    Sansamp characters pedals do a great job for DI recording.

    I haven't used the AMT, but I've found the Ethos Clean to be really useful.

    I use AMT SS-11A with upgraded tubes and power supply as a DI recording tool. It sounds good. Never had a chance to compare it with SS-20 though.

    I had a Sans Amp Blonde. It sounded pretty great. Coming from someone with old Fender amps.

    Sure all kinds. This one peaks my interest at moment. Real full voltage tube driven Fender Twin box.

    A blast from the past. Not tube but you'd never know it by sounds it puts out.

    Tech21 gt2 as well as their Character series. Not tube but sound great.

    If you want tubes and can tolerate a half rack the old HK boxes are fantastic.

    Don't let name fool you, set those gain knobs about noon, clean and sparkly as you could want. Gain knob for each tube is brilliant, you can get clean, crunch, growling blues to full on 80's metal out of it. Or just run it clean and stack your other pedal in front and use it's real tubes and HK Red Box cab sim to take them direct. Even has built in 5w ss power amp you can drive a cab direct with.

    There's also Blackstars line of real tube pedals.
