I'm thinking about getting a fairly small amp that I can carry around to jam with mates and use in small scale practices and stuff. Budget is not an issue at the moment, as I'm only hypothesizing, and I play mainly hard rock and classic blues rock, but I also play some metal, jazz and fusion.

Ideally I'd like to avoid modeling amps like the vox AD series and roland cubes, as I don't need all of the features. I just want something with a nice clean tone, and a fairly good overdrive.

cheers

Blackheart bh-5?...but you would have to get an overdrive pedal if you want to get some gain on it.

You play "mainly hard rock and classic blues rock, but I also play some metal, jazz and fusion" and want to avoid modeling? Good luck unless your next thread is a pedal thread.

eeh that would be tough to do with a small amplifier. are you talking like a 112 combo or something? or smaller, because all that comes to mind is the Krank rev jr. and that might not do jazz exuberently.

EDIT: there is also the orange tiny terror combo

My main amp is a Cornford Harlequin 6 watt handbuilt valve combo. The only controls are volume (preamp) bass, treble and master. I occasionally use a tubescreamer to tighten up the drive for a tight metal tone but apart from that it handles everything. I don't see why I would need 12 different amp models and 12 different effects to do the same job my main amp does already.
