What is a good amp for jems/uv's

I am looking into a new amp for my jem and uv, I am considering a combo and have tried out the TSL122, next I would like to try out a mesa boogie road king combo. Are there any other good amps out there for the jem/uv. combo or not please fill me in on what the best amp is.

Your best bet is to take your guitar with you to the shop you plan on buying from (or just annoying the workers) and try out as many amps as you can and try to get a feel for what you like and how it responds.

I play through all mesa amps (Triaxis into a 20/20 and a Studio .22 combo) and that suits me fine, I also liked my old ADA rig and now there is a revived enthusiasm in these preamps as they are very versitile and upgradable now.

It all boils down to preference.

You'll have to haul your gear into the shop and check em out. We can recommend amps to look for in the shops, but you'll need to fill us in on your playing style, musical tastes and playing situation. Makes a heapo difference...no such thing as the "best" amp.
