I use Les Pauls and Strats. I hope to add a Tele soon, especially if I don't spend my entire $3400 budget on amps. Favorite artists/tones are The Jayhawks, Big Head Todd, David Grissom, Wilco, Son Volt, Ryan Adams, SRV, Black Crowes, AC/DC, Zep and Hendrix. I love Vox/Matchless chime/grind/OD and Marshalls cleans/OD. I also like a little delay at times. I primarily play at home, but I can crank it up a bit. As an example, an RSA23 wasn't too much of a problem, althought it was impossible to use when the kids were sleeping. Amps I have in mind include the folowing: * Komet 60: I would LOVE to own this amp, but I think it would completely over power my needs. * Matchless Clubman, Lightning or DC30. The Independence also looks interesting. I do like to crank the gain up on a regular basis, but I am not sure how effective the master volume is on this one. * 65 Amps Marquee. The London didn't have the clean headroom or sparkle I was looking for. * Marshall JVM410. I tried one and was extremely impressed. * Bad Cat Panther - love the tone Grissom gets (I know - he could get it with a cyber twin, but still..that tone!) * Germino Club 40. I owned one very briefly and recall liking it very much. * Vox AC30 Heritage edition or Custom Classic - I had a Custom Classic and liked it a lot. A Tele into a Klon into the AC30 was one of the very best tones I've ever heard. * Carr Vincent - the 7/33 watt power switch looks attractive. Not sure it has the lower mid girth I love. What else should I consider?? I am tired of shipping amps and want to find something to keep for a long time. I have a strong preference to buy used. Willies has a couple of used Matchless Lightning 210 combos in stock. I'd prefer to have a head and cab set up, but haven't seen a head for sale in a ong time. I'd love to hear your thoughts. I have tried many of the usual suspects (Shivas, Hot Cat 30, etc), but perhaps I've missed something.
