Great little amps the caliber series. Sounds sorta like a Mark, but without that amazing tight bass, fantastic mesa on a budget. Seems to be about market value for them at the moment, if your willing to spend a little more, have a look around for a DC-5, 50 watts, more than big enough to gig with aa bigger headroom and in my opinion a tighter bass.

There is also a fender hot rod deluxe for $400 in my town. I'm not gigging at all so I don't need more power. a 20 watt tube was enough for me.

Great deal and would be perfect for what you need.

Yeah they're great amps. You're going to need an OD to push them into modern metal territory though.

As for loudness... They're ****ing loud. As in, you will not be able to go over 1 for bedroom use. You do NOT need more wattage.

I want a Fender because they are THE American rock sound. I'm proud to be an American.

The Mesa.

The Fender would be crap for what you're playing.

Really?

Does it seriously have that much less gain than a DC-5/50 Cal +? Because both those amps have more gain than you could ever need.
