    So, I want something that can cover a lot of ground. I play a lot of Blues/Rock. Some of my fav sounds are from Hendrix, Doyle Bramhall II,
    SRV, Eric Johnson(fav Lead Tone ever) , and Joe Bonamassa.

    The main Two I've been considering are a Metro Superbass Copy and the Monterey from Germino!!! But I'm open to any options. I know EJ is using a new Marshall plexi for his lead sound and it sounds amazing.

    Thanks!!

    I have the luck of being able to borrow a Custom By Cougar Cherokee, and it is an amazing amp. I immediately started to play AC/DC riffs when i plugged i HB guitar. Trying a strat neck pickup gave me an amazing Hendrix semi clean sound. A very dynamic amp as well responds at LEAST as good to you're playing as a truly great PLexi or Jtm45. Overall my opinion on this amp is that it gives all an old plexi could give but better, more mojo more shimmer to the tone. Now I need to save to buy one..

    Contact Tommy cougar here: www.custombycougar.com

    (Yes I only have Cougar amps, i have paid for all 5 as have all of Cuogars customers. Tommy makes my favorite amps in the world, prefer them over Komet, skrydstrup, Germino etc)

    Bruno Bulldog 45 with reverb.
    If you love vintage Marshall sounds with a little extra gain, a MUCH better clean tone, no ice pick and killer verb, this is the amp you want! NO MV though.

    to be honest i really don't want/need a master volume amp anyway, all the dirt will be handled by pedals. I'm mainly looking for a 100 watt amp as well.

    Reinhardt Vintage 50 or 100. No pesky fx loops or master volumes. You just turn it up and use the volume on your guitar to control the whole thing.

    I have not heard them, but the specs on the Cat 5's are pretty impressive.

    The Andrew is way cool!

    I've heard great reviews all around about the TopHat Emplexador.

    That would be my choice if I was going that route.

    The Emplexador is my fav. MV Marshall Clone, the Peacemaker is my fav. NMV clone, but an old Trem Marshall is a very nice amp if you can find one that is not modded and is affordable...
