My other guitarist is looking for an amp to trade his Allan Encore head for... He's looking for something with 2 or 3 channels AND a solo boost. Good cleans are the #1 requirement, since we are more of a "country" band and a good crunch channel is 2nd on the list. But the solo boost is what's killing him in his search... Other than Mesa, there's not much out there? He doesn't want to use pedals, I've ran that by him already. **By solo boost, I mean a pure volume boost that doesn't change the tone or gain, not a gain boost or something that pushes the preamp** I've listed all the Mesa amps to him and he's using my Mark V, but it's a little out of his budget on that trade (and mine isn't going anywhere ). I'd like him to try a Lonestar and a Roadster, to see what he likes best.... But other than those 2 (Mesa) amps, what other amps are out there that would be in that trade value range (Probably $1000-$1300)? Preferably a head? Must be at least 30wts or more, preferably 50wts or more.
