Hey Good People, I'm looking for amp suggestions. I play with heavy picks and a crisp/tight right hand, my pickups are also high output. So I need an amp that can play clean and loud despite those facts, and also not get all ice-picky on top. Here are my requirements: 1. Must be able to play clean and loud- I'm talking about outdoor gigging volumes and still holding it together with clean tone. 2. Must have some kind of character or voice, some kind of vibe. I've heard this with Brunos and Tophats. I don't want a flat sounding amp. I want something that sounds alive and breathing, where you can hear the notes pumping as let them ring out...I don't want cardboard tone. 3. Must take pedals well 4. Must have that clean funk/jazz tone. I don't want midrangey growling rock n' roll clean. I know people have varying definitions of clean, but I mean clean- not kinda cleanish. Spanky. 5. I don't want an amp that when you turn it up it starts to get the midrangey 'rock' voice. Examples of this phenomenon include Bassmans and low power twins. 6. I'm on a budget so I'm focused on pre-owned amps 7. Must be a manageable weight for gigging musician carrying his own gear. I'm not trying to bust my ass every time I got a gig. Some amps come to mind. Let me tell you my thoughts on some of those (yes I know there are exceptions, of course) Boogies- yes they have headroom, but often have icepick highs and can be flat sounding on the top end. Blah Bruno- the clips sounding amazing. I used own a CT22 and it did the thing. It was very smooth and thick on the top end, and it had nice voice and vibe. It was too 'rocky' though because it was 22w. However, there's so much controversy about Bruno. His build quality, parts, service, etc... I'm kinda scared to dump my load into Bruno, but I may do it...Wondering if I'd need a Cowtipper 45 or 90? Fender- I'm a little leary of vintage stuff. I don't want to worry about cap jobs and reliability. So many of those old amps have been hacked up too. Twins are ridiculous to move- no way. If I found a good one with proper headroom, I'd buy it though. MeteorII- heard and played one a guitar show and thought it was really bright. Didn't thrill me, didn't like it. Could be worth another run though as I do have a local dealer. So I think I've done a good job explaining...what do you guys think? Am I waaaay too picky or what? Thanks!
