I sold my triple rec a good while back and pre-ordered an invective, but the release date has been pushed back so many times, I'm moving on. I liked my mesa triple, but just wanted to try something new after 10+ years. I have a few amps in mind, however, almost all of them I can't really play in person. I'm looking for the following features. Master volume (or playable at bedroom volumes) Series effects loop Multi-channel remote switchable (MIDI, latching, or a cable solution (i.e. BTPA din to TRS cable) Something that plays well with my mesa recto 4x12 cab I tried a few amps out before pre-ordering the invective. Had a Savage 120 for a few weeks, and it was just too dry/sterile/compressed for my tastes. Not really the right tone or feel for me. I had an 5153 EL34 stealth, I actually really liked the cleans/gain on the amp. However, I had to almost max the presence to get a decent bedroom tone. There was also an annoying hum I couldn't get rid of with a gate before the amp, in the loop, or both. Just like in this video. I'm interested in the following, or open to some suggestions. Friedman BE I like the idea of being able to cover a lot of ground with this amp. I do jam a fair bit of 60's/70's rock in addition to the heavy stuff. Seems like this amp may get me the best of both worlds. Probably not the most fire breathing gain machine, but boosted it may do the trick. I've gotten some good "metal" tones out of the model on my axe fx. Bogner Uberschall/Twin Jet No experience with these amps aside from word of mouth. The twin jet's lack of a true clean channel is somewhat concerning. Not sure if it can pull off a decent clean or not. I've read quite a few reviews saying you basically need an Uberkab to make this amp work. Also some concerns regarding the FX loop, which I would definitely utilize. A lot of the discussion and reviews I have found are several years old. 5153 6L6 Stealth I'd for sure try this amp again, but I think I would prefer the 6L6 version over the EL34 that I had. Possibly I just had a dud? Great sound, and I like the features. PRS Archon Another, I'm just going off of clips and word of mouth. This also may cover a bit more ground like the Friedman BE. Any comments/advice are appreciated.
