I was wondering if someone could help figure out some good amps that sound really good clean. I've heard that Vox are good but there are pretty expensive. Also i heard Kustom amps are good but I've never played one. I want something between 30 - 60 watts

pretty much any Fender tube amp.

whats your budget?

Pretttty much. Go for a Blues Jr., DeVille, Hot Rot Deluxe, etc.
I just played a Fender Super Champ XD at a local shop, and that had a great clean channel. $300. Maybe it just sounded good cause my Spider has a crappy clean channel.

Pretty much any Fender tube sounds good. A Vox AC15 is around $600, but its only 15 watts. But Fenders, like a Hot Rod DeVille, are pretty expensive tbh. I think, judging by the demos, a Crate Palomino V32 has very nice cleans, depending on your guitar.

The cleans are awesome, the reverb is great too. Plus, it looks sweet. Oh, and it takes pedals well.

Fender Twin Reverb..... that's 85 watts though. Thing's a loud bastard, but it has loads of clean headroom.

Jus wanna point out that tube amps in general would work well for your purpose.


Well, except for the higher gain ones.

JCM800/900, Peavey 6505, etc. aren't exactly known for their cleans.

I disagree on the 900. I bought it specifically because it had a great clean channel to go with the the dirty channel. Not saying by any means it's better than Fender cleans but it's the best clean channel of any Marshalls in my opinion, not glassy but warm and smooth. So if the TS did want nice gain aswell along with having a bigger budget a 900 wouldn't be too bad an idea.
Anyway enough of that. The Blues Junior seems a good shout along with a used Classic 30 (you can get them used under $500 can't you?) which would have a decent dirty channel also. So I'd say either of them or save a bit more for a Hot Rod Deluxe.

My choices were similar. I looked at a HRDx, VK, but ended up getting the Defender.

if you want solid state, the fender frontman 212R has a great clean channel if you have humbuckers.

Basically any fender tube amp really.
The majority of fender tube amps have real good cleans.
I'd go for a Hot Rod/Blues series amp, and go used.

Or, the blues junior is good if you don't mind a lower wattage.
