    A good Princeton Non-Reverb is the next step up from a Champ and has been my go-to for the past year. Classic Fender cleans, stays clean up to 6-8 depending on gtr/tubes, etc. Add a good spring verb or Fender unit to it if needed, but I think the NR circuit is underrated. Great pedal platform too.

    The one you turn the "Volume" knob down on.

    More than enough.

    But won't you feel bad when the Pro Jr V comes out ?
    Kidding. Buy a real Fender, like a silverface Princeton Reverb.
    Or a used boutique clone.

    How about an '80's Super Champ? It's got reverb and overdrive plus 18 watts for your clean requirements.
    They're not cheap, but very reliable and if bought at the right price, you'll not lose money when its time to sell.

    I’m picking up a silver face 70’s Vibro Champ next week. 6w is still pretty loud. Set the amp at the crunch you like and then roll off the volume on the guitar until it cleans up.

    I am also considering a 65 Princeton Reissue.
