    Anyone have experiences with any their amps for classic rock to hard rock?

    I'm very pleased with the classic and hard rock tones of the JRT 9/15.
    Both output modes are good examples of how the tubes sound when pushed.
    IMO of course.

    RSA23 to the max!

    best rock for the buck. But beware- little headroom with humbuckers!

    I have played a lot of the amps (yes I am a dealer as well) but more like the hair club for men.. I have been playing Fred's amps for a long long time so I when I opened my online thing it was the first natural choice.
    The 23 and the 37 are both great amps for what you are looking for.
    the 9/15 and all the other 1-12 combos are great as well.

    9/15 for me. Depending on the size of venue you play the 23 and 37 would also be great. For me, a 9/15 head works great for everything I do. Need a bit more volume? Bring the 4ohm 4X10. Smaller gig bring the 1X12. The 9/15 dimed on the 6V6 side through a Two-Rock 1X12 is the best amp OD tone I own.

    i've heard great things about the RSA 23 and the JRT9/15 for rock. you should also definitely check out the EDT 13/29...amazing overdriven tones and a great pedal platform as well.

    LDW!

    Loves pedals and has all the cleans and gain you could ever want with the twist of a knob

    +! The LDW excells at rock tones, and all things in between! Wonderful cleans as well. One of my favorite amps.

    I must concur. I own an LDW and an RSA. The only thing better than either alone is using them both at the time. I put the LDW in class A and have a total of 40 of some of the best rock watts out there. The LDW is just a tad more versatile as the RSA's non-masterable(is that a word?)level must be good for your particular application.
    That being said I also own an SJT 10/20 1x12 combo. It also is capable of great rock tones,although with a somewhat different voice. I also liked the FTR 37 and the 9/15.

    I think depending on the wattage you are looking for the LDW offers the most available tones. Though I haven't played JJN but from what I've heard they seem to be more of 100 watt plexi users then a more versatile rock tone

    My FTR37 Kicks Butt! I am constantly amazed at how good it sound and also at how many D13s keep popping up for sale. I think I am about to get a 9/15 for around the house and small venues, but my FTR37 beats just about any amp in my house and studio (and thats alot), at least for my uses.
