Problem: I can't get clean enough, loud enough with my current amp. Been playing through a Blackstar HT-1R Metal on the clean channel in a largeish finished room over the garage. I am playing an Elite Fender Strat. I am a transplanted classical guitar player so, predictably, I gravitate toward cleaner amp sounds. My little 1 watt amp got pretty decent clean sounds, especially with an EHX Soul Food set up as a clean boost with the volume at 12 o'clock and the gain at minimum with my former lower output pickup's in my Classic Vibe 60's Strat with GFS '59 professional pickups. My new Elite Strat has hotter pickup's and I can't get clean enough loud enough. What would you folks recommend for playing SRV, Clapton, Dire Straits, Hendrix, and Pink Floyd stuff? I am open minded and have pedals for reverb, delay, and overdrive so the amp doesn't necessarily have to do those things on its own. I would like to be able to have enough clean headroom to play crystal clean stuff like, "Lenny", but not blow me out of the room when I want to get some edge of breakup stuff.
