Hello, excellent people of TFB. I'm new on here, after some time as a lurker, and I'd appreciate some advice on amp choice.
My dark and angry moods are well covered by a Mesa Studio preamp, a Victory V30mkII and a PRS MT15 (absolutely incredible amp for the money) but I need something for more fun and joyful moments, when I attempt to channel my inner Kossoff, Page and Young. So, I'm after superlead classic rock crunchiness here and no need for any sort of modern versatility, really. It's for home use and hopefully gigs again one day... I live in a detached place far enough from neighbours with a very tolerant wife, so volume is not a problem. I'm not much of a pedal or effects guy and I wouldn't want to use much more than an occasional splash of reverb in the loop, with all the gain and tone coming from the amp, really - maybe a bit of boost or fuzz up front now and then. I've narrowed it down to the Victory Sheriff models (22 or 44) and the Marshall Studio vintage (20w mini 1959SLP). Has anyone on here owned and/or played both? Does anyone have any helpful feedback or advice, based on experience with these amps?
Many thanks in advance!
