    My Peavey C50 is heavy, my Jet City 20w weighs about the same as the Mustang 3 I donated to my church, but doesn't really do clean tones.

    Whichever amp I end up with should be <35lbs and work for informal jams and home recording.

    Which, if any of the amps in the title would you select? Something else perhaps?

    P.S. While I very much enjoy the sounds I get out of tweed Blues Jrs, they don't feel distinct enough from the amps I already own to justify the purchase.

    Well. Of those 3,i went with a DRRI. But mostly because I wanted cleans and something to take pedals better than my orange. I don't know what kind of sound you're looking for, but they're all good amps.

    I went with 68 DR which took 3 before I got a good one with no hiss.

    While you wait for the conversation to start you may also choose to read some of the 1000 or so posts already camparing the 3 amps.
    Some of the dozens of youtube videos comparing them might be helpful. Its like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. Which do you like?
