I've only tried the first amp, which I liked. I can't see you liking the Fender Princeton Chorus. The VTM gets high regard - never tried it. The Carvin is a quality amp, could be a winner there - is there any way to try it?
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Now i got it to work. The Carvin is solid would work well espicaly with some effects before it.

Personally the JCM900 is an absolute classic amp that many bands play. So I would go with that.

never heard of carvin - but a 100w valve is going to give you hearing damage...

for mod rock - noise i'd say the marshall or peavey, they both have plenty of bite. fenders have a more bluesy tone (esp as this is based on a 60's amp)

I like the JCM900 too, but it's probably a bit expensive for me. The VTM I know to be a JCM800 on steroids, so with the right mods and a powertube change can get me that Smashing Pumpkins clean sound I'm so obsessed with.

The Carvin looks cool too, unfortunately it's in Christchurch which is the wrong island so I can't try it.

I don't mind keeping it at 1 when I'm in my bedroom.

So I've pretty much decided to ignore the Princeton Chorus.

All I question on the Carvin is whether it will have enough gain on tap for what you want to play. If you are boosting it - then that's another story. The JCM900 could be more versatile overall. Again, I can't speak to the VTM but it sounds like you have some experience with it.

the vtm sounds great once you find your sound with it, but there's only one channel, so be aware of that. i think either the vtm or the jcm900 would be your best bet. the vtm is great for noise-rock stuff.
