I'm looking for an amp that'll most likely be used mostly in my home for jamming and recording. I'm sure my daughter'll end up using it alot too. I was considering a Hot Rod Deluxe or DeVille, or one of the Carvin Vintage series. But I'm also drawn a bit toward the Tech 21 Trademark 60 because of it's flexability and the notion that it'll always work when I turn it on, unlike some other amps I have. It will be used for a variety of music styles and guitars. My main question is reliability. The Fenders and Tech 21's are at my local GC, so I can play them side by side, before I make a choice. But the Carvins are not as accessable. So If anyone has any experience with them, I'd appreciate your feedback before ordering one from the other side of the world.
