Post subject:  Looking for advice on a head and cab

Hi all I'm looking for some advice for a setup that can be used for live gigs (outside maybe 600 people) as well as home to practice. I'm thinking valve but not opposed to electronic. Not looking for a combo but separate head and cab and something that wont break the bank. At the moment I have a 200W Peavey Max112 combo but I'd like something bigger and am after suggestions and should I steer clear of well known brands made in Asia and only look for ones made in UK or USA.

Thanks Grant

Budget and genre? Do you have other constraints; e.g., size/weight?

For me, Barefaced and Audiokinesis killed my cab GAS completely, but they're not cheap, and they're scarce on the used market.

I found that for amps, however, the biggest and baddest don't make me any happier than something simple and relatively neutral. I have a Traynor YBA-200 and a Genz Benz Shuttle 9.2, each of which I scored used for about $400.

I personally don't worry about country of manufacture, but focus on the reputation of the brand.

Btw, if you like your Peavey, they make both tube and class-d heads that are well regarded and relatively inexpensive. I don't know about their cabs, though.

Im thinking maybe a budget of around $1500 Australian. I'll look here for used and even if I find the head I'm happy to wait for the right cab to come along. Im not into heavy metal stuff of Disco but love Rock & Roll, easy rock, rockabilly, most stuff from Beatles, Eagles, Roy Orbison, Elvis, ub40, matchbox20, black keys, santana, joe cocker, type stuff and not worried about size/weight.
