    Mainly looking at an ampeg...because I love ampeg.
    Anyway, I don't really care about wattage so 100 vs 300 doesn't really matter. Wondering what te diff between a v-4 and a svt are. is it that the v-4 has a master?

    I just want to be able to get a good dirty sounds AND a good clean sound.

    Is this possible? Do you use the low gain input for dirt and the high gain for clean... I have a channel switcher so I should be fine.
    I really just need to find one or 10 to try out but I can't.
    So maybe this should be a "how do you run your all tube head" thread.
  2. You can check out the new peavey heads that should be coming around this year. They have two channels (one being clean the other an overdrive channel).

    I believe Sweetwater has them on order. You could check with them to see when they are due in. They're going for $899 if I recall correctly.

    my Peavey Classic 400 is a true dual channel. The new ones should be too

    The Fender 300Pro is all tube with two channels.
  7. Trace V4 or V8 if you can get one! The new valve Laney looks pretty impressive too... Lots of options.
  8. The ampeg VR has two channels, but they are not footswicthable (however you spell that, LOL).
