the line 6 vetta is pretty cool, it has song names for settings, i.e. the title Cliffs of Dover will give you that exact sound

I've heard that the gain is awesome but the cleans aren't the best

I'd say the mesa boogie road King, and the Marshall JVM is suppose to be "every marshall built into one" but ive never played one, so I wouldn't really be able to say. I have played the Road King though and that thing can nail any tone IMO

There is an MI Audio amp with 4 seperate all tube channels.

I shall go research it now...I know it was at NAMM...

From their site...
The Facts

- A Vacuum tube guitar amplifier, featuring 4 completely independent, and uniquely voiced channels.

- Each channel has the flexibility to operate from clean to high gain.

- 4 FX loops, assignable to any channel.

- Dual Master Volumes.

- 2*EL34 power amp, with 5 operating modes, producing from 9W up to 60W output power.

- MIDI switching.

- Handcrafted in Sydney, Australia.

More info coming soon,... we promise!



Either that or the Mesa MKIV

Id say a JCM800 with a few good pedals would be pretty versatile. But if the JVM delivers on its promise, then that would be great as well.
#10
well my friend has a JCM 800 (it's actually his uncles but he gigs with it) and he puts it through a 1960 A Lead...and it sounds AMAZING, cleans are really nice too......but you're gonna need the dough

err.....................wut?

Now i think this deserves dumb ass post of the day.

Most versatile amps are most likely The JVM, JSX, Mark IV, The Triaxis Preamp with decent power amp.

Thats My Opinion

Nope. If it's sheer versatility, rather than quality of sound that's needed, some kind of solid-state modelling amp is definitely going to be the best option.

If you're simply looking for a tube amp that can cover alot of bases, look at a Mesa Mark IV or Roadking, as a lot of other people have said.
#23
I've spent all day mucking with my Carvin Legacy, and it's great. The best clean channel I've ever heard on a tube amp, and the distortion is kind of like a hot-rodded JCM800. Now bear in mind that it is like a Marshall in that it sounds best and has the warmest sound when cranked over 4, which even on the 50w setting is LOUD. However, I just went out and bought a Boss OD-3 and run that into it - sounds orgasmic for leads and boosted rhythm. Run the Level full up and Dist all the way down, and it doesn't screw with the amp sound at all, it's just "more" of the Legacy sound.

Actually he wanted to know the MOST VERSATILE amp EVER. Not the best sounding versatile one. But the msot versatile. Which isn't an analouge tube amp.

I own a Flextone III XL - IMO the best amp ever made. It models arround 25 different amps with astonishing accuracy - it's portable, loud, and armed with a maybe a distortion/OD pedal there's no sound you can't coax out of it. It's got XLR outs, so every front-of-house sound guy will love you to bits, and it's a most reliable amp for touring around with. Sure i'd like to own all the original models, but it's not practical and with this i get a lot more bang for buck. Maybe a little big for jams/practising, but there's smaller versions.

Give it a try they're fantastic. Some people bag them, but they're usually serial whingers who can't come to grips with technology

Fender Twin Reverb.

I dunno, it's got the famously amazing cleans, and is amazingly acceptable of pedals.
I love mine.

d sPidoRzz valvez - actually is quiet versitile for the price tho.

nah, the Jvm is pretty versitile. It also depends and what you want tone wise too.

I say no to the JVM solely because I find it to be quite tonally lacking....I suppose it is pretty versitile, but there's better.. No one has said Rivera--the Knucklehead Reverb series are INCREDIBLY Versatile. As are the Mesa/Boogie Roadking, mark IV, and Roadster. Then there's the Brunetti 059 (two amps built into one). Randal MTS and Egnater module amps are quite versatile too. Then there's the ENGL E670 and Invader. As stated, in terms solely on versatility, the Vetta has to win.

i just gotta carvin x100-b( w/ 6l6 and the curvy logo) and the things insanely versitile, its gotta clean channel based off a 68 bassman and a distortion channel based off a jcm 800 plus a active eq and a 5 band graphic eq, not to mention fx loop, line out, and switchable between 25 50 and 100 watts, its definately a great amp, oh yah i forgot to mention its only about 350 dollars

ummm...one guy up above i believe was referring to the Randall MTS series

that's what i use

and i'd have to say.....

WINNER!!!

they're SUPER versatile, the head version and rack version hold four different modules (i.e. four different channels) and not to mention ALL TUBE of course lol.

really, these amps haven't gotten much circulation in the UG community it seems....but they really ARE beautiful amps. you can have the cleanest twangy cleans of a fender, AC30 gainster, marshall plexi crunch, and a mesa Rectofier hi gain distortion all in ONE amp, and don't be fooled, all these modules (runnin like $210 a piece) faithfully replicate the tone of the originals EXREMELY well.

that's my two cent....

i love these models, i'm jus so happy that i accidentally ran across one in the mall...the best discoveries are by accident lol. go check em out tho! if you've got some serious dough saved up, you can get all you need in one amp!!!

Digital sucks, that's why there's pedals if you feel the need for effects.

Now you seem to suddenly know what your talking about. Coming from the person who was arguing over how a halfstack is so much better then a combo, even if its SS v. tube.

Wrong. You were just recently saying how SS stacks were better than tube combos.
Plus, you obviously haven't heard how good digital can be. You are refering to low end crap amps. The vettas are high end modelling. You just need to go back to whatever you were doing before you started posting on this forum and maybe learn something before making ignorant statements.
#38
Well, everybody loves their own amps. But most versatile? How about the THD's?
You can put just about any combination of preamp or amp tubes in them without
any biasing. Of course, I have a Bivalve, so I'm a bit biased

I was looking into a Mesa, but I tried one and just didn't like it near as much as the
Bivalve.

Quote by TheShred201
Well, in tone the THF aren't the most versitile IMO....Ive never heard a br00talz clip from a THD.

And hey, I gave lots of reccomendations that I don't have.


Well, it doesn't matter. These kind of threads are long on opinion and short on
fact anyway ...
