The 260TVP is without a doubt the better amp. TVP gives the headroom and feel of an actual tube amp and hangs in the mix even the best tube amps. Honestly I've had the HT tube amps and ID TVP and the TVP cuts the mix better hands down. I believe its because the TVP and that it's modeled after the Series One channels rather than the HTs channels. Go TVP 100%

Thank you for your advice. I have the ID30 TVP with the FS-10 footswitch. I think that the power is not enough for gigging live. The 260 or 60 TVP are a better option for me.

i own both the ID260 and the ID100 Head with the matching slant cab. i did a comparison thread on them, check it out. all I can say is, if you can afford to spend a bit more money, go for the head and cab.

The head and the cab are too loud for me and i have a small car for transporting all my guitar gear. I think i have to choose between the ID 60 TVP or the ID 260 TVP.

Go for the ID:60 head and get a Marshall MX212 or Blackstar HT212, both come with Seventy 80 speakers that come in the ID412 cabs so it should be perfect. Loud but portable.

Now i'm hesitating between the ID100 and the ID60 because it's the same price. I think i add a 2X12 Blackstar cab.

I eventually decided on the 260TVP and it really is outstanding!
It has EVERYTHING! you can get any sound you wish, and the stereo sound is just mind blowing!
The amp sounds and reacts like a tube amp and the tones are incredible.
