hey ya'll, as much as i like playing older style circuits, lately i've been wondering if it might be time to upgrade my amp to something quieter and more modern, electronics wise. i still want to stay all tube but the marshall is just so noisy. i'm getting tons of hiss and pop out of the thing. and i have grown weary of constantly servicing it. also the effects loop sucks! i would definitely consider it a bonus if the next amplifier has a better effects loop. my only other criteria for the new amp would be that it has that tighter marshall style bass response. a Fender twin reverb or a deluxe probably would not work for my style of music. can't have the spongy bass thing happening. i heard good things about blackstar, but i have not read much about their build quality, physically speaking. i'm pretty hard on my equipment so i need something that can take the punishment of being moved around a lot. has anyone else on the forum went on a similar quest lately? again, i'm hoping to stay somewhat within the arena of the classic EL34 marshall sound, but it does not need to be any particular brand. i would even consider higher gain options or channel switching as long as the clean sounds are not trash. any advice?
