as the title states I need a Good fender clean tube amp for about oh we'll say 500 and I can push to the VERY most 700 USD.


It has to have good cleans thats what I'll use it for the most. I though about a 70s bassman cause they're only like 450 bucks but it's more of a dirty amp I guess

what does the BJ have in it I though they were 6L6's are they 6v6?

how are the cleans on a bassman I've heard many things but 400 bucks is a great price

EL84's in the blues jr. Hey I like mine, cleans are better on the 6L6 equip'd amp tho. Deeper, fuller - it's hard to explain. But they are good on the Blues Jr.

I have not played a bassman. The add says bassman ten. http://ampwares.com/amp.asp?id=30

That is worth a road trip to Duluth sir.

I would say so I think I might call or email this guy I had an amp come into the shop yesterday that looked just like that and we were gonna post it at like 700 or something like that

I'm not too big into the Silverface Fender amps. Too icepickish.


You can probably score a used DRRI. They aren't 6L6GC amps but they destroy most amps in the Fender line for cleans.

^Exactly, not to mention the DR sounds great when you start getting a little breakup, its very touch sensitive when it's on the threshold.

Clean headroom maybe? If you ever gig and need super clean cleans then the DR wouldn't quite get you there. Yeah, it would sound dead sexy breaking up but the headroom might not be there.

Also, clips of the AOR yet? My mouth is salivating in anticipation.
#18
^I'd still take a DR broken up cleans over an HRDs cleans. The HRD is good, but the dr is in it's own league.

+1 Kevin.

and I hardly ever need more than 2 or 3 on at any venue.

I absolutly love DR's
Probably my favorite Fender amp.
I would take it in a heartbeat over the HRD. Plus you'll probably be miced at gigs.
Are you gonna be A/B'ing them?
#23
The VT-22 cleans are tits.

Seriously.

I'd take it over a RI or SF Fender for cleans, for sure.

The GV-15 is also awesome.


The Portaflex is also awesome.

Ampeg=awesome.
#24
yeah thats my plan AB the DR and the AOR or maybe ABY and and run em both at the same time

I've never not been mic'd so...yeah

In that case, count out the HRD. I've never tried an Ampeg but Goolz raves about them and I fully trust his ear for tone so they are probably great.
Another option is some old Gibson amps.
http://duluth.craigslist.org/msg/814045939.html
I've haven't played them extensivly but I believe the ran on 6l6, 6v6 and similar tubes. Could be worth looking at.
#29
I agreed I trust goolz also. I've played a couple of gibsons they are more like Bassmen then anything I havn't played that one though

They were quite random in their amp construction so make sure you test them. I haven't really tried them much but I liked the cleans on the ones I've played

I can second the fact that Ampegs are great amps. Very good amps. If you run across a Sun, they rock too.
