We often recommend the HM75's for folks in your circumstance.

If it were me, I'd probably go w/Retro 30's.

If you want to take your tone a little more in the classic Celestion tone direction (ie AC/DC VanHalen) then consider Invaders.

Hope this helps, please report back!

If ya give it a try, please post back & let us all know your results!
