I have decided to splurge and buy something worth while, and I need a nice 1x12 (or anything easier to carry around), that is versatile in all senses of the word (volume, size, and tone). Amps I was looking at are: orange rocker 30, vht super 30 or pittbull 45, mesa f-50, rivera chubster, zinky blue velvet or the valvetechs. I would like to keep it under 1000$. Tone wise, it needs to be able to do the jazz thing all the way to modern distortion, and do them well. For distortion I generally like smooth vocal-like leads, and thick, big distortion with good note defintion. I hate, fizzy, buzzy, and grainy tones.
