I've been pumping a lot of you guys for suggestions lately, and I'm thankful; however, every time I think I'm getting somewhere with an amp, I find something inherently wrong or disappointing with it... Which I may just have to accept, however I wanted to give this one more shot before I get out there and start playing through them all... Is there a 1x12 amp, combo or not, that does/has the following?


1) 2 Channels

2) Spring Reverb

3) Vibrato

4) Gig-able Capability (as in Class A/AB?)

5) Doesn't sound like {censored}?

6) Budget of up to $1000


Thanks guys, and I really appreciate the help... This is a daunting decision for me
:facepalm::confused:

 

It's a lot to ask for that budget. You can find some Fender amps that will do most of what you want but I supposed that when you say "2 channels" you mean clean/distortion and not "normal/vibrato" so that rules out most of the Fenders I'd recommend.

 

Then you have amps like the Mesa DC-3/F-30 or Peavey Classic 30 which would do most of it, but no vibrato.

 

If you really need an amp that will do it ALL and do it exceptionally well, the amp you really need is the Tone King Imperial. Look it up, I am 100% sure that would be THE amp for you. The problem is, price: $3500.

 

So realistically I think you have 3 options here:

 

- Get a good Fender amp (Deluxe Reverb Reissue for example) and an OD pedal.

 

- Get a 2-channel amp like a Peavey Classic 30 or Mesa F-30 and a Tremolo/Vibrato pedal

 

- expand your budget and look into boutique offers.

4) Gig-able Capability (as in Class A/AB?) (overated)

5) Doesn't sound like {censored}? (check)

Well, what do you know, I just happen to have one of these to sell!

Check out Rivera's offerings. They are super cool amps that you can pick up used within your budget. I have played maybe 4 or 5 of their models (some of which I don't think are made anymore) and they were all super cool and very usable. Definitely a working musician's amp. Can definitely get them for below $1000 used.

Another vote for a Rivera with a Vibrato/Tremolo pedal here.

I'd probably just get a Dano chicken salad (can find them real cheap but they sound damn good) and rehouse it for my vibrato needs, and then get a Traynor YCS50 combo.

 

The Traynor has a REAL spring reverb that sounds great and it is 15w/50w selectable. Comes with a nice V30 too.

 

Here is one for $550
