Alright, I have narrowed my search down to these 3....

and YES, they are all SS amps. I don't want a tube amp YET. I just want something to use until I find my own "personal" tone. You know what I mean?

Here are the amps...

Raven RG 100

Crate Flexwave 65FW

Fender Frontman 65R


So, I was thinking 65W-100W, that'll be loud enough if I jam with friends ocassionally, right? and if one is a drummer?

Also, I am going to be using my Epi Casino through this, so bear that in mind. look at my profile to see what I play/listen to.


Which can cover literally EVERY TYPE of classic rock?
Also, which would give me better highs, and brighter cleans?

vox ad 50?

a modelling amp will help you find your tone. i usually suggest a 30W but you if you want to play wt a full band...

Modelling amp will definitely help you find your tone. You're making no commitments that way. And the Vox is a stellar SS amp.

Lord, those amps suck for classic rock. Try a Classic 30.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

His choices, the vox is alright. I posted that thinking I would be the first poster.

Please, as much sense as this makes - don't go there.

I agree with the Vox suggestions too. AD50 for you. Do it.

NO VOX OR MODELLING!!!!!

I already have a digitech rp350, so I have enough modelling.

I mean for developing my own style, and tone, not what model I like. UGH!

Also, what would be closest to a SS version of a Fender 57 Deluxe? just curious. (and because I can't afford a 57 deluxe)

Neptune, your amp is a very significant part of yout "tone." If you are simply trying to find what effects you need/like and work on your "style" - heck you can play your RP350 through the 1/8" headphone output/ or through computer.

One of my first amps was a rickenbaker (SP?) solid state with a distortion pedal/ and occaisional wah...that was it ... and I enjoyed...LOL. Later, I got a little crappy crate that I just played the hell out of (no effects at all.) The Crate wasn't the greatest (duh) but it did the job. Literally after many years playing that thing, the insides melted into somekind of liquid oooz - awesome. So I guess I'll recommend the Crate!

Testing anything you can get your hands on is the best option for finding your tone.. Buying a lowend amp wont help you in finding it.. Unless you think your going to be the next big artist and be going on tour using a raven...

well, we all get stars in our eyes...LOL

My dream rig would be a Rickenbacker 360 through a '57 Deluxe. I got a chance to try this out at a GC in Dallas area, when I visited my uncle, also a guitarist. It sounded exactly like what I wanted.

So, really, I'm trying to find the "poor man's" version of the above....

Just get the goddamn Frontman then, it's a sucky amp, but you don't want to get a better amp. Go order it now and save us from the threads, of which you'll probably do one every 2 days at least.

I wouldn't settle on any of those three. There are some decent classic rock tube amps on a budget. Check out the Crate V18-112. ($329 new) If you can go used there is more out there depending on where you live. Try out as many amps as you can tho.

Well, actually the Flexwave isn't a modelling amp, unless you count built-in modulation, delay and reverb.
#16
Your RP350 has shit modelling. The Vox's is actually good, so get that.

Or, you can continue being blindingly stupid and buy a piece of trash like the frontman.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

He doesn't want modelling or tubes, so I say get the piece of trash.

Mwahaha, beat you by two minutes (and I even spent like 5 minutes trying to confirm that).

did you even try an ad 50?
i wouldnt compare it even slightly to a digitech rp.

if you want really nice cleans and a SS amp that can cover classic rock, it's a good choice.

dont get a frontman or flexwave.

if you want great SS cleans, and hate modeling.....then ummm JC120?
