar Center
$200, but in excellent condition, and i know it works

If you suggest, my price range is at most $300. I know it's low.

So any advice would help...

Also, i'm in a band (metal, metalcore,screamo), so if the distortion fits it...awesome. but i'll probably use my RP80 anyway

well, whatever you do, DON'T get the behringer cab. its atrocious. i'd say get the rocktron if volume isn't a concern. but if you are in a band or something, grab that peavey. you'll never find an all tube peavey for $200 again so grab it. then i'd recommend saving up for a descent cabinet. On eBay, there are tons of peavey 412ms cabinets that would go great with the peavey head. i got one for $200. here's one:


they have sheffield speakers and sound amazing for the price. definately save up another $100. thats the best advise i can give.

how much wattage would a EVJ put into a 4x12 stack if it's a 5w tube head?

5 watts. It's a 5 watt tube head, there won't be any magical extra watts appearing if you put a bigger cab under it.

Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
