Well its been about 10 years and it is now time for a new amp. I need to replace a Johnson Marquis JM120 amp and a Fender Deville. I do about 7 to 10 shows a month. playing mostly rock cover tunes and lots of blues. Must be a combo amp. There is no limit on the price. I already have a couple in mind but I am curious as to what others would choose? Thanks!!

If it was me and I were gigging that often I'd concider the Peavey Classic 50 (I have the 30 btw) as a 2x12 or 4x12
or rather Hughes and Kettner Statesman QUAD EL84

I'd go for the H&K though since it's a bit lighter and a more modern amp.
There's a dual 6L6 combo if you rather have that.

But if money was no issue, handwired Matchless! DC-30 is probably the sweetest of them all. The Independence also seem nice with a bit more gain if that's on the wishlist.

Do you like Marshalls? Maybe TSL601 could be a good option, good cleans, separate reverb for clean and drive channels, 1 clean, 2 drive channels.. There's also 602 version with 2x12 celestion wolverine speakers.

There is no limit on the price? Hmmm, you can buy mine, it is yours for 1 million tongue.gif
But seriously, I am not really familiar with combos, I never had one, but with a Marshall or a Boogie you can't really go that wrong I guess.

Check out the Fender Supersonic or the Mesa Boogie Lonestar. Also check out the Mesa Boogie Stiletto Ace combo. Additionally, check out the combo version of the Marshall JVM. Every guitar magazine raves about all these amps.

Since you're playing alot of blues, I'd lean toward the 6L6 powered amps such as the Lonestar or Supersonic. I've heard alot of good stuff about the Supersonic such as how it sounds like a Lonestar!

And you might consider the Mesa Boogie Mark IV, a studio monster.

I'd recommend that you check out the Mesa Boogie website to check out all the combo amp possibilities. There's alot to choose from...all good.

I have owned a Supersonic before but had to sell it due to the fact that I had to crank it real loud to get the sound I wanted out of it. Not good For my Apartment, but my situation has changed since. I'm actually leaning more towards that again. That was a great amp. I'm going to check out Mesa's again though. Parker sounds great through the supersonic.

Hey Thanks for the input all!!
