    I play in a cover band and we do everything from Lit/Blink 182 type stuff to Stones and tons of 80's covers. I need an versatile amp, preferably with assignable reverb and access to good clean - mid gain - and hi gain tones.

    3 Channel Dual Rec with a reverb pedal didn't do it for me.
    Feel like I have tried everything...any testimonials or ideas?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    How bout a nice clean amp and a few pedals?

    Mod 50 would be another great choice.

    omega modded HRD gives a great smooth clean channel, into a good fat warm OD 1, which goes into a plexi-esque OD 2

    three VERY usable different channels!

    The Axe Fx is the logical choice for versatility and tones. Its the right tool for your needs.

    A used Koch Multitone would fit most of your req's without breaking the bank. It has reverb but isn't assignable. IIRC it has a footswitchable reverb, boost w/level control and footswitchable loop. I sold it for an ecstasy which is a very nice amp, but i would have been just as happy with the Koch for half the price... Try before you by as they say..

    Got my eye on the new Egnater Tourmaster head. Looks nice-seems well enough put together(in China) ,4 channels,lots of bells and whistles and sounds pretty good for the bit I got to play one. Bob

    Have to go with those on the Sig X bandwagon. Insanely versatile minus the reverb but that's a decent pedal away.

    I covered all that same guitar territory with a single-channel amp (VOX and Matchless) and several choice pedals. Here's the pedal lineup:

    From guitar >> fuzz, OD, Dist, Clean Boost, Chorus, Reverb, Delay >> amp.

    My experience with the multi-channel amps I've owned is that regardless of what channel your on, they pretty much sound the same. Pedals OTOH, can create way different tones.

    I've owned a bunch of muti chanel amps from 4 channels with modes to Midi controlled rack units. I've been having the most fun, versatility, and overall best tone with a Vox blended with another amp voiced to compliment running a bunch of different voiced OD pedals through them. Great tone and pretty much covers all the tones I want or need.

    Right now the amps I'm blending are a AC30HW and a FTR37.

    I use a Boogie MKIV in a classic rock cover band. Everything from Elvis to Ozzy. Works for me.

    I say you go out and get yourself a Mesa Boogie Triaxis. You'll NEVER need anything more, EVER!!! I love mine and will never be without it.
