Just taking a simple poll as to what you have or currently/have in the past run live.
Out of your choices I would go Fender clean/ Marshall dirty, but for real world applications I would just get a classic Marshall and use the guitar volume to clean up.
I've never needed loud, pristine cleans and i dont enjoy switching to a clean that sounds/feels like a completely different amp, especially at a gig.
Mark V clean, Mark V dirty.
I'd use a Vox clean, Fender clean, and run something like a Carl MArtin Plexi. Choose a Vox pedal of your choice of dirt.
I like all of the choices! my real rig is an old Marshall with a small pedalboard in front so I guess I'd choose that if I need to. Or a vox/Marshall rig
I never run two amps @ a gig. Way too much bother considering we always have to also provide all the PA FOH and Monitors, etc.
So my preference is for a Tweed Deluxe set on edge of breakup (mic'd) and dirt pedals.
I like a tweed deluxe and vox style both on the edge of breakup to barrage the world with mids! Also, this is how I prefer to run stereo.
Was jamming on an ac30 today....awesome amp.
My favorite of those I own is an ac15 with od in front.
Marshall and Fenders are must have amps for me. Got to have both for my different styles of music (Zeppelin to SRV).
My Mesa Mark IIB kind of does both tones but different, but still good.
I'm a fender/dumble and Marshall guy for sure. When setup properly the options are endless.
I wouldn't run any of the options available, but if I had to, I would choose Vox/Marshall.
I've used a BF Fender inspired single channel amp with a Dumble ODS inspired channel switcher with good success.....both amps on all the time....pedals into the clean amp......straight into the channel switcher.....guitar signal split through a stereo chorus pedal.
Fender clean and fender dirty
I'm too old to carry two amps.
Fender clean and pedals for dirt.
SRV is quoted in an interview as saying he preferred Marhall's for cleans and Fender's for dirt. Always thought that was funny- of course he was talking about older models, and seriously cranking those babies.
Yep. SRV didn't use a lot of dirt. He used the Marshalls mostly for more volume when he played live.
This, but I tend to like 2 channel amps that give me Plexi and 800 tones.
I never run either amp all the way dirty, usually if there's any kind of dirt it's basically right before break up.
Usually if I'm using my humbucker guitar I notice that break up easily, but with my strat they stay nice and clean.
Pedals drive me further if need be.
What about Fender and Marshall both clean?
Marshall and roll off guitar volume for clean. But from your options Fender clean/Marshall dirty.
