I'm looking for a small 1x12 for clean/blues and was wondering what you guys recommend?
I've never played a combo except for a Classic 30, so my knowledge is very limited.
I don't need 2 channels, 1x12 would be nice, preferably under 500$ used.
The tones i am looking for are similar to the clean strat tones that were on the '07 Crossroads Festival.

absolutely I would recommend the fender deluxe reverb reissue. Can sound good clean or dirty... straight up or with pedals. A very classic, very useable sound.

Clean? A BF Princeton NON-reverb is very clean, and takes pedal very well if you want dirt, AND at a reasonable stage volume. A heavy handed drummer might be a problem, but one with finesse and you'd likely be in heaven! I wish I was gigging right now so I could use my 66 Princeton live. After all those years of being told to turn down, if I'd have had this amp, that would have NOT been a problem.

Maybe a Pro Junior with a BarbEQ in front of it set to "blackface" could suit your needs. Being only 15 watts you can crank these and get some nice breakup when needed.

That lil Peavey Classic 30 is bang for the buck a great little amp on the clean channel. I never used the gain channel on mine.

I too have a Classic 30... also like the Peavey ValveKing 112... 2 channels (if you change your mind and decide you want it) WITH SEPARATE TONE CONTROLS (very nice IMO).
