If you really like Fendery clean tones and you like a good Marshall crunch the question is would you get an amp that does do Fendery clean tones and a decent Marshall type crunch tone or get an amp that does awesome Marshall crunch and overall good clean tone? Without pedals.Thanks.

Had the stage 60 great tones but biasing looked like a big hassle and fixing the amp in case it broke looked like a nightmare

Daisycutters dont seem like they would fit my need.Im kind of partial to 6L6's and an effects loop.Though EL34's might do the trick.

As the recent recipient of a Peavey Classic 50, I say give one a shot. At least try it out. Found cheap in the used market and damn near indestructible.

If you must go the boutique route, Rude Mood.

Fender tweed Bassman is the precursor to Marshall amps, so it can be considered to cover a lot of tonal territory.

JTM-45 gets my vote, being based on the Bassman (weird), it really doesn't sound like a typical Marshall clean, to my ears at least. Fat and warm on normal and crystal to ice pick clear highs on high treble channel. And of course if you crank it you are in Angus Young's front yard.

Mt Rivera HAS both a Silver and Black faced Fender on one ch (designed by Paul Rivera formerly of Fender Amp fame), and a darn good Marshall, with a hint of Mesa on the other Ch.

And for SS, my Blackstar ID:TVP 60 can do both decently as well.

IMHO, if you want both, and don't want two amps, you get an amp that has the Clean Tone. You can always add pedals to get that crunch dirt tone you want, or close to it. But, you can't get a great clean tone if it isn't there to begin with.
