    What do you mean by character? Tonally? Cosmetically?

    +1 for the Ampeg B100R.

    Also, the GK MB115.

    Used to own the B100R and would definitely +1 its mention.

    The only reason I sold it was because it wasn't powerful enough. Damn fine amp, though.

    Tonally.
     
  12. Classic Trace Elliot is some bargain priced tone, bargain priced loud too.
     
  13. My back up Crate has character, in a its almost as big as a 210, lacks power and makes mud come through any cab kind of way:D

    Line 6 lowdown amps. I have a combo and it blows me away, got rid of all my ampeg heads and cabs for it.
