I play guitar and have been playing for a long,long time
I'm searching for a new amp.
Thought I should check in.

Enjoy the search :), what type of sound are you after? What application will it be used?
I am enjoying the search.
At the age of 64 I need an amp that's easy to lug around.
Mostly home playing,but I'd like to get out again and jam with some friends and possibly do some gigs.
I like cleans with edge of breakup.
I have always played tube amps,but have also considered solid state,due to the weight factor.
The new Mesa Fillmore 50 has my interest.
50 watts,45 lbs.
It ticks all my boxes,but is going to be around $2500 tax in...ouch!
I really like the cleans of a Lonestar Special,but at 59 lbs. I can't do it.
On the other end of the spectrum I tried out a Roland Blues Cube Stage and was quite impressed.
A Blues Cube Artist could also be a possibility.
I'd prefer buying a quality North American amp such as Mesa,but my budget is also a factor.
