late 70s/early 80s hard rock/metal tones
I currently have a Vox AC4TV (4W, EL84, 12AX7) with a 1x12 speaker cab (16 ohm Celestion VX speaker).
It's good for chimey sounds and has a pretty decent overdriven crunch.
What I'm curious about is what folks would recommend I do (in the $200-600 range) if I'm looking to get into late 70s early 80s rock/metal ACDC to Def Leppard range of crunch?
Do I go for the Orange Tiny Terror? It has EL84s. Would that be duplicative given what I have? Or is that circuit going to take me in a whole different direction? Maybe some low end Marshall head? Or Would I be better off going with a new speaker cabinet instead? Or should I be looking at pedals instead? All I have atm is an MXR Dist+.
