first thing, I have a Laney vh100r which sells new for around 1000-1200. I have just replaced the tubes a second time. I was in my room jamin' with my self (I hope you like jammin' too) and I said to myself "what the .... is that horible noise". Then I realized it was my amp. Other than that amp I have been using a crate 15 watt amp either with a keeley moded metal zone or a digitech metal master (recently I have been using the dist chanell on my crate and using a mxr micro amp for the main gain, this combo sounds dirty and defined, I love it). I have never been more satisfied with my tone then when I run out of my cheapy crate amp into my 4x12 cab. (by the way this kinda pisses me off because I have used countless amps and have spent 1000 on my Laney plus re-tubing it) My problem is that its the crate is only 15 watts, which works for recording but not live. My question is: Is it possible to mod the amp to increase the wattage to around 200 watts. If possible, will it change the wonderfull tone and could I preform the mod myself. (I have a decent amount of experience wiring and soldering various guitar equipment). Please don't just tell me to try another amp because I have done that plenty of times. The only amp that I love more is a bogner and I don't have 5k for the combo. can I run it into a power amp like qsc or something?
