I seriously need help from you all. It a nutshell, my Marshall 250DFX (2x12) was stolen from me. I need to rebuild and buy a new amp, because this little squier amp is cutting it. My Dad was laughing at me this morning when I plugged my Gibson LP Classic into it. Here are my questions: Should I go for a tube, hybrid, or back solid state this time around? What's the difference? Why the heck are combos just as expensive, if not more expensive than half stacks? I see the Marshall JVM410c (combo) going for $2,2300 while the Marshall JVM410H and 1960A or 1960B Half Stack are going for $2,330 at Guitar Center! What is it about combos that I've been noticing such a high price, that are close to stacks themselves? What's the difference between combos and stacks really? Would investing in a JVM be a good thing. I'm kind of in love with Marshalls, but I've heard good stuff about Fender and VOX. Ultimately, I love high gain! Not necessarily Wylde metal, but something good for break down, while still having bluesy sounds with awesome clean! Thanks a bunch!
