Honestly -- the Vincent/Klon combo is hard to beat in my book. Carr amps has a real winner with that amp -- it is actually slightly smaller than a Rambler -- but man does it pack a wallop. I have gone through some very high end amps (like $2,500 is not high end), and the Vincent -- hands down is number one on my list (at least for my tastes). I have done a couple of gigs with the Vincent and Klon -- (small clubs) and I have not taken the Vincent off the 7 watt setting. Even on the 7 watt setting I can get beautiful cleans for R&B and screaming blues/rock tones for the Classic Rock stuff. Amp is a monster -- and the Vincent/Klon combo is off the charts (again, at least for my tastes).... and you control it all off the guitar pots to boot.
