Fill in the blank ___________.
The Dr Z Maz 18 would seem to fit that bill. The version without reverb will break-up a little more...
The Reinhardt 18 can do smooth, nasty, clean... you name it.
Not to mention the customer service at Reinhardt Amps is freaking awesome.
Another obvious option is the Budda SD18. You absolutely can't beat it.
I was going to say the Reinhardt MI6 or the 36 watt titan.
Star GainStar 15
on the cheap side the Vox Nitetrain is pretty nice.
Budda Superdrive 18. I've got the handwired 30 and it hits the marks with flying colors. And the combos are surprisingly light!
Its like this...........SMF 15 WATTER.
TopHat Club Royale or Supreme 16
Goodsell Super 17 Mk111. Reverb, trem, 29 lbs. Sweet clean sound, great breakup. Can play loud or soft (a master volume that works).
Budda SD18. 2 channels, fx loop, tone for days.
I was thinking the same or a Matchless Lightning.
Without a doubt ... 65 Amps London (18 watts).
I've played a lot of these. So far my vote is for the Goodsell Super 17 as well.
I had an Overbuilt Napoleon Complex head that was an amazing little 18 watter. Very sweet breakup and crisp cleans via your guitar volume. Good volume and dynamics range, excellent reverb.... would probably snag that one again if I could...
Less common but very much worth checking out if you can: Sommatone Roaring 20. There are clips and a review of the 40 watt version on TGP Webzine to give you an idea.
I love...LOVE the Dr Z Maz Jr, but I wouldn't describe it as smooth and sweet.
I like the Tweed Deluxe for smoother breakup, or a Marshall 18 watter. They seem smoother in the breakup dept.
