after careful consideration i think i have picked the Carvin Legacy to achieve my desired Becker/Friedman/Cacophony tone.

Carvin VL100 Head for $700. it also includes x4 Ruby EL34, x4 JJEL34s and 4 random assortment of preamp tubes.

BUT i want to run it through all the UGers first.

is there another amp i should check out before i buy it?

is the price good?

will it sound good run through a jackson dxmg mg w/ seymour dunacn JBs?

what pedals should i purchase along with the amp?
Oh, please, Jason's tone was ****e. It was bad standard overdrive.

Plus, you've already decided.
