Hi, I am planning the purchase of a big rig. After thinking much about it, several things appeared clear to me : - solid state amps sound a bit too "flat" - all-tube amps sound great but they are fragile and heavy, and their maintenance cost is high I figured out I'd take the intermediary, with a tube preamp and MOSFET power section. I need an amp that is very versatile, but : - I never slap and don't need crispy highs - I need solid low-end since I essentially play 5-strings (MM SR5) - The amp should suit for many styles : pop, rock, blues, etc. No slappy funk, no jazz. At last, I want high wattage, not to play louder, but to have a well definited tone at high level without clipping. I selected a few amps for that, and I'd like to have your opinions. Some amps you'd be thinking of may be missing : that's just because they are almost impossible to get here in Europe. Others are also missing because I tried them and didn't like them. Thanks in advance !
