I am looking to buy a new or used all tube amp in the next 6 months. I was intrigued by Carvin's vintage16 due to the price and the ability to switch from 16 to 5 watts. However, I have seen some concerns regarding the tone of that amp. I am looking for a good all tube amp that I can play in my house and get the following tones: 1) a good clean tone, 2) a good stressed tube tone at lower volumes, and 3) (but least important) a second lead or distortion channel. I'd like to have reverb and an effects loop, but they are less important. I looked at the epiphone valve, but my concern is getting a good loud clean tone with that amp without losing its fairly nice stressed tube tone. What else should I look at? What are your concerns or thoughts with Carvin? What else should I think about? BTW I mainly play Texas blues with some rock on my electric. Thanks!!!
