Ok, so I promised the lady no more guitars after bringing home a Victoria. So, being a man of my word :angel , I am on the hunt for another amp.... Which 1X12, 18 Watt combo has the most gain on tap, without sacrificing clean tone? (I don't need one with the tremelo channel; a TMB is preferable, or simply a volume and tone). I have tried Marshall and GDS. (The Marshall was a little noisy and the gain ended with AC/DC tones. The GDS didn't give up the goods until the volume was way up). Has anyone played the Gabriel 'Low Carb 18'? The new Reinhardt 18? (The feature sound good). Dabeck? What else is out there under $2000, giving this classic amp a modern twist?
