There are hotrod deluxes in back lines in major venues all over the US for a reason. They work. They have long since solved the taper issue with the volume pot and have long solved the channel switching issue with the replacement of the 90 degree wire bend resistors to a softer bend that doesn't heat up. It's an economical no nonsense amp with crystalline tone for cleans.

I've had a HRDLX, the same one for 22 years and never an ounce of issue with it other than a tube replacement and maintenance of pots.

My favorite is a Roland Jazz Chorus, those are so clear and clean, but a Fender Twin is awesome to me too, so warm while clean.

Smith357 just said what I was thinking. The difference between running through one 12" speaker and running through two 12" speakers is amazing. I once ran a 25 watt Fender solid state amp though a Peavey cabinet that had two 12" speakers and it sounded so good, a keyboard player friend decided that he wanted it more than I did, so I let him buy it from me.

I lust for, but have absolutely no need for a HRDLX matching extension cab. They look just like the amp but are a speaker only. An extra 12" speaker. Overkill on my part but that would be a nice pro rig...Speaking of HRDLX's, I took mine for it's weekly warm up and get hot spin yesterday. The tone from that thing with a Gretsch Projet, and a Electro Harmonix Memory Toy delay with some reverb was to die for. I usually play a VOX DA-15 Modeler at home.. I told the old lady THIS is why I keep a tube amp!!! She agreed..

I certainly love my '59 Bassman Reissue LTD. It's got as much clean headroom as you could ever want. Perhaps a touch "bright" and trebly for jazz though. I mean you can roll the Presence knob down and dial in the sound you want. With 4 10" speakers it projects VERY well too, really fills a room. HUGE sweet spot in terms of just listening to it.

Yeah the Bassman is definitely "glassy" but it's a bit of a smokey glass, if that makes sense.

Absolutely agree, I have a JC55 and it's the most beautiful sounding CLEAN amp I've ever owned. It's the reason you'll still find a JC120 hanging around in most pro studio gear closets. When you want super clean they are unparalleled. If your a SS denier though Sixstrings suggestion of a Twin would be the perfect clean tube amp. Not to mention EXTRA LOUD if you want.
