I'm looking for a guitar amp with excellent clean tones. I am going to be nearly exclusively playing it clean, with my strat for those that are curious. Built-in reverb would be nice, but not necessary. Preferably tube.

says you have a JSX. Those have great cleans, but chances are, if you do find anything with better cleans, you'll end up with a fender tube amp. Without a price range, its kinda hard to find an amp for you but pretty much all fender tube amps are the best cleans you can get.

I say Vox AC30 or a Fender Twin Reverb

Fender.

My carvin MTS has nice cleans, they're weak until you boost the master a little bit, then they're great.
I've also got a blues junior.

Meh, the Vox AC30s breakup a lot more than the Fenders at high volume. So I'd get a Fender Twin Reverb or something like that.

jazz chorus is meant to have the best cleans, works great with boss stomp boxes and multi effects as well (apparently lol). Johnny Demarco rules

A Fender Twin Reverb will probably be your best option. I personally love the Vox cleans more than any other, so I'd get an AC30.

Try to get a vintage blackface Super Reverb. You won't regret it.

PS: to the Peavey JSX comment: No, they don't have good cleans.
#20
Maybe I didn't explain what I want very well. I want a small tube combo with one speaker, for portability. I do get a good clean tone with the JSX, but nothing special. Most of the amps posted have been to big. I am strongly considering the Blues Jr. Anyone know of some good clips of it clean?

I accidentally made one in the Electric Guitar forum. I haven't been posting in it, so it should have died off. Other than that one, no.

do you want completely clean cleans, or slightly compressed sounding, on the edge of breakup kind of cleans?

completely clean at any volume = roland Jazz Chorus.

completely clean until you push it really far = blackface fender of some description.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
#26
i think chea is the only one who saw the post about small portable combo, 1x12. Yes the Blues Jr is a great little clean amp that doesn't weigh a ton, has great reverb. So does the Deluxe Reverb (22W) and Princeton (15W). I just played the last 2 and think they are both great small portable great sounding clean combos.

How much power do you need? A blues junior won't cut through the mix at most gigs.

I'd suggest a fender Blues deluxe. Great cleans, and a lot more clean headroom than the hot rod deluxe. plus it's way more portable than the a twin or super reverb.

I was going to suggest something by Laney, but meh.

I use a Laney Tt20 and it has excellent clean, built in reverb and a little drive as well.
Sweet.
#30
For an unusual suggestion try the Marshall AS50R, I think thats its name. It's an acoustic amp but with a strat the clean sound is one of the best I've heard.
#31
I want a warm clean, not a bright one and it seems that the fenders are fairly bright. I'm looking for something similar to Keb' Mo's warmer tones.

Pretty much all Fender vintage reissue amps as mentioned before or, if you got the dough to spend then look at Hiwatt amps. Pricey as hell, but they got huge clean headroom. One of the reasons David Gilmour loves them, then uses a pedal to dirty it up. Fender or Hiwatt + comp pedal = smooth sustain and clean as a babies behind
