I'll second this about the PR12. I have one and have used it in those situations as well. I don't like to push it to edge of break-up, though. Mine starts to break up (with tele single coils) around 1pm on volume - I'm asked to turn down long before I reach that volume. Morgan's reverb is awesome with the added dwell control. As far as customer service, BAD seems to be servicing of new and recent production amps with a few exceptions which need Joe's attention. Any time I have attempted to contact Joe personally with questions about his amps, I have received a prompt response.
