I have a Roland Blues Cube Hot. It's a workhorse with lots of clean headroom and plenty of volume. Takes pedals like a dream. I live in the mountains of Colorado, three hours from any music store with a large pallette of amps to try. Long story short, I am in Grand Junction (three hours away from Steamboat) and across the street from a nice music store. I stopped in just before closing. They have my dream amp AND a broken in used Gibson LP studio. I have my gear here and they are open for trades plus cash. I have yet to play either the amp or the Gibson (the store opens back up tomorrow at 9) but would appreciate your thoughts before going in. My wife, bless her, has given me free reign to make purchases as long as a trade-in deal is made. The questions: 1. Does a Princeton Reverb 15 watt (12" speaker) have enough volume/clean headroom to play in a small gig? I have played one a few times and love its tone but am unsure about its ability to keep up with a drummer. I can always mic it, right? 2. My Epi Traditional Pro Plus is a very serviceable axe with '57s. Would it be a good trade for a $800 Gibson studio (unsure of year). It looks like it has street cred but I have to play it for a while. 3. Knowing that trades and purchases are part of our "journey," am I making rash decisions knowing that I have good stuff? If the items in question turn out to be less than I expect, I am happy to walk away. But I want a Gibson and a Princeton Reverb! Oh, and I brought an A/B pedal which I plan to use extensively tomorrow So....help?
