now that summer is here i am working almost every day so i decided im gonna save up for an amp

i know i dont need a half stack or 100 watts, but im prob gonna get it anyway (sorry slatsmania)

i AM looking for something over the top so please don't recommend me the budget amp


so far what ive looked at is

ceriatone jcm 800 2203
orange rockerverb 100
used 1981(82 or 83) jcm 800 2203

ideally i want an amp that has great cleans and is versatile enough to get pretty heavy, but if i get an amp that dominates the gain field, i will buy a fender twin reverb and AB them

the tone i am truly trying to get is john frusciantes live tone, but my band covers alot of led zeppelin, allman brothers, beatles, ramones, rage againts the machine, skynyrd, and other classic rock stuff

any suggestions? preferably british voiced too

edit: if i get the orange i'll probably get a matching cab, if not i'll prob go avatar so i'll need to factor that into the budget

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.

I'd suggest an epiphone blues custom 30.
It's plenty loud enough, if you need more gain, there's damage control, tube tubescreamers and tubescreamers.
The natural overdrive is sublime.
The reverb very natural.
You'll like it.
...
Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.

For "no budget," you'd be crazy getting an Epi BC.

But yeah, an Orange or maybe the Mesa Boogie Stiletto Ace. I believe that's British-voiced.

things like Bad Cat, Budda, Dr Z, Fuchs.
i really would love a Fuchs.

theres another company called category 5, they have a 2 channel amp that has black face cleans in one channel, and JTM 45 tones in the second.

Assemble a team of the highest-ordained amp-makers and tell them what ya want.

You could call Jim Marshall and Randall Smith and have them work together to make a half Marshall half Mesa super amp of d00m.

Or, get my second favorite amp, the VHT Deliverance 120 [or 60].
