Bogner Duende alternative?


I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a Bogner Duende alternative. Something that has a great 'Fender' clean channel and possibly a second channel similar to a 'Marshall'. Also has to be light weight and not super loud (not over 30 watts).

I may end up just getting a Duende but they are hard to find in my country and want to avoid huge shipping fees and taxes.



I've owned three Duendes (noticing your sig, I've also owned a Princeton Reverb and three Shivas). A 1x12 combo, a 1x10 combo, and a third I bought to flip for profit (and to make sure that my memory of what I liked and did not like about the Duende was correct). After playing the Duendes at home and at gigs, I ended up preferring a Princeton Reverb or Deluxe Reverb + pedals over the Duendes, and that is what I would suggest as an alternative. Do a search for "duende" on this forum, and you will find several threads where I have offered my opinions as to why.
