    hey guys,
    I'm looking for a 2x12 combo that has great clean channel and takes pedals well. It has to be fairly reliable as well. My budget is $1000 max. I dont care about a lead channel because I use OD pedals for that.

    I used to own a Hot Rod Deville 2x12 but it was always in the shop with problems so I got rid of it.

    the only one I can think of right now is a reissue Ampeg Reverberocket 2x12. It is discontinued so I will have to find one used.

    any thoughts?

    Where do you live? A silver face Pro Reverb would be good. As with all used items, the price will be a guessing game.

    If you don't care about weight, get a early-mid 70's Traynor YGL III. There should be a couple in Vancouver. You can get them for 400$. Trade out the speakers and you're golden.

    Kustom 72 Coupe. Great tremolo/vibrato,great headroom,and a master on both channels that works very well. I have the 36 and gig with it regularly playing country to hard rock.

    howdy neighbor,I just got a pro reverb off ebay and it's saweet.there's one at the L&M on Terminal Ave for $1299.00.It's a clean 68' drip edge,there asking a lot but I think it's worth it.they also have a 73' twin for $999.00.

    thanks for the heads up,

    is the '68 Pro a BF or Silverface? also, what is "drip edge"?

    it's a silverface but it's the first or second year sf and I believe it's still a bf circuit.the drip edge is an aluminum border that surrounds the grill and only came on 68' models,it looks really cool and makes the amp a little more collectible.
