I'm after an amp head to sit on my desk in my studio. I'll be running this into my Two Notes Captor, via an RME Babyface into Logic.

I don't want a modeler or digital situation. I don't like the sound or the feel.

Currently I'm using an old Marshall Lead 12 head which I've switched the opamp out to a Burr Brown, and it sounds unsuprisingly not bad.

I'm after I guess some kind of modified JCM800 type of sound, that can also do low gain Plexi/Voxy tones. I wouldn't need anything more than around 15w -20w, and an FX Loop would be handy, but not a deal breaker.

I'm thinking of a Soldano Atomic head, maybe a Bogner Atma, or even one of the new Marshall JCM800 studio heads.

Any other suggestions? Cheers!

Isn’t the Marshall Studio the exact amp you are describing?

I find it interesting that you discount ALL modelers in your situation. I have the Marshall Studio Classic head but it still doesn’t sound or feel as good as my Helix for low volume playing.

You just described the Khan Pak II. I know, because I have two of them.
