going to buy one of these amps. please vote on personal favorites and any commentary is awesome. thanks

im looking for something that will give me decent clean headroom, but that will also be able to handle a pedal board in the future (chorus, tube screamer, wah, whammy, eq, etc) something super versatile that i can use for college jazz band and for small gigs with my band (punk/alternative/classic rock)

tough to answer without knowing what type of stuff you'll be playing. sure i can tell you my preference but that would be based on what i play.

i'd go with either the Marshall or the Egnator myself. the Marshall does the marshall thing so as a hard rock player that is the kind of tone i go for. the Egnator has a lot of options so can deliver a pretty wide range of tones.

If you like Marshall cleans go for the Marshall. Personally, I'm not a big fan of Marshall cleans so I'd go with one of the Fenders. I have both the DSL and the Deluxe 3, It all comes down to cleans vs overdrive. Marshall has the drive, Fender has the cleans.

Egnator tweaker then. personally i'm not a fan but i play different stuff than what you mentioned. very versatile amp.

I personally own the Blackstar 40 and I think it kicks butt. Definitely better than the DSL. However, the Tweaker is a great amp as well and probably the best for your styles.

Completely a personal choice but I did not like the Egnaters I played through, and gigged for 5 yrs with a HRD. I would use what I know works. Fender.

i owned a rebel 30, tweaker 15 and a renegade. after i got rid of them, i realized that i was glad i did . the tweaker is just blah, the renegade the best. but all of the functions on them are just gimmicky. the wattage knob doesn't make hardly any difference on the rebel, the tube mix knob was dumb on the renegade (amongst many other things) and the tweaker was just shit.

Based the fact that you also want to play with a jazz band and would need to have a nice clean sound the Egnator Tweaker looks nice but one drawback is no internal reverb. Of course all this depends greatly on the guitar or guitars you will be using.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.

i would say the bottom 3 are most versatile. i owned a tweaker 40 and i would hands down take the DSL.

i would take the DSL over all if you want the most versatility as it pulls off cleans to fairly high gain very well. the rest dont really. blackstar yes, but it wont sound like the markshall.

if you want touch sensitivity and breakup on your pick attack / volume, the tweaker can be set very easily for varying amounts of breakup at low volumes or bedroom volumes using the switches. its probably one of the best amps ive seen do that well. it wont do much beyond a classic rock crunch though. need to push it with pedals, and it start buzzing and whatnot.

fenders are fenders. do you want a fender? if so, nothing else on the list will satisfy. i dont like hot rods. too bland. classic fender cleans but crap gain, good working mans amp but others have more character. get teh blues reissue.

i upgraded to a carvin v3m and i am very happy with the purchase. i should have just bought that from the get go. really, it doesnt do the classic rock touch sensitive breakup as well. a little bit. the clean channel has a soak setting that allows this. but its not as good. as a whole the amp is more versatile and im enjoying it more.

i did like the tweaker. solid unit. i would gig with it for sure.

I own a Hot rod and its great on clean, and works perfectly with a tube screamer. the distortion channel is not as good though. but if you are looking for a clean amp its great. Also, it handles effects very well.
