you should buy some of my rack gear i'm selling... like my marshall jmp-1 and my peavey classic 50/50 tube poweramp.
it'll all fit in a little three space rack, it'll be just as good sounding as a nice tube top, but more flexibility and options, plus it'd be smaller than your average head.

otherwise, a couple good tube heads i'd say look into are the 5150, 5150 II and the crate blue voodoo's.

the randall is pretty nice. For cheap rack gear id say any digitech gsp series. for power amps that are cheap, i guess the alesis RA-100 or 300 would do.

if you don't have much to spend, get a head. Rack shit is expensive and that Randall will do fine for most stuff....

on another note, I might get a powerball soon

not all racks... a decent/good preamp+poweramp rack will cost about as much as a good/decent head...

my jmp-1 + classic 50/50 setup would be just as kick-assy(maybe more, not to mention more flexible) and just as loud as a marshall tube top. and would cost the same amount(if we're talking used of course)...

that's not even the cheapest rack rig you could get, ada mp-1's are even cheaper and almost as good imo... and you don't have to get a tube poweramp.

you and your damn engl's... save up and get the se, don't even bother with the powerball.

Yeah, MKI's too. I can buy a MKII used too, but I'de rather get the powerball because it suits my needs better.

the Triamp is great though if you want a reaaaally versatile amp and a lot of clear tones

Its a rough calculation since recent curency rates are not taken in account, but it aproaches it very well.

Hey def, doesn't that shop in Utrecht called "feedback" stock on a few Engls?
I'm dying to try that "engl" tone, but musikproduktiv in Germany is a long travel for me

Not really, a really good racksetup runs way more expensive!

I won't get an SE. I've tried it now, same with the Savage SE, it has too many options I don't need and the powerball does exactly what I want it too, brutal fucking tone. and nice tubey cleans, its more versatile then my savage or my rack, but its a shitload more expensive too.
The SE's are both more versatile but way above my budget, I don't want to spend 4000 bucks on a top. I mean I use it a lot too, I'de be afraid to hurt it or getting it stolen or something. A used powerball goes for about 1000 euro's here. not shabby, I've got a hook up on one now, If only I could sell my rack this weekend... then its mine.
