I've been looking, unsuccessfully, for a Sunn Solarus head to take to uni with me. I've come to terms with the fact that the amps too rare for me to get hold of, so I need some suggestions for modern alternatives.
I'm looking for a clean amp head, a second channel isnt really necessary. I like kinda, hot cleans? An example is in verse of the Hot Chip song 'Look After Me'. Also, Mogwai's guitar sound on the Mr Beast album I want an effects loop, and a headphones output too.

Heres a link to the hot chip song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_sDYm3PPK4
Yeahh, those amps are way too big for my needs

Any clean head really, around £500, that takes pedals well
^those are all good suggestions for what you're looking for.

It's going to be hard to find a headphone jack on a head too...
Ahh shit, i missed that. Yeah, just get one of them heads and like a roland microcube for when you have to use headphones. Well, thats what id do.
Ive got a blue-grille Vox AD120something right now, the version before these newer metal grille things, but its pretty big. I love how it sounds and all, but its huge and heavy, and i don't really use all the bells and whistles it has, just a clean channel and a few of the drive channels. That laney sounds alright in reviews, I might test it out sometime.
I might look into the 60w version of my current amp, but I'm not sure if it will sound the same
maybe look into a line 6 pod? they are small, sound great with headphones, and sound good enough plugged into average computer speakers. thats how i used mine while i lived at college

When you crank up the gain to 10 and switch to the lead channel, it actually sounds like you are unjustifiably bombing an innocent foreign land.
