I have a Lonestar Special on the trading block and have been especially interested in the Stiletto Ace. I'm trying to move toward something a little more nasty & crunchy. Although I always like a little dirt on my sound, there are times when I need nice cleans. I've had some great clean amps over the years ('64 Bassman, '62 Deluxe, my current amp, etc.) and am not expecting that out of a set of EL-34s, but am wondering if the Ace can at least hang with the likes of those guys. At the moment I play mostly modern alternative and power pop-type stuff, so the crunch is the priority, but for side situations, I'm wondering if the Ace might compromise too much in the clean department. Right now I run the LSS with a DI Crunch Box to get into that zone, and am not sure whether it might be worth sticking with that rather that going with the Ace. I also have a potential Mark IV trade lined up but might be having doubts--I used to have a Mark IV years ago and the constant tweaking drove me nuts, but I might be better spot to deal with it now. Are there any others in the $1,500-and-under demo that I should look into for great cleans and Marshall crunch? Thanks.
