    Personally, I like a 3-channel amp setup, so I can get (pushed-)clean, medium rock, and hard rock/ metal. Then pretty much leave the settings.

      I guess I'd just have to make a non-boosted JCM800 work.

        I could make do with a Hughes & Kettner ATS Sixty hybrid combo. There is a deliciously liquid lead tone in there that I could play all day.

          Luckily it doesn't have to be so...

          Maybe my Bugie (Bugera ) 333XL Infinium. I don't record with it at home much for some reason, but it's my go to amp for messing around on the couch & jamming with & I've probably carted it along to more gigs than any of my other ones...I guess it's my old faithful. Almost never use any pedals with it.. the onboard reverb is more than I need. Sounds godly & contrary to popular opinion it's been reliable as ****. Never once let me down

          Here it is in a raw/rough mix of one of my band's tracks (no post production)

            Played one of my PRS Amps outdoors for the first time Saturday night. It was under a tent on a sloppy rainy night so I took the little MT 15 out with my little Egnater Tweeker 1/12 running a old 90's GT 12 75 not the Archon with my 2/12. Just pulled it out of the trunk set it up with everything at noon on the controls and got this.
            Considering how much better the Archon sounds head to head with the MT 15 it reinforced my decision that it absolutely has to be the Archon for me. Played out Friday night with the Boogie Subway in a small room and it was nice, Sunday morning with the Boogie F 30 and then Saturday with the MT 15 recorded all 3 sets . The PRS amps for me just have the feel and tone I have always wanted in my head but could never get in real life from anything till now.

              I could think of a whole lot of worse ways to go.
              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.

                Rivera TBR-1SL, which I've owned for over 20 years and will own forever.
                And then...someone else will own it.
                Because I'll be dead then.
                But not until then.
                How long is forever, exactly?

                    Well, at the moment....

                    My Mesa Stiletto Deuce has been giving me exactly that for a few years.

                    Diode Rectifier
                    Bold Mode
                    50 watt
                    Lead Channel
                    Tite Gain setting

                    To be fair - this amp has: Diode/Tube Rectifiers, Bold/Spongy modes, 50/100watt power, and two channels each with three modes: Clean/Fat Clean/Crunch, Crunch/Tite/Fluid Gain options. That's 24 combinations of clean channel or gain channel. So if you can't find SOMETHING that works for you...

                      Ok, now, according to the OP, choose one of those combinations to live with as your signature sound. Without any pedals.

                        The best amp I ever tried was a Soldano Hot Rod 50+, and although I didn't get to spend much time with it, I suspect that it would do the trick. The Marshall JVM series, which is chock full with useful features in its own, would also work, as would a rig based around an ADA MP-1.

                            Mode Four.

                            But I could also be happy with JVM, TSL, egnater Armageddon, or even a 6505

                              My Marshall JVM410H full stack with G12T-75 loaded 4x12 cabinets works for me.
