The singer/rhythm guitarist in my band is looking for a new amp to upgrade from her Ibanez TBX (finally, thank God...). She's looking mostly for a good clean channel and nice medium gain tones as well as a good sound for plugging in her electro-acoustic guitar. I've already recommended her these:

Peavey Classic 30 - great, I love my Classic 50 so this seems good, although I'd be worried about having to mix two amps with the same voicing in a band setting
Crate V30 - my friend just got one of these and it sounds great, although not as good as the classic, especially on the clean channel
Fender Hot Rod or Blues Junior - great cleans, but she'll definitely need an OD pedal
Peavey Valveking - would definitely have enough gain so she won't need a pedal, but I still find these a bit overrated

Any other suggestions? Her budget can go up to about $400. I'll tell her to buy used of course.

umm well I sorta like the Orange rockerverbs I own the rv100. For a Acousitc guitar though yikes! umm well what I would do is get a hi-gain amp, and then get tube pre-amp. Bi-pass the hi-gain features your good to go. Its always nice to have a hi-gain amp though incase you decide to get a tad heavier. Besides what you really want is versatility.

Rockerverbs are nice, but overpriced. And acoustic guitars sound nice through the clean channel of a good amp, although eventually she'll probably get a good DI box.

why don't people like the drive channel on fender hotrods? i think it's fine the way it is and unique. anyway, i think the hotrod would be a great choice
main rig:
MIM Tele->VP Jr.->CryBaby->Fuzz Factory->TS808->Carbon Copy->Phase 90->TU-3->Vox AC30CCH+Avatar 212 and Peavey VTM60+Marshall 1960A

Fuzz...It's wonderful and horrible and beautiful and repulsive and so many things all at once.

^It's a tad muddy, but I agree. It's not bad if you EQ it right.


And I still have to try a 333XL, every video I've seen has been amazing. She has a job, I'll see if she can put more money forward.
