So I'm in search of a cheaper way to get a BlackFace Fender clean fix. I see tha Champs go for around $300 - 400 depending on condition, SF or BF, etc... 8" speaker sounds VERY small but you never know. I've been trying to replace my Gries 5 with something cheaper but I don't know if even a real Fender would come close. I've even considered some Ampeg's -- not many people talk about them, but I've heard pretty good things. In particular I want a lot of really nice, clean headroom in a home studio situation and an amp that can take pedals well. If it can get to edge of breakup that's killer too. Obviously I gravitate towards the BF but I'm open to other ideas. I found the 5 watts was just the smallest bit too low for clean headroom. If Dave made a 10 - 15 watter (for the same price I'd be all over it! For example, I love my new Vox AC15CC (15 watts) and my Winfield (30/18 watts) because I can get everything I need at lower volumes, but I KNOW that if gig time or jam time came, these would deliver. Maybe I'm asking for too much?
