Check out Nick’s at https://www.ceriatone.com/british-style-jtm45/
if it was me:
All the volume or lack of you want.
Add a strymon flint in the loop...
yaeh that's another great option.
Not a real JTM45 but it'll do that and much more.
I'm just bored and wanted to post pictures. LOL
Actually redplate does a JTMish amp with a super great master, and an FX loop...and a clean channel.
Called the Bluesmachine 66 I think?
This got some seriously great JTM tones when I was playing it.
If you can't crank 30 watts, you should move!
Get a JTM45 built with Metro Zero Loss FX Loop and use a pair of G12Ms to keep the volume down. If you want G12Hs then add a master volume. Or get a Ceriatone with Loop and master.
If you really want a hone use amp I’ll also through the Carr Mercury V into the suggestions here. No effects loop, but plenty of Marshallish tones, natural cranked amp feel and compression with the built in attenuator, and a dark and bright channel in series OR mixed like a jumped 4 input JTM or JMP.
Tone amps in Palmdale. They’re also on Facebook
Cream of the crop
That's a great amp, but more a jtm45/100. SS rectified and 100w.
Achilles Argos, or for something a bit different but with no loop Marshall Astoria Classic. Most JTM45 sounding out of the line of Astoria amps, but more refined and improved ie no flubby bass, good volume control, etc.
Gerrmino Classic 45
Hi Tone... Low Watt
Valvestorm JTM45 Kit.. Mustards/PEC. Kits probably $1400... x Valvestorm/Metro 0 Loss Effects Loop.. $75 more.. Probably $300-$400 to put together. Then you need tubes.
For reducing DBs… SPL Reducer.
Reamp/Effects Loop/Power Station
Another vote for Ceriatone. Add a Fryette Power Station 2 and you’re done.

Sold my JTM45 when I got an Origin 50 combo.
With good OD pedals I can get any tone I want.
It has gain and power reduction too.
Tone King Royalist 45 has power scaling that is supposed to be good. Like the DS it is JTM45-ish rather than a clone.
I have a Carol Ann amp that Alan made me a few years ago that is based on a JTM45. It is exceptional. It's KT66 powered and tube rectified. It has the normal treble, middle, bass controls, and a presence control. What makes this amp special is that is the interaction of a hot switch, a "Feel" control and a great master volume. The hot switch engages the second half of one of the preamp tubes to give an awesome boost that really drives the front end of the amp, pushing it into real tube derived overdrive. The "Feel" control I believe controls negative feedback, which will essentially influence the level of "sag" and the master volume is pretty self explanatory. The interaction of those three controls really are what make the amp so versatile at different gain levels and overall output levels with less compromise than I have experienced with any other amp. If you have any specific questions, shoot me a PM or I am sure Alan would be able to discuss this with you as well.
Wild card with some modifications?
I recently picked up a 50w Marshall Vintage Modern for not much money. The LDR channel is supposed to be almost exactly a JTM45 according to the guy who designed it. I like m8ne thus far.
That looks like a great amp!!
