I have decided that my next amp will not be a versatile all-round amp. But a more of a focused clean amp. I will then get whatever extra dirt I need from pedals.

Any ideas on a nice Clean/bluesy OD amp for around what you can sell/trade a Marshall TSL602 with Marshall/Celestions for?

Thanks in advance!

An older Bassman or Traynor YBA-1 would do the trick as well.

Don't be.
The Roland JC is heralded as one of the greatest clean tones in history.
If you're going 'clean-focused' - you want something which is going to stay clean as you turn it up, not turn into crunch which you get from Valve amps

I don't mind a bit of bluesy crunch

But ok I'll keep an eye out for one. Thanks

Any more ideas?

Solidstate amps crunch...very annoyingly...

I have no idea about the JC overdriving, but i always hear that a Twin Reverb is a very hard to crank amp

Yeah but you need to turn it up really ****ing loud, and idk about you or anyone else but I'd never feel like cranking an 80 watt solidstate amp

well the jazz chorus is nice for cleans and does do some alright crunch, theyre voiced steril not in a bad way, the jazz way, i actually just got a gibson Lab Series and i love it, its voiced alot like a jazz chorus, all around great cleans on both, but lack a tad on the overdrive, dynamics tend to not sound as good, i honestly dont know great clean tube amps i rarley use a clean channel on my recto

I was never put off by it being a solid state amp. I have the 120 watt head and i plug it into a Marshall 1960 AV in stereo and its NOTHING but headroom. That thing is TOO loud. and sounds good the whole time.

A LabSeries isn't a bad thought. BB King loved them.

Still stand behind a jazz chorus and pedals lol.

ZT stuff is great for cleans and bluesy crunch

And those are humbuckers too! It won't really break up without a boost with singles.

That's with it's internal 6.5" speaker though. Obviously you'd probably want to use it with a big Cab so it sounds less brittle, or get the little Lunchbox Cab to add a bit more low end.
