I really want a 1x12 amp that's loud and clean. It seems like a lot of 1x12 combos are el84s or EL34s. I'm no expert in the differences. I was just reading this: http://mesaboogie.com/news/2010/08/6l6-vs-el-34-feel-the-power-of-your-amps-power-section/ Pretty interesting. Can I get the clean headroom I need for country from el34s? If I could id have a lot more options. I've been looking at mostly mesa combos because the fender 1x12s I've looked at have been underwhelming to say the least. Everyone says to get a DRRI (700$ used) and mod/switch speakers and trannys to get it where I need. I don't want to have to put a bunch of money into an amp I just spent 700$ on. There are several mesa combos I can get for around 500$ used that have reverb, graphic EQ and 30w-50w of mesa power. Fender can't touch that. Right? Thanks. Gary.
