    Let the arguing begin

    Looking for something simple with a good clean that plays well with pedals. I also need a line out.

    Hoping for under $500

    Looking at:

    Roland GA 112

    Roland Cube 80XL

    Boss Katana mark II 100 watt

    Try a Hughes and Kettner Ampman Classic. The vintage channel is to die for, the rock channel is ok, a lot fussier to get a good sound. But the vintage channel is glorious.
    Built in preamp and power amp boosts, effects loop, and DI out with or without cab simulators. Built in noise gate and the cab sim works on the headphone output.
    I’m running mine through a cheap V30-loaded cab and I’m grinning every time I play it.

    For cleans and a pedal platform nothing beats a Blackface or Silverface Fender or clone.
