Cleans at high volume and low wattage tube amps aren't a good combination

there's a 50 watt single speaker JC I believe. It's about perfect for jazz.

This really wouldnt help but I feel like posting it anyways. I tried my friends behringer bass amp with my squier guitar and it had this bluesy tone so I started playing some jazz stuff, and it worked.

Depends on the size of the band. You want it to be very clean, and if you've got a 25 piece band to deal with, a blues junior won't have that kind of volume. Plus, leaving it at school means you probably don't want anything too nice. You could try a Cube-60 or an AD50T.

The other option is a keyboard amp: they're EQ is pretty mellow and does jazz well, and they stay clean forever. You'll need more watts than with a regular guitar amp, but they're less expensive. A 100 watt Crate or Kustom should do very well.

I'd like to point out again how ridiculously suitably the Jazz Chorus is for this

Also the Fender SS Princetons do pretty well too

You could try a VJ, but I dont know if the 5 watts will get you over everyone else unless you are mic the amp into a PA system. Actually, if I were you, I would upgrade my main amp for my house (I'm assuming the Line 6 is your main amp), and then take the Line 6 to school, because it will be loud enough.

Trust me, it wouldn't be loud enough. Cranked maybe, but not clean. There's also no line out, so you couldn't run it into a PA if that's what you meant.

Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

Our school has both....
I have to say I prefer the Jazz Chorus (although its really old, and unreliable) to the Princtons... of course the princton is built like a rock.
great amp.

I just used my school's Peavey Keyboard amp when I was in jazz band and it worked perfectly.
