I'm getting frustrated so maybe I'm missing something out there. I got so very close recently with a 3rd Power Dream Plexi 50 but it was missing that big piano like clean and low end thump in the gain that's core to what I like. I noticed the Trannies weren't as big as some I've seen on say, some 50 watt Marshalls so maybe that was the issue but otherwise a great small (18x10x9ish) lite amp and is doing what it's designed to do, hence my search. I got the same vibe from the Friedman Runt, if it just had some more oomph/bigger feel, that would have been a contender for sure. Weird but 50 watts used to sound much bigger to me? Are builder using smaller output transformers to reduce weight? If so, they are sacrificing that big feel I believe...Am I wrong? What I play and what i'm looking for: 60's 70's Rock, Blues...Beatles, The Who, Sabbath to Petty etc. - Lotsa head room (not so much watts or loud but a big voice) - No more than 2 channels, even 1 great one is fine - An effects loop - A Master volume - Takes gain/fuzz pedals nicely - British flavored gains with glassy cleans. Nothing too vintage loose/fat or compressed or metal - Most Importantly: Compact, Small Box! ...Why are there so few Compact big iron/sounding amps out there? Some I'm considering; Marshall 1987X (and switching out the wide box and having a master added?) Carol Ann Calling Ceriatone and ask them.... ?
