Ok so I'm tihnking about getting a Fender amp, but i want to know if all fenders ahve a good clean channel or is it only certain models?

The Frontman has a nice clean for a Solid State amp. The Twin Reverb has one of the best cleans of any amp. If you do buy a Fender, get an all-tube model.

Well, the frontman series are solid state, and the twin reverb is tube. There really won't be a comparison, the twin reverb is going to sound leaps and bounds better. But any Fender tube amp should have a good clean channel. My blues junior has great clean sounds, and my cousin's twin reverb is downright orgasmic.

EDIT: Just saw your price range. If you're gonna buy a fender amp in the 300-500 dollar range, definately go for the blues junior. It's only 15 watts, but it's a LOUD 15 watts. I've used one for small gigs before and it held out just fine.

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden

What about the Super Champ? ( I haven't tried it yet, but looks promising).

Also, If I gig with this will people (the audience), are they gonna think "get a REAL amp"?

mostly down here, the smaller venues, guys are using 50W SS 2x12's. The Super Champ should put them to shame once it starts running, right?

no, TS, I wasn't telling you, though it would be a good idea to try it, I was askingother people in this thread. I'm kinda in the same boat as you TS.

That's like comparing a Matchbox Porche to a Porche. They look similar, but one's a child's toy and the other's a damn Porche!

You'd easily be able to get a second hand all tube Fender Hot Rod for that much. You'd destroy your little friends' 50W SS 2x12's with one of those.

You Don't Need 100W.

+1 to the HRD, perfect amp for you.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

On the used market I see hot rod deluxe's go for less than $500 depending on where you live. Blues Jr's go for about $350. Both are great amps for cleans.
