I dont like my Blues jr. as much as I thought.

I have a thin twangy Epiphone Casino.

What's an amp that would go good with this and take away some of the twanginess?

I also play classic rock (60's-80's), folk, country, and jazz.

I also want REALLY GOOD CLEANS, like 80's cleans.

My budget is $300-600. Will not go used. Tube is good, but SS is fine too.

Suggestions?

(no jokes or put downs about SS)

IF your looking at a good SS for cheap i can only recomend a tehc 21 trademark.
there really good SS amps, there overlooked by alot of people.

I've only tried a Classic 30 once. So I cant say either way. In my opinion, you have to play around with it 4 or 5 times to get a feel for it. *god that sounds so wrong*

Also if that doesnt work, I hear Tech 21's are good.

If I have to buy a Tech 21, it wont die on me 2 years later like my 15W Cube, will it?

i'd get a roland cube, or maybe even gang on to that amp and try something like an ibanez tube screamer pedal or the boss blues driver, you like the clean but it sounds weak you say, i'd try out the tube screamer first, what you need is clean overdriven.

^Well if you treat it like crap it will, just dont keep it in humid places and, and if does crap out SS amps can be fixed.
Ive played this one and for an SS its worth fixin.
These arent your run of the Mill SS shit, there really high quality amps, better than flextones, and i hope you take a good look into them.
its not digital so I bet it will take pedals good, its all analouge SS.

Its almost dead.

The speaker's hanging by a thread. It tries to put out sound, but it just cant quite get it.

I turn it up to about 1/2 to 3/4 volume and it sounds okay volume wise. But it goes in and out.

NO, its not cables or guitar. Its the amp, a tech even looked at it and said its gonna die soon, time to look for a new amp.

that sucks, i have an amp about to do the same, i meant to say hang on to, not gang on to, lol, i researched my options a lot, and narrowed it down to either a line 6 spider, a peavy vypr, or a roland cube, the line 6 sounds to synthetic, i have a bad feeling about the peavey, but the roland seems good, not to pricey either, Roland owns Boss and they make some good pedals, this roland cube has built in effects so i thought it would be good to sample them on a cheaper amp to know what i'll get next.

For great cleans, perhaps a Roland Jazz Chorus. Don't expect good distorted tones from it, though.

I'm focusing on cleans and how long it will last.

I want something with good cleans, that will last about 10 years.

Or is that out of budget range ($300-600)?

Tube = Fender, H&K or Ampeg. (Not a blues jr, more like a twin or super) Classic 30's break up pretty early IMO.
SS = Roland or Tech 21.
Don't be afraid to buy used. All you do when you buy new is pad the corporate pockets.
