What amp would you guys say is the most "transparent"? As in, has the least color in the clean channel.

an amp makes up the majority of the sound so if you want a real clean "only guitar" tone then plug into the PA.

anyway Fender and Rivera (sp?) have amazing cleans but again the amp does alot of it.

No, i mean, the amp that gives the most uncolored sound. Just wondering

nah, some amps still distort the sound a bit even on the clean channel

Turn down the volume on your guitar. Turn down the gain on the amp. Leave everything else halfway.

I think you guys are not quite understanding the question. I reckon the most transparent amps are probably electro-acoustic amps. Either that or just plug into a good quality PA system. It won't be a particularly pleasant sound mind you, as the amp makes up most of the final sound.

roland jazz chorus. or a spider II.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

Try a keyboard amp.
Guitar amps have a pre-amp which shape the sound a lot, keyboard amps don't as far as I know.

I can't believe I'm seeing the Roland Jazz Chorus and the Spider II mentioned in the same sentence without "shits all over" inbetween...

Roland Jazz Chorus all the way, Peavey Stereo Chorus is pretty good too....Spider? No, just no

I would argue that the Roland Jazz Chorus colors the sound quite a bit. Any amplifier with a preamp will. Any amplifier period. It's a rather strange question, really, and who would want to listen to the "natural" tones of an electric guitar anyway?

You might want to run a multi FX into it and get all your tones from that.

Some jazz fop with a nice sounding hollowbody no doubt, probably wearing a cravat and little round sunglasses.

^ I don't quite understand your reply.


If you had a really kick ass multi FX, or modelling stomp box or something, and you were worried that the amp, or the pre-amp was colouring the sound in an undesirable way you may want to use a keyboard amp.

You probably want something using KT88 valves.

get yourself a small self powered PA system (ie. 4 channel 100watt)

if you're not using a multi fx, why do you want an amp that doesn't color your sound?

Well, yeah i remember, the jazz chorus is really transparent. But spider 2 WTF. I tried using it for jazz and the sound was breaking up at 3/4 the volume.
