I currently have a Mesa Boogie DC-5. I really love the amp and the sounds that I'm able to get with it, but it's too damn loud for my needs. I'm looking to sell it and get a modelling amp for versatility, home recording, and some live use with a PA. I'm interested in getting sounds similar to John Petrucci and George Lynch. So far I've researched the Johnson Marquis JM60, Tech 21 Trademark 60, and Rocktron Replitone 112. From the sound clips I heard on Tech 21's site, the Trademark doesn't seem to have enough balls and gain to achieve the sound I'm after. I haven't heard clips of the other 2, so I don't have any real idea of where to go on either one. I am sticking with the 1X12 configuration for size and cost limitations. Oh, I have owned the Yamaha DG112, and while that amp totally impressed me with it's clean and light distorted sounds, it didn not have enough gain. Thanks.
