Generally speaking but not always true.
"Fender" clean tone comes from 6l6's, Marshall crunch tone comes from EL-34's :wave:

And thinking on it for a few hours. These are two amps which I feel get both the great cleans and great crunch...albeit incorporated into one single channel. Get either of these...and a good volume pedal...and you're good to go. Trainwreck clones are PERFECT for this sort of thing too. I don't know of anything that gets both those tones separately in a two channel.
Bassmans get great crunch...with 6L6's... And Hiwatts get great cleans...with EL34's... :idk:

The Peavey Classic series also does this quite well.

:lol: I don't know why, but that was really funny.
Yes they do, but they seem to do better with the Fender thing, even though a lot of Riveras have EL-34's.
I'll tell you what though, the clean channel on my old Rivera Rake was a thing of beauty.

Have you played one of them? I always thought Carol-Ann was more in the smoother sounding "dumble" camp from the clips I've heard (though that could be more due to the players :lol.

I will definitely have to check one of them out then.
Why yes, I have. On the gain channel, the Carol-Ann's are more of a Marshall-meets-Trainwreck, if anything? They will do "dumble-esque" type tones if you want them to, but they will also do wicked Marshall tones if you want em to (case in point, Dan Spitz uses 2 of em!) But the cleans on this amp are truly amazing!! Beautiful, shimery, chimey cleans like the best Fender you've ever heard. Super 3-D sounding. A very underrated amp in play tonal category.
