What are some good SS amps for classic rock (60's and 70's)?

Think like: Jefferson Airplane, Eagles, Chicago, Argent, David Bowie, the Byrds, etc.

near country-voicing

BRIGHT

~65W (loud enough for coffee shop to medium-sized restaurant w/ full band (3 guitars, drum, and keyboards)

not too heavy (around 40 lbs.)

NO AMP MODELLING (built-in FX are fine if able to bypass)

closed-back (completely, to know why, read my closed-back thread)

$300-500

NO TREYNOR, RANDALL, or BOUTIQUE brands

Stop making so many threads. Either delete this one or the other one, there's no need for this many.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Valvetronix

But if you want a classic rock amp, why do you want a solid?

He's got OCD, go read the other thread (Is this amp closed back or something like that).

Why no Traynor? I really can't think of any SS amps in that budget that are good and aren't modelling (except for Jazz Chorus, but that's mainly a clean amp).

I would like to state to everyone that this guy has terrible tone ocd. he is afraid his tubes will get ruined if his amp is open back. He is afraid of buying tube amps becuase he will have to take care of it. In general he is putting matience and common knowledge against having good tone.

If you refuse to listen to us, why do you keep making threads?

Oh, ok I didn't read the other thread.

Even though it's a modeler, the Valvetronix is excellent on classic rock. If you throw a OD in front of the UK 70's model, you can get an excellent tone, same with the AC30 model. All the effects except for the autowah are good too.

Dude, stop making threads like this. You're just like Zaffie8808!
Just like 3 hours ago, you wanted a tube amp, now you're back to SS.

Dude, just get a t00b combo.

Fender HRD, a Peavey Classic, anything like that will work.

If It MUST be SS, get a Vox VT or a Jazz Chorus or something.

I agree with everyone saying enough threads already. Just go buy an amp and stop asking us if you're going to ignore all our advice. I sympathize if you have OCD, I have it somewhat, but if it makes you not listen to us then don't ask.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Fender 85 Deluxe. It is open backed, but one hell of an amp with a very useable overdrive.
