Hey all, My old 15w Peavey Rage 158 is dying. I think the speaker is fine, it's just a wiring issue or something, I have to keep it cranked up to 10 and on the dirty channel and it works fine, just have to control volume from the guitar. Anyway, I'm looking to buy a tube amp. I live in a new apartment that's fairly soundproof, but since you get your best tone out of tubes when they are cranked up (this isn't just a myth, right?), I'm thinking of buying a 5w amp head, like the Bugera G5 Infinium 5W Class-A, so that I crank it up and not blow my own ear drums. I don't know anything about amps, amp heads, or cabinets, so please tell me if this is a bad idea or if you have any good value 5w amp heads to recommend. My main questions are: 1) Do I need a cabinet or does the amp head have if its own speaker? (This seems like a stupid question, but I swear I've heard people saying you can play it without a cab but I could have easily misunderstood what they meant). 2) Can I use any cab with any amp head or are there like, ratings for cabs, that would mean I can't use a 5w amp with it or something? 3) Since my speaker in my Peavey seems fine, I've been thinking about taking it out and making my own cabinet with it for a bit of fun plus to save money. Is this possible? How hard is it? Any good, detailed YouTube videos or DIY guides?
