I'm looking for an amp that can deliver smooth, fusion rock overdrive tones with the aid of a couple pedals, but still cleans up well with volume knob at gigging volumes. I've heard a good silverface 70's deluxe or a deluxe reissue with a speaker change can achieve this. My main question is will the deluxe hold up in a live situation. Can I hit it with a good overdrive pedal and still roll off the volume to get relatively clean sound, while playing medium to large clubs? I mean I'm thinking these days you don't need to go past 5 on volume anyways because your gonna be mic'd up everywhere you go. I don't need country clean, I just need cleanISH for funky stuff. I've been playing a modded fender twin for years and it sounds great, but it's too heavy, so I really just need a good 1x12 that will give me great (smooth) overdrive tones but is still loud enough to compete with band. I play lead guitar in a couple local jam bands so lead tone is paramount! If not deluxe, what's another rec? 1x12, pedal platform, smooth silky overdrive. I've owned a DR.Z maz 18 and didn't like it so that's out.
