Guys I found the amp to get me through rehearsals and your not going to believe

The Boss katana 50 (on clean setting) with the Yamaha revstar 502 (the green on with a cool tailpiece) this could be a cool Travis bean substitute

I was getting jerry 76-77 tones for days

And with a strat then ice 70-72 tones

Now I must say I am an audio engineer and know how to goose EQs but I didn't have to do much

And it weighs 25 pounds!!

Lol, I've been using the katana 100 combo lately for Jerry tone, but on the lead channel with the gain, volume, reverb and presence all around 10 to 11 and the tone knobs in the usual range, using a strat with the volume set at 5 for a semi-clean, then cranking it up to 7-10 for mild overdrive to the edge of distortion. The same settings get too gnarly for Jerry tone when pushed with humbuckers. That setting sounds more like the Mesa years than the modded silverface twin. On the lead channel it's really responsive to pick dynamics.

I just got the GA-FC foot switch for the amp, and want to play a little with the settings online for the built in autowah to see if I can move it into the right ballpark, which would basically make this a decent grab and go for dead stuff, leaving the pedal board at home. Also, there's an online tweak for the amp itself to run in more of a blackface clean mode. I might try playing with that stuff this weekend.

@Ethanlovesjazz would you mind posting some clips? Would love to hear what that amp sounds like.

Here's my light weight Jerry Tone Amp. SMS pre, Carvin DCM200L, and JBL D-120 in a walnut and maple combo box.

I acquired a McIntosh MC 250 about a year ago and have been using that exclusively as the power amp and was contemplating building a rack to accommodate the Mac and SMS and building a separate speaker cab. Yesterday I unplugged the MC250 and ran the combo box with the Carvin for the first time with my new Post Wolf.

I was shocked at how close it sounded to the Mac. I'll post an AB test at some point soon.

Based loosely on the play, Oklahoma:

"The 'exact' and 'good enough' people should be friends.
The 'exact' and 'good enough' people should be friends.
One pursues both the music and tone,
The other prioritizes the songs,
But the 'exact' and 'good enough people should be friends."

A 2x12 anything to me is not light and hence not responsive to the OP's inquiry, however, there are already several excellent responsive options posted here for those in the "good enough" camp. The Katanas and Quilters, in particular, are intriguing.

Are you using this as just a power amp or pre & power amp?

The Micropro is a full on guitar amp, pre+power. The front end is super flexible. It will do Jerry tones.

Yes, I know what it is, however, it that how it's being used (pre & power).
