  • amp for blues/jazz

    My friend is looking for a new amp. Styles that are most important are "a fat bluesy tone, jazz, and also classic rock and rockabilly"
    Feel free too recommend anything, but a decent price range would be cool. He wants to upgrade his fender, its some sea green fender tube amp, its like 40 or 60 watts, idk what model, not a hr.

    Mmh....

    Vox AC15/30?
    Orange AD30/Rockerverb?

    All of these amps have enough warmth to do the Jazz thing too.

      He really likes santana too. Ill definitely let on about the vox, I was going to add mesa mark I or ii, maybe a lonestar, classic 30, but I am hardly the authority on the subject of blues.

        If he loves Santana, I'd recommend the rockerverb then.

        Played low on the clean channel, just before the break up, he'll get lovely jazz tones.
        And it's a beautiful blues amp and does all sorts of rock. And loads of gain for syrupy leads.

        Lovely roganic tone.

          What does he not like about his current amp?

          I think Blues Jr, Peavey Delta Blues, etc... might be of his interest as well...
          Jazz is normally played on super clean amps while Blues usually requires some nice warm tones with sometimes a little dirt as well.

          That being said if he wants to upgrade his 40 - 60 Watt tube amp, the Blues Jr. or the Delta might be considered a downgrade. I would really like to know what he's playing right now.

            His amp now has decent cleans but they're too dark. The od on the other hand is horrid, the overall tone isn't the greatest.
            So vox ac
            Rockerverb
            Hrd
            Bj (lol)
            Mark i/ii
            C30

              Blackface Fender. Pick your wattage from a Princeton Reverb up to a Twin.

              Personally I don't think a Deluxe Reverb can be beaten

                  there are few, if any, more "blues" amps than this.

                  even if you don't do blues music, the Peavey Delta Blues amps are f#$n killer amps regardless.................
