    Just wondered if anyone has any experience of using a "Marshall" type 18w amp live with a tele please ?
    I'm looking for a clean/edge of breakup sort of sound - not too loud as our drummer now uses an electric kit.
    Another option would be a 36w 18w clone with power scaling.
    Thanks,
    Glenn.

    36 watt amps make a good bit of horesepower. 18 might be fine, especially if you are mic'd up into the mains.

    Even an 18 watter without a mastervolume or the powerscaling option might be too loud for what you're looking for. My Marshall 1974x has quite a bit of headroom and is too loud to be played cranked even through a 1x12 loaded with a greenback. My advice is to get something with powerscaling like the Reinhardt 18 or Suhr Badger or something with a good sounding mastervolume like the Maz Jr. If you decide to go with a more vintage design (i.e. no MV or PS), make sure to get an attenuator.
