I just got a 4x10 120W Crate speaker cabinet, and I'm looking for suggestions on a head for it. I'm looking for something that can get really loud and stay really clean, as I will be using pedals for most of my tone. That's mostly for rock. I'll also play jazz on it, in which case I probably won't use pedals. My jazz tone is fat and clean, with some reverb. So basically, I'm looking for something good for a 120W, that stays clean, and has some reverb too. I'm gonna try to stay under $500, but I'll consider going higher.

And if it helps, for rock I'm playing a Gibson explorer (with original hardware) through a Zoom multi-effect pedal, and for jazz I'm playing an Arbor archtop. I'll be relying heavily on the bridge pickup in both cases.

Mesa/Boogie Mark IV perhaps, but keep in mind, it is VERY loud, i can't seem to get the motherfocker quiet (except if you turn everything down, but that just ruins sound)
With that you can play about everything.

Peavey Valveking 100. Better yet, B-52 AT-100, for a hundred bucks more then your limit, definitely worth looking into.

how much higher would you go. for around 500 your option for all these features and kinda of limited. the 5150 has a crappy/decent clean. only used it once at my friend's house. if your budget can go higher like say around 800 then i would suggest a orange or the hughes and kettner switchblade which is what i have.

Oh yeah, and you can find good one at the massage parlor.
