Dear UG, I think that it's about time to upgrade from my MG100HDFX to some tubes!

Here's my situation:
-I currently have $600, but I'm willing to save up more.
-I'd like to have it gigable, but the venues would probably not exceed the size of a school auditorium. So, about 30 watts, of tube that is.
-I play rock, stuff like Muse, the Mars Volta, At the Drive-in, RATM, that sort of spiel. Very rarely do I cross into the metal territory, but if I do, it's only for a Chevelle type of sound.
-Cleans are important too, I also enjoy my ska
-2 channels would be nice, 3 would be spectacular, 1 would be pushing it...
-I'm looking more into a combo, but I'll consider a half-cab if necessary (eww MG cabs )

I've tried the Peavy Classic 30 for a few minutes, and I really liked what I heard
And I've also heard great things about the Palomino, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet

So, what does UG think? Any other suggestions are welcome!
THANKS!

Traynor YCV50 is better than both those amps IMO. Just a little more expensive but you could get one for less than $600 used pretty easily.

thanks
Problem is, my local shops don't really carry many Traynor's, especially not the YCV50.

Yeah thats the problem with Traynors, they are hard to find. Worst case scenario is that you have to get a Palomino or classic. Pretty good worst case scenario I would say.

I'll say.
