So my guitarist asked me to check into a couple options for a new amp for him. I've searched and searched and found a few things but not too many. His budget is around $1K. Prefers a head, as he will use a greenback loaded 4x12. He prefers new, but does get a GC employee discount. He's using an OCD, a Subdecay Liquid Sunshine, and a Diamond Memory Lane, so it must take pedals well. He plays Teles. So single coils need to sound AWESOME. He needs 2 channels. Good clean. Good crunch. Doesn't need over the top gain but JCM800 level. Preferably seperate EQ, or something of the sort. Music is along the veins of Jimmy Eat World/Foo Fighters. We've had the good fortune of playing/recording/owning several different amps. Mesa Dual Rec (2 Channel) - He liked it, just didn't mesh well with his tele to his ears. Marshall JMP 2203 - He really liked it, but it only has the one channel and the clean is meh... Hiwatt HiGain 50 - He's currently using this and it sounds pretty good, but it's mine and he wants his own amp (and I'm probably not selling the Hiwatt) Vox AC30 - We've used these in the studio and we've always been a fan of the clean tone but he'd prefer independent EQ for Clean and Dirty. Orange AD30 - This one was pretty cool and sounded awesome with Gibson style guitars but just didn't mesh well with the tele. Still a good sound, but not the ABSOLUTE best. So I guess I'm looking for vox cleans and marshall crunch. My initial thoughts are either EL84's or an EF86 channel... He'll be using this for gigs where he may be unmiked so 30W or so would be cool, more for clean headroom would be nice, but not required. Also, reliability is key as we hit the road for weeks at a time. So far the shortlist to check out: Orange AD30 (Gotta spend some more time with it) Budda SD30 (Shared EQ, but it kept coming up in the searches) Bogner Shiva (Probably FAR outside of his budget, but hell... it'd kickass) Mesa Lonestar (Also came up in the searches) Ceriatone DC30 copy Ceriatone 36W TMB with EF86 and master volume. Dr Z Maz 38 Vox AC50 Classic Plus Valtech Hayseed, maybe? So, what else? Thanks guys.
