I have a 2x12 cab with Vintage 30's in it. I'm thinking about buying a Laney Lionheart amp. I'm just not sure if I want the head or combo. The head is 20 watts class a tube and the combo is 5 class a tube. The speaker in the combo is a celestion G12H. What do you think the difference in sound is? Would it be better to go for the combo?

I think the G12H is a bit smoother personally, better for classic rock etc. Vintage 30s are a bit more aggresive and can have a harsher top end, they are ideal for harder rock and metal (they'll do classic rock and cleans well though).

Edit: yeah i'd go for the head, sounds like a good cab and Vintage 30s are good speakers. 20 watts is a bit more versatile, the 5 watts will struggle to compete with drums.

Smoother/Warmer is good. Deffinately what I want. Think the 5 tube watts in the combo is enough for mic'ed small gigs?

Mic'ed yeah, it'll be enough. You'll probably have problems at practices and rehearsals though.

^ Aye, you'll have no clean headroom at all.
