Hello, guys!Help me find information about the Guytone Ga 2200 amps, and where to buy it

an old friend of mine once found a 50s gibson GA77 ona curb and a late 60s blackface princeton non-reverb in a dumpster. I'm not suggesting you dumpster dive, I mean, why was he looking ina dumpster to begin with? We don't really talk anymore. But deals are out there, I've never paid market value for a 'vintage' amp. They're so ridiculous now that I'm more into building things if I want something.... but i hardly even play anymore.

Need help deciding on an amp: Doom Metal/Thrash Metal/Melo Death/Stoner Rock

the sound cities are wierd, a 200+ is a mk3 or mk4, active tone controls, very odd.... hard to get a sound from but POWERFUL, poweramp is hiwatty though. migs are good beginner amps, not worth mentioning here, pretty amrshally.... the Klipp is very well made, sabbath tones all day... Matamps vary, the recent UK ones not so well made, old ones very well made, US ones from before the change to Green and Black or whatever? very well amde, all somewhat different, depends what you're going for. Sleep used them, Sabbath always used Laney apart from Paranoid footage with oranges (matamps or modified knockoff matamps depending on era) and some footage from I think Swedish TV? on that show everyone used house gear, all oranges.... you can see Paul Kossoff using the same amp in the right footage. Matamps are weird, they have a very lofi (for a 100+ watt amp) cathodyne phase inverter (hiwatt used this in bigger amps but with a pentode driver, not a triode).... the sound city will use a hiwatt AC coupled fixed ias long tailed pair and the ohter amps are bassmans so they use the classic fender/marshall/vox long tailed pair for big amps, DC coupled, cathode bias. All very different feel and different power amp breakup. Hiwatt the inverter is very hifi like a macintosh hifi amp actually and it will add the least distortion at lower grunt levels getting very crispy and thumpy at high volume levels, the mig/klipp is medium and the matamp is going to breakup before the preamp drives itself and before the onset of actual power tube distortion, it will add color and even overt distortion before any other part of the amp reducing the effective clean wattage of the amp.
