I basically am looking for 3 channels. Clean, crunch, lead. I don't need super high gain, but do like a fluid lead sound, a nice deep crunch, and a nice pristine clean, through just a hair of breakup. I tend to like big thick sounds, not a ton of highs, and I hate fizziness.
I play a variety of styles of music. I would like about 50 watts. I gig two or three times per month.
I have played a Carvin Legacy 3, and liked it, but thought the voicing a little too dark for me. I had an EVH 5150 III 50 watt and really really liked it, but had trouble balancing the clean and crunch. I tried a tubemeister 36 and hated it. It was just way way way too fizzy in the Lead channel. I liked the Blackstar HT stuff, but have trouble cutting through live with it.
I use greenbacks in a 412 and private jacks in a 212... Maybe it's the speakers I don't like and not the amps?
I don't know... Anything else I should try?
