That Baron amp is pretty sick. the cleans are better then the mark IV by a long shot.

The Distortion is pretty sick too.

EDIT: Man thats a custom order too, maybe I can get a Mark IV clone....Hmmmm

Look into a used Rivera amp, all the his amp have fender cleans and are extermely versatile if your into more of a Marshall voiceing on the OD channel. Awesome amp that have quailty componets and are built like tanks.

i think dave could ship it to canada
and also look at the MII60/100 and Rivera KR100 and the Framus Cobra and the Titan Custom(another "affordable" custom ordered amp)

and if you want a Mark IV clone PM DLrocket89 and ask him if he could make you one(or something better).

i have a v3 and a 6505plus. i wouldnt reccommend the high gain on the v3 although the cleans are good, and vice versa for the 6505plus.

Baron FTW. If not i love the cleans and gain on the 6262 if you will take the risk.

th V3 handles HIgh gain fine and with an OD it can do modern stuff

Do you have one?


Ive had one for 5 years. Ive tried 6l6s el34s ods eqs etc al ad nausium and it is still buzzy and somewhat fizzy.

yeah...you have a high gain head that does good cleans. Im willing to bet you just aren't cranking it up enough. Everytime I get sick of my head, I just crank it up and I fall in love again.

Nothing does everything perfect. If you want a lot of gain your amp will never quite sound like a fender. Try the 5150III though the cleans might be more in the ball park of what you want.

I don't believe that first statement at all.

My TITAN cleans are godly and the distortion is godly as well.....this is why TITAN makes guitar amps...because he couldn't find a high gain amp that would do amazing cleans either.

ENGL

What kind of response is that? An entire brand is not a solution.

A friend of mine happens to have an ENGL Screamer 50W 1x12 and it basically has no useable cleans at all if you are looking for a Fendery clean.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

a lot of people will disagree but I think the dual recto can get some awesome clean tones if you tweak it right.
