I have a Fender FM212. It has an AMAZING clean channel for its price (about $300). It's very loud, 100watts... perfect for gigging.

But it has really crappy distortion. Which is why I don't use it.

May I ask why no tube amps?


You may. But I don't want this thread to turn into a discussion about this. Basically tube amps cost lots of $$$. I have only a little bit of $$$. Plus don't like the idea of maintaining one. I am already searching for advice on tube amps elsewhere in case I decide to go the tube amp way.

But, the more likely scenario is SS for me at this stage, and if you combine the two amp types into one thread, it is impossible for people to give you SS advice ("anyone who wants SS must be cuckoo in the head" kind of attitude). So I just want this thread to be about SS amps.

For a while I'll just be using the amp to continue with home practice, and jamming with my friends, but I wan't it to be good enough to carry me onto gigging small venues if or when my band gets up and running in a giggin situation.

Way off in the future if I decide I want to switch to tube, then that's fine, but right now, SS all the way. I don't wanna do the usual thing and buy a puny SS for practice and a tube amp for gigging. I want the one amp to do both to a decent level, and then later if I decide to go tube, then I can retire the SS to just for rehersal/practice.

^Maybe because of their price? (directed to ibanez4life SZ!)

Try out a Hartke.

EDIT: although it's actually a modeller, I've heard the Flextone can get real close (try PMing Dave_mc though)

Fender won't give you a Marshall tone.

roland jazz chorus. Best solid state cleans the world has to offer in my opinion.

^ Ditto. But I'm not too sure how it takes pedals though. And it's a bit pricy.

Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

Well, quality costs. It's unfortunate, but true. And I agree with the Jazz Chorus recommendation. If not that, then a Fender definitely. Maybe a Fender hybrid? The FM series is crap, IMO.

to clear that up, i ain't after marshall tone from the amp, as long as the amp gives me a good clean sound that handles pedals well, i should be able to get close enough to marshall tone from this pedal that ive found

Even if your pedal is some kind of Marshall Dist/OD, I don't think you'll get 'that' close. IMO EL34 tubes will probably get you closer.
