i might catch hell for saying this, but i picked up a x100b carvin from the sacramento store that was closing down. bought it new on a whim for a whopping 449 bucks. it's 2 channel, all tube (6l6), digital reverb, switchable boost/reverb/loop/channel, switchable for el34s, active 5-band eq for either channel, effects loop switch for -10, 0, +4db. the cleans are to die for and i've yet to get a bad sound out of it. all while driving 2 evm12l's in a soldano sized 2x12. this thing's bang-for-the-buck is unreal! i keep in my rehearsal room so i wouldn't have to leave the SLO there or lug it back and forth. it doesn't sound exactly like a marshall, but i can run the gain up to 7+ when loud and it doesn't turn to mud like a marshall! i'm really surprised to say it, but i really like the dang thing!

If i could'nt play a Soldano it would be a Marshall 2203 with a Soldano Hotmod. grin
Or a NMV Marshall cranked to a loadbox for ulimate fattness with a vintage vibe. cool

After some heavy Warren Haynes influence, I played and really like PRS amps! I'd still like to try a Cesar Diaz amp, but the PRS was surprisingly good! It could get a really good vintage late 60s sound out of it. I was impressed.

Bogner ecstasy or a heavily modded marshall plexi. David Bray amps is doing some really cool stuf.

It would be interesting what would be available if not for Soldano, but that is another topic.

I would probably go with one of the CAA 100 series or maybe a Fortin. A Bogner 101B or Cornford MK50H ll would be options as well.

Ah there's an array of stuff i'd probably use, but i could see me switching between them a lot, At present, the HR50+ is my only amp and other than an SLO i don't really want another amp with the exception of something superclean like a fender, but then again i don't really do much with that kind of sound.

But for arguments sake, would probably be something in the Hot rodded marshall realm, splawn, maybe a friedman (if i could afford one and could find a uk dealer), like the sound of the cornfords too. I do not like bognors, boogies, diezels, Kranks etc etc, although used to like the old VHT's now Fryettes.
