I'm posting this in Amp Discussion as well- not sure which subforum it belongs in. I'm putting together a rack rig with a Peavey Rockmaster Preamp & Digitech GSP1101 fx processor, and am looking for a good solid poweramp. I've read nothing but good things about the old Mosvalves, but I can't decide if I want to go for the 982 (50w/side, 100 bridged mono), the 962 (80w/side, 160 mono), or the 942 (250w/side, 500 mono). It looks like I can find the 982s for about $220 used, 962s for about $150, and the 942s for about $340. I'd like to go with the 982 if I could, as it is only 1 rack space whereas the others are 2. Does anyone know if it would be enough power for clean headroom over a caveman drummer? If not, surely the 962 would be, right? If I'm going to be spending over $300, I'll just save for a Carvin TS100 or something. Thanks in advance to anyone who could answer my questions!
