hi guys,

ive recently been looking into buying a new amp and i have narrowed down my choice to jet city amps JCA5212RC or a laney LC50. they are about the same price and i want to know what youd recommend. does the JCA's minimalist approach garuantee it to be better for the money?

i play mostly funk rock, alt rock and a bit of hard rock and blues but i would love to get a John Frusciante clean tone (slightly distorted/broken up, this i the tone i want: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2op4142irWw ) but i would also love to be able to get nice distortion when needed. im guessing the jet city amp has similarly good compared to the laney distortion but im getting a little big muff and a digitech hardwire sc-2 or boss ds-2 soon anyway.

i generally dont play other people music but john frusciantes tone is something special to me. i also like hendrix and slash style overdrive and maybe a bit of eric clapton from the cream era.

i see advantages in both of the amps. the jet city has two speaker (better for gigs) but the laney has two inputs, a high and a low. the laney also has a bright switch (doesnt really matter to me as i probably wont use it) and a modern distortion switch.

which amp would give me the tone i want best? frusciante uses marshalls, is it true that laneys are more marshall voiced or am i just making it up in my head? which amp has higher quality tubes in it (im guessing the JCA coz of its minimalist approach)?
