    Been craving a new amp lately, and have had a les paul gold top 60s tribute up for sale and now theres a buyer lined up.
    I think I'll miss the guitar.. so I'm not sure I'll actually end up going through.

    But I want an amp that does clean, my laney lionheart is great, but it doesn't do a clean tone that has depth. Love the warmth of it. But want some depth to the feel.

    I play with pedals a lot, and with that amp it works fantastic, but when I want clean there isn't a great clean. The p90 loaded guitars I have overdrive the amp fast.

    I play keith urban, john mayer, and brad paisley like music.
    I've played a drri briefly twice, and I think it would bridge my gap..
    What amp am I describing?

    You will need headroom - easiest way to get it is wattage in the 25 - 35 watt range. Paisley has bounced all around the VOX AC30 circuit block with clones and derivatives. Hard to go wrong there. There is a recent post about a rather extensive journey in the AC30 realm - worth a read.

    Can't go wrong with something Fender if you're looking for deep clean tones IMO, Vibroverbs and BF Deluxes come to mind for me

    Fender = Clean, by definition. :D
    and one of the cleanest Fenders s the Twin (if you can deal with the volume and weight).

    twins feel in line with voxes to me in terms of brightness though, for deep clean tones I've always felt the deluxe is the best bet

    I'll second everyone and recommend a BFDR or an AC30.
