Sunn Amp

What kind of (preferably all tube) amp head should I purchase to go with my 1960 Marshall cab?

I've searched around on ebay and have been looking at a lot of lesser-known or no longer manufactured brands, such as Sunn, Sovtek, Musicman, etc.

I've also been looking at an Ibanez 2006 130watt Thermion head. The most important thing that I'm looking for is that the amp head be all tube and have a really nice distortion. I don't play heavy metal, but I am in a rock band and I want something that can give me that modern warm tube distortion - and I don't want to pay for name brands if at all possible. I know there are a lot of good amp heads out there that I probably don't even know about, but I just need information as to what I should be looking for. Thanks!

Oh, P.S., I play a PRS CE-22 with the factory Dragon II pickups (which I am considering changing out). My band plays sort of Rock/Prog. Rock/Alt Rock.

You are in a "good news/bad news" situation. The good news is that there are plenty of great tube amps available now. The bad news is that there are so many that it makes it hard to choose!

You need to take your guitar(s) with you and try out the amp(s) that you are interested in with it so you can see how they respond together. Most good music stores will allow you to check out an amp (used) over the weekend so you can try it out on a gig or at a practice session. The "Harmony Central" website has reviews of a lot of amplifiers, good and bad. You really need to try out a lot of different amps and see which one you like the best. Be sure the tubes in it are in good shape or the amp won't sound as good - this is VERY important - I just swapped out tubes on an amp and it made a HUGE difference in the tone. Try about 20 -30 different amps, read the reviews on Harmony Central, and then buy your amp. Happy hunting!
