I'm looking for a new amp. And I love the sound of a clean fender. I used to play hard rock. but now I like blues and alternative. A guy near my house is selling this one for $500. Is this a good price?

Hey Xanadu, is that the one on usedottawa? I thought about calling up the guy about it but I'm not really sure if it would be a lot better than my Peavey Classic 30. You might also want to check out the Traynor YCV40WR, that's being sold on OM. I know that one's been around for a month of so now and I thought I just saw it posted somewhere else again.

If you are looking for a good clean fender, I suggest a Deluxe Reverb Reissue. They sound great. Doesn't have distortion but it does go well with effects pedals.

yeah that's the one, and I live out in kinburn, so constance bay isnt that far away. I think I actually know the guy selling it. I was thinking about the traynors, What's OM? And im pretty sure that anything is better than the valvestate I've got now.

They have a decent clean channel, but the overdrive is regarded as pretty bad by most people (and I agree). I see used Traynor YCV40 or 40WR's for the same price and they are a much better sounding amp in my opinion. Both channels are fantastic, and they are just a more versitile amp.

The Deluxe Reverb Reissues are great sounding amps, but you likely won't find one for $500. If you want amazing clean tones, they are the amp to check out. They get a nice overdrive when cranked, but the don't have a gain channel.

RE: OM. You guys in the Ottawa region?
How about starting with O for Ottawa and move on to M for Monthly, Monitor, Musician, Magazine.???? Any of those do anything for you?

+1 on the Traynor stuff. Also look for used Peavey classics or my personnal favorite the Crate V Series amps.

Xanadu, OM is the Ottawa Musician, an online buy and sell site. I agree with the others with regards to the Deluxe Reverb RI and the traynor YCV40. Make a trip to the closest music store and try both.
