    Im looking for pristine cleans on one side, on the other from medium to all out modern hard rock dirt.

    Here's what I'm looking at:
    Naylor duel38
    Orange Rocker30
    Dr.Z galaxie

    Add the Rivera Venus 6 to your short list.

    I have a buddy who has a Naylor Club 38 for the 90's before they were bought up and moved to dallas. It has a tremendous amount of "sag" very Rock N Roll. The cleans are very good (not as good as a Vibrolux or Plexi, IMO) and the Gain channel is Great (but not as good as an JCM800 although the Naylor is very Marshall-esq).

    The same buddy owned an Orange Rocker 30 Head and Orange 4x12. It had good cleans (no EQ just a natural knob for volume) and GREAT rock gain although it just isn't as organic as his JCM800, but close.

    I've tried the Galaxie but don't have extensive time with it... of what I remember it was a pretty nice rock amp.

    Have you tried a Decatone? They are spendy and a 100 watts but the clean channel is great and channel 2 is really nice... and you'd be surprised how quiet they are... just as quiet as the Naylor.

    Also have you tried a Marshall 2210? Its the 2 channel 800. The cleans are decent but the gain is phenomenal! This is also 100 watts but uber quiet for a 4x12, the one I had was much quieter than the Orange 30... due to the natural knob on the OR30 and where I liked the tone of it.

    Or you could get a plexi (50watt) or a Dr. Z single channel (like a Maz or Maz Jr.) and a great pedal to drive it. Thats more like the rockers used to do it anyway.

    Budda Superdrive 30 is worth considering as well.

    Great cleans...killer overdrive.

    I have to sell mine to fund a custom guitar purchase.
    My amp was modded by Bruce Zinky himself! (Added more bass and sparkling high end.)
    800. paypalled & shipped in ConUS
    Send me a PM if interested.

    Mesa Mark IV with 6V6s is around 40 watts and has incredible cleans, and rocks like a rectifier. The 6V6 is a smaller tube so the 90 watts is halved.

    I recently had a Zinky Blue Velvet loaned to me for a month while the owner went to Europe. Fits what you describe well & is a LOUD 25 watts!

    Would you be talking about the Bogner Alchemist?

    That's what I'm waiting for! With a daughter in college that's all I can afford .

    I'm SHOCKED no one has mentioned Fargen yet.


    I've seen a few of his Dual Channel classics in the Emporium

    Apparently CH.1 is a fendery clean and CH.2 is a JMP/Tweedy style distortion.

    channel 2 isn't modern hard rock level of gain as the OP wanted - and he didn't ask to use a pedal.

    It's also got a footswitchable boost for Ch. 2 and two switchable Master Volumes.

    Bogner Shiva....although that's at 60 watts...but it is 2 channel and flexible with great clean and rock tones.

    Don't really know anything about them, but the Reeves Templar Dragon might fit that description. Very affordable as well.
