What sound am I looking for???

I always thought I was a Fender amp kinda guy because I always go for clean tones. However I've owned a bunch of them over the years and always felt like I was missing the tone I was looking for. Well because of circumstances I ended up with a Bugera V55HD and a Line 6 cab and it's tone is pretty much the voice I've been looking for. Now I know the Bugera is a bargain amp, but I really don't know what amp family it's tone belongs in. So if I was going to go find an amp that is "THE" voice I'm hearing in my Bugera, what would it be?

A buddy of mine says the same thing He has a Bugera and loves the clean, surf-like tones he gets. As far as what style of amp the V55 is molded after I'm not quite sure, but I believe the design is closer to a Marshall than a Fender.

Thanks, it's definitely not voiced like a Fender. But it's no where near as "thick" as the Marshall sound. There's a ton of clean headroom, I've never played a Vox I wonder if the sound is close to those?

From Bugera's description...

"BUGERA captures the stunning sound of the 1960s with the V55, a combo whose modern touches put a wide palette of vintage tones at your fingertips. With a proud pair of 6L6 power valves in the output stage, the V55 bathes your guitar in clean California sunshine."

Sounds like it's based on a 60's Fender?

Here's the info on the preamp:

"Authentic 2-channel preamp design from the '60s featuring 3 x 12AX7 valves—everything from purring blues to mind-blowing crunch..."

It also has a switch to go from triode to pentode operation...don't know if that makes a difference in what we're discussing though.
