I really like upper-mids to high treble, almost country-voicing.

I also want something SS, ~50-65W, NO MODELLING, 60's-70's overdrive, 60's-70's cleans (Eagles, Chicago, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Jefferson Airplane, CCR)

I have found a few amps that meet this criteria.

The Fender Frontman 65R sounded nice, it was exactly what I was looking for.

I also tried the Crate FW65. It was the same as above, except the treble was a bit shrill. Of course I could always back it off. It also has a built-in tuner. I couldn't figure out how to activate the tuner though, so it may not be that accurate.


Anyway, I was wondering which would be best for the following:

Loud enough for small gigs (coffee shop, medium-sized restaurant, small clubs)

SS, ~50-65W, NO MODELLING, 60's-70's overdrive, 60's-70's cleans (Eagles, Chicago, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Jefferson Airplane, CCR)


please respond, thanks.

Uh, why not just follow the last thread? Classic 30 or Blues Jr. They won't shock you!

Would an Epi Casino sound good through that Kustom HV30 (High Voltage Series 30W)?

Also is it a full enclosure or open-backed?

I tried a SS Kustom once and it was bassy, does this mean all Kustoms will be bassy?

do whatever you think sounds nice...
i havn't played a flexwave but i have a crate glx65 and the tuner is on the entire time so just go on the clean channel or any channel really but clean is the easiest and hit the string and it will tell u if its in tune or not.

as for which one its totally your call, the crate has an added higher gain channel and some effects, nothing too great but it gives you the option at least and the built-in tuner is always, always helpful.

if i was in your shoes i'd go with the crate so u don't have to worry about bringing a tuner or what have you. but if you don't like the sound as much then go for the fender.

We kind of just told you TUBE is what most of the musicians that play the music you like play. THats not some endorsment crap. Its true.

If you don't want a classic 30, get like a Cube or something...

Just go get the Crate V18-112, for what you play it will do the trick. Plus it's like $330 new? Emkay? It does the BeeGees like nobody's business. (Tom Jones too).

It's impossible to convince this guy about anything, he listens to no advice. Just get what you want and don't ask us about it if you don't want to listen. Classic rock = Tubes

Fender Super Champ XD. The FM65DSP's tube relative. Same thing, but tubes. Meaning this thing gets a mean clean/dirty sound and high treble if you like that kind of sound. It is modeling, but it's also tube, meaning at 300 bucks you get a loud crisp tone without buying something that sound like sh1t.
I got some good guitars, yo.

You are an idiot. If you can't figure out how to turn something on, it doesn't mean it doesn't work nimrod. Here's the thing, get a tube amp or your tone will be lacking very much so. I use a Super Champ XD, sure it's a 20 watt tube amp, but let's compare here. 65 SS watts is = to 20 tube watts. If you don't want to listen to us telling you tubes over and over again, then don't ask. 300 bucks tube vs 300 bucks SS, you decide. You want a good tone or a sh1t tone?
