Describe to me clean/low gain Fender/Vox/Marshall
 
I like the guitar rig I have. It is very clean and clear (Mesa D180 into ENGL 4x12 v30) but almost too much so. I'd be interested in having a second tone with a different flavor or type of low gain breakup, maybe with a character pedal (Tech 21, Joyo etc). I don't know tons of guitar gear/amps.

Could you guys tell me about the general tones of cleans and very slight OD from Fender, Vox and Marshall?

Vox= chimey jangly tones
Fender= good amounts of treble and brightness
Marshall= pretty midsy sounding

I'd take either a Vox or a Fender for your situation, IMO Marshalls tend to be more for gainier purposes. We need a budget first though.

Thanks for the descriptions.

Budget... nothing extreme. $200 max. I was thinking pedals/outboard pre.

Though for a killer combo I could possibly save up for about $500 (I'd be thinking used Mesa Subway or Fender Blues Jr. Delux at that rate).

I had a buddy show off his Marshall DSL through a 1960. That had awesome cleans, warm and detailed, sounded like the gain (just a hair of OD on loud notes) was a little spongey/forgiving which I like. I am sure cab was part of it too.

Used Pro Junior,Blues Junior, Classic 30, AC15.

Personally i would put some more of that pedal money into an amp and just pickup a little booster/overdrive. Used Ts-9 or a Bad Monkey or something in that flavor should be fine.

How loud do you need to be? Is this drummer levels?

Go Vox or go home.
What redandwhite12 said fits its description.
Fulltone Fulldrive 2 MOSFET, IMO gives it an awesome Classic Rock OD sound.

Drummer levels would be ideal. The D180 that I am using for clean tons has a 6x 6L6 power section, it can get loud (plus I am using a 4x12). I could plug an outboard pre or any type of preamp directly into it's power section if I needed to.

If I was going for a combo, volume wouldn't matter all that much. Keeping up with medium volume drummer levels for practice would be fine. I also have a Krank 1x12 cab with a Legend V12 in it that could boost up a small combo.
