Hey guys. I've been a regular at the "effects, pedals, strings, and things" forum for a long time now. after many months and even more money, I now have awesome, versatile array of tones from a sweet pedalboard. I'm the kinda guy (rare I know) who actually can be satisfied with what he's got. Anyhow, now I've decided to move back to the basics (in theory, not in practice!). I'm currently using a Les Paul into a marshall AVT275, which is always on clean (I use pedals for distortion/OD). Even after cutting a lot of highs with my EQ pedal and the EQ on the amp, I still find my tone a little too bright (it sounds like a strat!) for my liking. The other guitar player in my band is an acoustic guy (who may use a tele if he ever goes electric), so we have to complement each other very well. here's a link to a song I played with my band last week (I'm doin guitar and keyboard duties, forgive my errors on the keyboard!). It may just be the recording, but I still think it's too trebly and bright. please only download the song once, as there are a limited number of downloads allowed. http://s39.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1P0X2RPZU83WS32224ZZ1Y2A7C In the outro, that's me playing the lower tones btw. The bassist goes into a lil improv thing high up on the neck. I'm a complete noob to amps (been playing for 9 1/2 years, though, so not a noob to the instrument). I'm looking for a really clean amp (no grit, lots of headroom) that can go really loud and has more balls than those dudes who overtook the hijackers on United Airlines flight 93. It's imperative that the amp have TONS of headroom. I can achieve grit or high-gain with some pedals I have, so getting it from an amp is unnecessary. Not to mention that my pedals will sound horrible if the amp starts to OD naturally. While the amp has to have a ton of balls, it's gotta still be crystal clear through the mix, so a bit of punch and sparkle is a must. In my limited knowledge of amps, I've been thinking of a Fender Twin Reverb, though I've also heard great things about the Roland JC-120. I'm looking to spend up to about 1700 dollars USD. Also, I'd prefer a combo, though if the sound was good enough I'd go for a half-stack. Anyone know of any amps that fit this mould that one could say "this is everything a twin reverb wishes it was and at night it goes home and weeps from the utter hopelessness of it all?"
