    I really like both of these amps. Wondering how good the cleans are on the Royal vs the C12?

    Both very good amps, but the Reeves will hold it's value better,
    very popular amp.

    Never used a reeves so I cannot comment on that, I dont even know what they sound like. But if you play a club royale, you will get super laid and sound like a ******** champ.

    They trend to be fairly available used and you can use the value drop to your advantage. The solid state rectified models have a little more headroom and you can drop in a 12ay7 for even more.

    What kind of cleans are you after? They are no less voxy than a vox, but do the 18 watt marshall thing, also. Plus a little fender in there I'm told.
