OK, so I'm an old guy. Only play at home now. Lost half my hearing by playing honky tonks, bars, high school dances and town and county fairs for several years in the 60s with a cranked Fender Dual Showman. What I want now is an amp that I can open up at home volume without "she who must be obeyed" and the teenage and older kids yelling "dad, turn it down!". I play ( or should say I'm relearning) blues and moldy oldie rock . At my disposal between my son and myself, I have a tele, 2 strats, PRS SE, Gibson melody maker,my 1969 SG and a new Carvin TLK (hybrid strat/tele, my new favorite) to choose from. I currently have a Brian Cox 5FI circuit hand wired "champ" with an 8 inch weber which is fabulous but still too loud when I get into tube overdrive and I miss reverb and the full sound of a 12" speaker. I don't like pedals and it needs to be simple to dial in. In the last couple of years I've also had a couple of Fender SCXDs (sold one, gave the other to my 18 year old son, too many effects and models and even though tubes, the digital parts sounded phony to me), a Fender Blues Junior ( didn't like it, hard to dial in), an Epiphone valve junior stack with an attenuator (but still no reverb), and a couple of Vox modeling amps, What I want: 1. Reverb. (don't need or want any other effects). 2. A 12" speaker to get a fuller sound. 3. Tubes only. 4. Low watt or a built in attenuator or variable output dial so I can get natural tube overdrive a low volume. 5. A volume/overdrive control. Am I asking too much, or is there something out there I haven't come across yet? Thinking about a Carvin Vintage 16 but may still be too loud. Checked out the Fender Mustang series this week, too phony and fiddly. Revisited a Fender Blues Junior III and had the same impression as I had before, something about it I just don't like. Am I just being too picky or should I just get used to pedals and stick with the Cox 5FI?
