Well, little by little I'm upgrading my gear. First I bought a Fender Strat MIM (Had an American Tele, but didn't quite like Teles) and I upgraded it with new wires and a set of Fat Shop 50's. Then I sold my HD500 and bough a BCB-60 and 7 pedals, and recently changed the Boss SD-1 with a Ibanez TS-9. So now, my next step is the amplifier. I'm not in a rush, for the moment I have an Orange Crush PiX 35W and it is working perfectly, but I guess somewhen in the near future I'll want to change it. First of all: I want this amp for rehearsal (no mic' up the speaker) and for gigs (with mic' up the speaker), so it has to be loud enough for rehearsal with a drummer and a bass player (we play Pop/Rock/Indie so they're not really loud). So I've been looking around and I don't really know what to do. Let's say I have a budget of 600-700$ (around 500-600€), and I have a couple of things in mind. I like the Orange Crush CR60, just because I love my Orange 35W, how it looks and how it sounds (great clean tone), but the truth is that I have plenty of power with my current Crush 35W (and I mean it, I have PLENTY of power, the volume is at 4/12 and the gain at 9/12 and I'm louder than the bass player and the drummer), so I don't see the point in buying a new amp just because is bigger (with a 12' inch speaker instead of my current 10' speaker) when my current amp is loud enough. Then, the next question is, if I'm not getting a bigger solid-state amp just because my current one is good enough for me, should I get my first tube amp? After 10 years playing, maybe it's time... But they're SO expensive, and I'm worried about the tubes, I've seen the tubes aren't really expensive and I guess it'd be easy to replace them, but how long do they last? I've seen two tubes amp that I really like/love, the Fender Blues Junior III and the Vox AC15C1. They both have a 12' speaker and cost almost the same (Vox a 'lil bit more). I'm basically looking for a GREAT CLEAN TONE, only clean tone, and I think Fender is gonna be better for that, it doesn't have a dirty channel, but I'm worried (with both amps) that they're not going to be loud enough and I'm going to endanger the tubes/speaker when rehearsing. So I guess my question is: are 15W with these tubes amp enough for rehearsal? Also, the amp that I'll buy needs to have reverb, although most of them include this so I'm not worried about that. Sorry for such a long thread and forgive my english, I'm writing from Spain!
