    Any ideas? I want a combo clean platform for amazing EL84 clean sounds and fantastic reverb... 100% use at bedroom/low levels.

    Thanks!

    I have a UG30 I'm thinking of selling. It's a 2x12 combo with reverb. The
    speakers are one V30 and one Greenback 25. I'm trying to think of a fair price for it. If interested, I'll give you more info.

    Kingsley isn't a bad option. I've owned an UG 15, played UG 30's and a Kingsley D30 (among others). The Kingsley isn't the same as the UG 30, but is in the right area code, has a great clean sound in it's own right, and has MUCH more versatility when it comes to volume control.
    Even the UG 15 was really loud, and by no means a bedroom amp.

    ... so far the Kingsley Deluxe 30 may be the way to go ;) ... I've been quite impressed by the vids of Jack Zuker on youtube.

    Goodsell seems also an attractive option!

    I would get a Badger 18 as it has great clean sounds, EL84s, power scaling and a good loop with which you could run a really reverb through like a Solemate or Mr springy. Badger 18 is from my perspective the perfect EL84 bedroom and studio amp.

    I know the Carr Mercury is EL-34 not EL-84 but still check it out.
