1 woodshedder 1 year ago So, I want an amp. Can of worms... The problem. Versatility. Like most,I’m sure, I have a wide and varied palette of musical tastes. I enjoy playing/butchering bluesy over driven Rich Robinson/ Marc Ford type stuff right on into clean Herschel Yatovitz/ James Wilsey space, and occasionally straying into some rockabilly. I have been playing through a Yamaha THR10c for the last few years, and it is a pretty awesome piece of kit. If you’ve never tried one, you should. What it doesn’t do is get loud. Not blow my windows out loud, just ‘feel it inside me’ 10 to 15 watt, play it at home kinda loud. I tend to reach for my 6120GA most of the time, I’ll switch it up with my 5120, Strat, or Teles. I have test driven several amps, but never get to open them in the store to really get a feel for them when pushed. What I’m after is something that sounds thick and can cover the cleans and get dirty. My budget is in the mass produced segment of the market not the boutique side. So, a grand in USD is about as far as I can go.I would really appreciate some input.
