Hello all,, I need your suggestions,, after buying and selling numerous different amps over the years im finding myself coming to a point where not in the too far future I see myself downgrading for a bunch of reasons, mainly needs, space and especially a growing family. Currently I own a Mesa Boogie Stiletto Deuce and 4x12 cab along with a Peavey classic 50 2x12. I have decided that I am keeping the Peavey because its my 3rd classic 50 and if I sell it, I know I will want to get it again. I like it, never has any issues, suits my needs well and is simple to upkeep. On the other hand, my Stiletto is simply amazing, very reliable, easy upkeeping but is honostly way overkill for my needs and by no means small. Therefore the Mesa will be going. What im looking for is a high gain combo,, in the 35 watt range give or take some. I have a hard time considering an amp that doesnt have the ability to produce its own quality sounding overdrive/gain. I play mostly rock and metal,, nothing brutal like deathmetal and never mess with dropped D tunings. I also enjoy a nice clean sound and the blues. The most important tone factor for me with this amp is the ability for high gain,, think 80's metal at the most. Im not one who needs only boutique gear and im leaving my options open to pretty much anything that suits my needs tone wise and is reliable. I have and use a bunch of nice pedals,, both boutique and run of the mill stuff. I really dont want an amp which I will have to totally rely on pedals for its only gain and I dont care for an amp that must be cranked and shattering windows to get its sound. I really would like to keep this amp under $1500 new or used. For reference ive owned mesa rectoverb, Mark4, f50, peavey valveking, marshall jvm410. Sorry its so long,, and many thanks before hand for any suggestions you may have. THANKS.
