Right now I run a 5150 II with a marshall 1960 cab and a few pedals(chorus/delay). It was good and simple for what I was playing (pop punk/hardcore) but I want an amp thats a little more versatile. Im still playing in a pop punk band, but I want something a little different. More importantly I need an amp that I can still crank up for high gain, but something with a nice and warm clean channel as well. I have been looking at the orange rockerverb amp although I havent gotten a chance to mess around with one. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Marshall MG 100 HDFX has a good clean.

As does the Line 6 Spider Valve.

Flame as much as you want, but you know I'm right.

I need something that is a little more versatile. Ive heard the MG 100...terrible with gain. Im looking for a tube amp that still has a nice clean sound.

I'd try a JSX.

I meant overall its ok. I dont "like" the amp for distortion, but its not bad. I really dont like the clean though.

Try a Mesa/Boogie Lone Star if you get the chance. The name makes it sound like it is a stereotypical blues amp, but it can do a whole lot more. It is 100 watts, but can be set to 10 watts for a studio/practice setting or 50 watts for smaller gigs. You get some very good cleans on channel one, and with channel two you can crank up the gain to go into some nice-sounding distortion territory. Check it out!

If you like the Peavey for it's drive and for what you play in a band situation why don't you look at a head specifically for cleans and get an amp switcher, which I've forgotten the name of. I think it's a Radial something though..

I think thats what Holy-Diver was trying to say as well. That way you have your versatility maxed out because you have 2 amps to play with rather than one.

I think ide rather have 1 amp that can do everything I want. I dont exactly have roadies. Carrying around 2 50 lb heads to every show is not my idea of a good time. Im looking for simplicity.
