Hello Gang. I'm starting an exploratory committee for the purposes of a possible run for the office of New Ampage. I currently own a late 80's Deluxe and Vox AC30CC1. I do also have an early '80's Super Champ that sounds amazing but it ain't a gigging amp. I'm looking for something that can give me good clean headroom as well as nice, crisp overdrive that doesn't flub out in the low end. Therefore, I've been eyeballing 30W and above. I suppose I prefer a combo but a head and cab is not ruled out. With one exception, I've always owned combos so I guess I'm used to them but the idea of having the freedom of mixing a head with different cabs is intriguing. Here's what I've been spying... Carr Lincoln. I know... only 22W, but it sounds great. I've watched a few demos, notably those by Rodney Gene and Lance Keltner. I messaged both and they say it's got enough volume to cut through in a band before breakup, but I need to test one in person. The good news is there's one in stock nearby. The bad news is that Carr has discontinued the model, they may become scarce. Mesa Boogie LoneStar and LoneStar Special. I have to find somewhere to test them and while I've read up on both models and watched a lot of YT demos, I'm still not 100% sure of the differences. I do get that in a stock config, the LoneStar is 6L6 based but can be loaded with EL34's, while the Special is EL34. Fuchs ODS-II and ODS CLASSIC. Here's where enter what I guess could be called "Dumble Territory," whatever that means. They say if it doesn't sound like a Fender, Marshall or Vox, but sounds great, it's Dumble. What I do know is sound pretty darn great in the demos I've watched seem to have a unique quality of lots of tweaking options still allowing for great tone without the need to spend an exorbitant amount of time to dial in what you want. They offer tons of clean headroom with supposedly excellent punch and definition and are fabulous pedal platforms. Two Rock Classic Reverb Signature. Another Dumble style machine with plenty of headroom and cool options for light tweaking an fine tuning. The Wild Card. Wampler Bravado. Purported to be the ultimate pedal platform, this amp has thick cleans for days and supposedly allows any pedal to shine and relay the tone it was designed to produce. I'd love to hear what you all have to say in terms of experience/opinions of these amps.
