    When it comes to amps, buy for tone.

    For some, volume is a large part of the tone equation.

    I mean it's a part of the equation for sure, but for my taste, it doesn't have to be extreme. I need/want enough volume to be heard, and enough headroom for a bit of dynamic if I want it, but I don't consider "being loud" to be part of my tone. I don't want to stomp all over the guitars, and bury the (usually un-mic'd at jam) kick drum.

    But again, I'll re-iterate -> The 2:90, judging from the one full band jam we've had so far, CAN still do that if you wanted to, if your cab is good.
