    Mesa Mark something... or an AC30.
    "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

        Still no word on whether a footswich is considered a "pedal". If it is, does that mean one's choice is limited to a single channel amp?

            Of everything I have ever owned or played so far it would have to be a 100 watt PRS Archon. Solid usable cleans and that fluid expressive crunch side is just SO addictive. Owned my 50 just over a year now and it still blows me away every time I play through it.

              If it is would be a Marshall JCM 900 MK III Dual Master Volume head.

                One amp, no pedals. One tone, the amp can have 50 channels but you are using it for one tone. Your favorite tone. Straight amp, pick one.
                The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

                  Combo or head+cab, does it matter?

                    Same. I wish Marshall would reissue it.

                      This question bothers me.

                      I can get my sound pretty much with any amp and a Boss SD-1.

                      But I'm not allowed to use a pedal.

                      So it needs to be an amp with an extra gain stage and flexible EQ.

                      Without the SD-1, I think the best for me would be a Peavey JSX. I loved that amp until I realized I could get that sound from pretty much any amp by using an SD-1 pedal.

                        One amp, no pedals. I was initially thinking a head vs. combo when I created this thread but didn't specify it as such. We all have a favorite sound and an amp that provides that sound. What is it for you. In this case, channel switching is irrelevant. Master volume or no master volume is irrelevant. 50 or 100 watts, irrelevant. I know every detail accounts for the sound but et's just stick with the amp for this scenario.

                          I had used a Dirty Shirley when they first came out, and it was exceptional. I can see that happening.

                            I would have to say it would be my JCM 2000. But picking one tone would be tricky seeing that the amp has 4 distinct voices and many parameters within those voices. If I had to park it in one setting it would be the Lead 1 position which is a hot-rodded JCM 800 2203 tone.

                              Nice amp for sure! Did you ever pick up the pedal?

                                You can get a lot done with that sound.
