I'll be sure to let you guys know, maybe some pics too biggrin.gif

But getting the amp will depend on how I have done on my exams. (I had to redo 4 of them because I had 4 unsufficiant ones) dry.gif . If I were to get the amp now, my mom would literally tear my head off laugh.gif

I also really think my gear choises through (made some really bad ones in the past sad.gif ), so I'll give it at least one other month of thinking things through.

But at the moment I'm thinking: ENGL Blackmore paired up with a 2x12 cab. Later I'll have my dad build me a custom one so it will be an inexpensive one (but with the right speakers) at first.
And for the attenuator I'll have to save my money. My mom and dad said they maybe would lend me the money since they don't wanna go deaf laugh.gif .

Blackmoore head + THD Hotplate would be a great choice. I've read a lot about THD and this would be my choice when I get one.

About the cab, Celestion is always a standard, and basically you can choose between three main voicings:

1. Vintage (G12-65)
2. Transparent (Vintage 30)
3. Modern (G12T-75)

All these speakers have power rating above 50W so 2 of them in 212 cab will complement the power rating of the head.
