Ok, I know the perfect amp isn't out there, and if it is, I'm sure it's out of my price range. Here's where I'm at...I have an Epiphone Valve Junior I aquired through a trade that I use for practice, a B-52 AT 112 that I picked up at a ridiculously low price that doesn't get much use (I like the cleans a lot and the drive is great for a high gain situation, other than that not useable enough for my needs) and a Hot Rod Deluxe. The HRD is my main amp. I usually keep my OCD on and use my volume knob to change the amount of drive. I will occasionally use my Rat or boost my OCD with my MXR Distortion III. The various effects used with this are irrelevant to the help I need. At times I feel like my tone is wonderful, other times I feel like my tone isn't smooth enough. I rarely keep things clean, usually I will just roll back my volume knob and get cleanish. But I want to be able to go to shimmery clean if I want to. Here's what I've done. I changed the tubes in the HRD (which is a '96 MIA if that matters) to JJ/Tesla tubes in the pre and power amp. I just put in an Eminance Swamp Thang. I know speakers require a break in period, but I really didn't feel like it helped much at all. I've got mixed reviews on whether or not the Omega Mod would help me. I think I want more gain than it would provide. Also, the last few months it seems as though I haven't had as much clean head room. The OCD is the basic concept of drive I want, so I guess I'm looking for a cranked Marshally sound. I tried the Marshall Haze and liked both cleans and the drive channel, but I can't get consistently good reviews. If I like it that's the main thing, but when I hear so much negative I wonder if my ears were screwed up or if it would be a reliable amp (it did seem a little cheap on construction). Here's what I want and need: I want a combo amp (1x12, but I guess I can consider a head/cab unit, but I'm sure I don't want a 4x12 cab). At least 40 watts (I want plenty of clean head room). BTW, I mostly only play at a church. I want a classic rock drive sound for my main tone and would like it to come straight from the amp. I can use another drive pedal or boost to add to that or change it for other sounds. I need 2 channels (more is fine, but preferably independent controls for the channels). I need an effects loop. I don't care about any onboard effects like reverb or tremelo, but they don't hurt to have either. I need the channels to be switchable via a footswitch (I don't know that there are amps that can't do this, I just want to be clear). Here's what I'm willing to do: I will sell all my amps and go to just one. I will sell all my pedals and just keep my M13 to use for effects (as long as the amp has great drive). I will spend in the neighborhood of $1,500 (less is better, more makes me want to cry). I will gladly buy used to get a better deal. I don't live near a Guitar Center, but will be at one this weekend. Since I don't live near one I don't get to try a large variety of amps, I typically go off what I hear here, and on my few and far between trips I give those amps a try. I'd like to get in Guitar Center this weekend with a list of amps that meet these parameters and either walk out with something, or have a good idea of what I will want. I don't have to sell my other gear first, it'll just have to go in the near future so my wife doesn't kill me. Can you help me?
