Hey guys, for the past 6 years i've been a bass player in a busy wedding band up here in Toronto. Due to circumstances (guitar player getting married and his wife doesn't want him playing anymore ... damn women!!!) ... i've been promoted (or possibly demoted depending how you look at it) to the guitar player. Luckily guitar was my first instrument and i have still continued to play over the past few years ... anyway, now that i have you yawning ... I'm looking for some opinions on a new combo amp. I play an American Standard Strat. I need a nice clean sound (to be aided with a bit or reverb and delay) for banging away chords and a nice sounding distortion. I would prefer a 2 channel amp for this where i can get both the clean and distortion from the amp. I'm really loving the clips i see of the 65 amps. The distortion sounds beautiful and is the exact sound i'm looking for, for distortion. I can't seem to find a good clip of it's clean sound, and when i do, it still sounds a bit 'grunty', which i cannot have for my clean. They have just put out an affordable 2 channel amp called the Ventura which again, love the gain, haven't heard the clean on it. I would love to keep the price under $2000, but if i have to, i will go up to $2500. Any opinions and your expertise is much appreciated guys. Thanks for your time!!
