I am saving Up for a Traynor YCV50 blue custom. I usually play stuff like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie ray vaughan, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Led zeppelin etc. So they are mostly related to blues. I'm not really into really heavy stuff anymore.

So anyways, the traynor is a whole lotta money, and There's this little voice inside me, telling me for more suggestions. Well first of all because it will be the first tube amp, That I will own. I have played a bunch of them, but still owning them is a different scenario. And second, It's a hell of a lot of money and I have to work my ass of sacrificing valuable practice time. I'm buying the amp for about 700(new) or less if I can find one used. So any suggestions? I need excellent cleans, and a nice overdrive, no br00talz or anything.

I'm going to be playing through a Mexican Standard Stratocaster with Texas Special Pickups.

I have one, I find it sounds very nice. I don't play entirely clean very often, but I really dig the tone you get, especially with a little reverb. I've heard from a reliable source who has been playing guitar for 30ish years and was a professioan recording engineer that it sounds nice. I've played small gigs with it, and it is more than loud enough. I won't be needing a new amp any time soon. I'd say go play with it at a store and try to get a sound you like. If you can, go for it.

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...

I played one, but it didn't have the stock tubes. I kind of liked the tone I got out of it, But I've never played on wit the stock tubes.

With a new set of tubes you couldn't ask for a better amp (in your price range) for your style.
Tiger style.

I think the Traynor aces them both, I played a 2x10 YCV50 on wednesday night and it was stunning...certainly the Hot Rod's drive channel is extremely underwhelming.
Actually called Mark!

Its not really a bedroom amp. More of a gig/jam amp. I'm going to start gigging with my band very soon.

NAh man, thanks, I was thinking of getting a backup amp for my bedroom. I was thinking valve junior for a backup. Now I might take a look at the Blackheart
