I'm looking for a "Class A" amp that matches up well with a Strat for clean and blues type distortion tones with all the classic cliche adjectives from this type of amp (chime, sparkle, bloom, swirl). I'm more intereted in the cleaner sounds and am not looking for ultra high gain. So I'm leaning towards the 9/15 but the 10/20 looks interesting too. I've read everything on the Forum about these amps, and I have listened to as many clips as I can find, but I won't have the chance to try before I buy. So here's a few questions: Does the low end on the 9/15 stay focused when cranked? Does the 6V6 side lean towards tweed, blackface, or something entirely new? Does the EL84 side lean towards the AC15? Are chime, sparkly, bloom, and swirl adjectives that you would use to describe the 9/15? For those who have owned or played both the 9/15 and the 10/20, which did you prefer and why? Which speaker(s) do you prefer with the 9/15? Will one Celestion Blue hold up OK or should I consider a 2x12? The Bad Cat Cub IIR has me interested too, but I have read that it gets flabby when cranked. The Cub II Clips that I have heard do not reflect this. But I keep coming back to the 9/15 sound clips posted in an old thread. Those tones really appeal to me.
