im stuck right now in the solid state era so idk how much power i need/shoud have in a tube amp
i love clean tones, chimey all the way to thick warm tones
i am only using it in a recording studio right now and for practice but i hope to play this amp at somg shows

i play a PRS SE custom and a Fender Strat

You want cleans only?

If you want clean at high volumes, get a high wattage amp. Or get a two channel amp.

Budget, Type of Music, etc. are all very helpful. But based on this I'd say '65 Twin Reverb ftw.

General consensus is 15w watts cranked clears a drummer, and 30w will be have enough headroom to to clear the drummer and stay clean.

styles i would say death cab for cutie for the mellowed out tones, incubus, led zepplin (legendary stairway to heaven crystal clear tone), red hot chilli peppers (under the bridge and cant stop) stuff like that.
#8
i dont have any shows yet so i would say no larger than small clubs, max 100 ppl

budget? lets say less than 1100 for now, idk if i can spend more

Depends on the venue and if they have a pa system...

We have on place down here that is a volley ball club and they book outside shows.. So a fully open enviorment some power is going to be needed. Vs a small closed in venue... Everyone will say go small but what if you have an outside venue with no PA?

Thus the reason im a halfstack guy.. You can always turn it down, but once you hit 10 theres no going up...
#11
there always has to be a PA because of vocals, im just buying gear now in hopes that i get used to it and in a year and 1/2 have a band at the college level, i need the amp to be small enough to fit in a college room (ill probably buy a power atinuator once i get there)
#12
You are officially my favorite new member. You're well informed, aren't persistent on getting a halfstack, and have some nice gear to boot. Just a suggestion though, is give a bit more info in your initial post of a "what to buy" thread.


As for your question, you can't go wrong with pretty much any Fender for cleans.

Not always.... Theres a big difference from a vocal only pa setup and a full blown club pa system...

Plus i hate the way pa systems sound.... There never a truly acurate representation of your sound.... And usually the guys running them aren't the most techie guys around. Usually old drunk and dont really care... And the most pa systems have seen better days... Best sounds i've heard at a bar were the guys that brung in half stacks and didnt mic them...

It's brought.

And although some people say 15w tube is enough, you should still go for 30 or more if you have the chance.

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

i was listening to a mesa boogie amp on you tube ( the steletto) and i think that sounds great paired with a PRS guitar, idk how a fender strat would sound through it

any other recomendations?

I've played at some very nice clubs where the pa is actually perfect, but yet again these places are the top of the line where the touring pros play too. Some clubs have it pretty decent though.

A 30w fender tube will be plenty loud for 95% of the time. And alot easier to move around than a half stack. Go to a shop with a good selection and try some different fenders. See what you like.

the stiletto is a pretty good amp, usually not mentioned too much, but it's pretty marshally which should cover your zeppelin, rhcp, and incubus, and should be flexible enough for indie stuff too.

mind you, it's kinda expensive new, and on the used market probably around $1300.
