Well, while talking to my dad earlier discussing music gear and whatnot I realized that I am not really happy with my current clean tone, and want to find a preamp and use a small rack system for at least my "super clean" channel...a few extra channel options are a plus, but I realized I know about a LOT of boutique amps......none of them are really "clean" amps. Now don't get me wrong I fucking love the tone I get from my Mesa, especially my OD channel, and I love my clean channel as well..but its not really clean, but more gritty and pushed. I don't want to change these tones, just add something to get a Real clean tone as well.
I was eyeballing a Kitty Hawk M1 head earlier, but I really would prefer to have a preamp/poweramp setup, because I already will be carrying the Mesa, Cab, and a Rack...so i'd rather shove my clean/2nd amp into the rack case to save some space. Basically, looking for something Cheap, preferably tube, with Really good cleans. I would love to have a giant 666 cab, 999 head setup, but in reality I don't want to carry/hook up all that shit every show.... 1 head, rack amp/rack gear, pedal board, and 1 (eventually 2) cab(s) is more than enough.
Still to this day the Mesa Mark amps have my favorite clean tone. The triaxis rhythm 1 and rhythm 2 are just awesome, but I don't know if that's what you're looking for.
