    Which amp would work best at getting great clean sounds and also great overdrive sounds ala Robin Trower, Warren Haynes? I'm considering a Budda superdrive either 30, 45, or 80, a Bogner Shiva, a Bad Cat Hot Cat 30r, a THD Flexi 50. Iwant an amp that is easy to set and forget. I also need an amp with great sustain, punch, and articulation. Thanks.:dude

    maybe check out something along the lines of a jtm-45. the marshall RI's are great for the price (used) if you throw some kt-66's in them, but the germino's totally slay hard. bluesy fluid drive, beautiful cleans, and not too many knobs to screw with. very plug in and JAM type amp. the germino 45 or a used jtm-45 RI with a germino 2x12 gets my vote. killer.

    Guytron FV 100 listen to clips on the website all the recording parameters are detailed with no hidden effects or tweaks done to the amp. This amp does sound like the clips http://www.guytron.com/ go to the clips section. The only downer of the amp is it's not easy to tote around. I bought this amp after hearing it live then listening to the clips on the website, I have not been disappointed, in face I'm liking the amp more and more.

    Check Guitar Player's October issue in print or online- great review. A bit pricey, but who doesn't pay to play?!

    Best Clean and Warren Haynes in one box. Suhr CAA OD 100 hands down. I have pretty much owned almost every amp out there and the CAA OD 100 does the best at this.
