Yeah thats basically what I need. I have a really broad playing style. I go from like clean blues, to rhcp type stuff, then i switch guitars and get into more of an insane metal style in your face distortion. Is there any dual channel tube amp that can do both?

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

+1 the V3 is pretty much what i tell everyone when they ask "what tube amp should i get" it has fender cleans and mesa gain its a really sweet amp and it takes alot of beating its extremely durable and sounds amazing

If you can find one, a Sunn T50C. I have one, and it really does do everything. They are pretty rare though, so if you can't find one any of the above are also good choices, the F-series have awesome cleans.

Framus cobra! I'm gassing for that amp ever since being able to play one at practise on the weekend. It made me like to play metal. Although i'd still prefer a/bing amps.

I gotta say the ENGL Screamer fits that bill perfectly. It gets a very nice bright Fendery clean tone and has plenty of gain. More than I'd ever need.

Framus Cobra has some very impressive cleans. Nice bright chimey clean if you like that. The Mark IV has a nice clean too, a little darker but nice.

Framus Cobra. Bias it hotter (for cleans and dist.) and turn up the channel volume to 3:00 (for dist.) and you are in heaven.

The Mark IV cleans break up sooner than on the amps above, and the breakup sounds bad to me (you can tweak it do make it a little better, like different amp settings and cooler pickups, but you might get a different amp instead).

Search for Egnater.

There are lots and lots of amps which are on the level above. Go to the gear page, they can name you more amps, not just the typical Mesa/Engl/Diezel blah blah
^ seconded.

Äh, Sie wollen also mit Schlitz.

not my experience with the Mark IV. I did prefer the Framus cleans, but I also liked that it was easier to get some powertube breakup. Running in pentode, simulclass, full power(not tweed), I found the Mark IV to have a ton of headroom, it was earbleeding before I could get breakup.

I'm after a similar amp...how much would one expect to pay for some of the amps listed in this thread?

I would search but I'm at work and have to be short with my internet usage!

Also, are these all heads, or is there a combo out there that does huge amounts of gain?

I really want to try a screamer, however, I don't know how much I'd like having just one EQ for all the channels if I want to switch.

in addition to those already mentioned, brunetti xlr-evo, genz benz el-diablo, vht (not really fendery cleans, but nice all the same), bogner xtc, diezel (see vht, but not just as nice cleans, i have only tried the vh4 though), most engls, etc. EDIT: peavey xxx even would do it on a budget...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
