Solid-State amp

Does anyone here suggest a good solid-state amp for playing small gigs or rehersals? Thanks!

How much are you thinking of spending?
What style of music do you play?
What size of amp are you looking for?, 20W?, 50W?, 100W?

I've heard the Marshall G100RCD head is really awesome and it's completely solid-state.

I wouldn't suggest a solid-state amp for distortion, but if you are looking for a clean amp, the Roland Jazz Chorus amplifier is one of the best and is solid state. *Not too expensive either.

I have always been a big fan of the Line6 amps. *I would think a Flextone 1x12 would cover all your needs nicely, plus you can add a 1x12 cab if you need. *Don't let people fool you into thinking you need a 1/2 stack or a lotta watts. *My 100 watt Line6 AX2-212 never saw a volume above 4 in two years of gigging, and we played LOUD sometimes. *Give them a try. *The built in effects will probably be all you ever need especially if you get the floor board (Wah and Volume) *Complete package and relatively inexpensive.

Well, how about the Marshall AVT50 or 100. They hybrid amps (have tube in preamp) but give the comfort of an all solid state amp, plus a warmer sound. They are realy cool amps.

If you are looking for clean sounds only then I second Roland Jazz Chorus. Another all solidstate good amp is Galien Krueger.

I'd go with the Marshall, 'cause I think they are the better bang for the buck.

Good luck!

The Ampeg SS70-C is one kick ass amp. Find the 2x10 combo used and you won't be sorry. I used to have 2 of these and ran them in stereo for my practice/gig rig and loved the sound. I'd put one in front of me used as a stage monitor and one in the back for stage sound.

Awesome little amp and....they can be had cheap.

The Marshall AVT Valvestate series is an excellent Solid State amp and is great value for money.

They offer 20W, 50W, 100W, etc so you can basically get the size you require.

Well... I think I should have been more specific in my question.

I need a 100% solid state amp (no preamp tubes!! I already own a Fender Roc Pro 700) for clean tones only. I'm getting distortion from a BOSS GT-3 or a Zoom GFX-4.

It's just for playing at small places, *so I think a 65W-80W will be sufficient.
