    this is just my 2 cents here, I was going to buy a Mojave and or a Blockhead, Rochefort (sic)
    but I just think there are cheaper ways to go to get that sound, with the Mojave you will need a Hotplate so that's extra $$ (I found the hotplate for $240 new) so your looking at close to $3g's after shipping etc etc.
    I'm going the Marshall route I'm trying a modded JCM 800 first, and if that doesn't work I'll sell it and try a JMP (after I change cabs and see if that was the problem) either way it's a helluva lot cheaper . But then again I'm assuming you want teh older VH tone and after I just babbled here it is your $$ you do what you want with it, you go girl !! I'll shut up now.

    Rol,
    Thanks for the advice..I allready have a hot plate.i will probably slave the amp to a seperate power amp,for volume cotrol.a good friend of mine has a modded 2203 jcm 800.it has an extra pre amp tube.the amp get the same amount of gain as a 5150.its an ok sounding amp,but is far from the early vh sound.you would be better of getting a reissue 100 watt plexi and have it modded.go talk to sphere at the plexi palace,he knows his shit.change the transformers,ad a cap at the v1 for more gain,and he can put a volume settup that he pattened into the amp that will give you the sound of the amp cranked,but at a tv volume level.the key is a low output pickup around 9k.The 2 closest amps i have heard nail that tone is the peacemaker and spheres plexi....

    The Blockhead Custom 50 is awesome. If anyone wants one, I just traded mine for a Blockhead 100 watt head. Can't wait to get the BH100...

    MY custom 50 is now on it's way to Solidbody Guitars in Minnesota. The owner has told me that it will go for cheap $$$$.

    It will be there on Tuesday or Wednesday. Get it while ya can!
