    Well, not entirely. I have a couple of Pearce guitar amps
    that I'm completely enthralled with; I don't use anything
    else. However, Dan Pearce went out of business a few years
    back (okay, over a decade at least), so you have to hunt for
    them to find them. It's worth the hunt, IMO. Very smooth
    distortion, and the fact that the semiparamteric midrange
    comes before the distortion circuit lets you adjust the
    character of the distortion to just the way you want it.
    I wish he could've stayed in business. He was making a
    great product, and I can't imagine what his company would be
    making today. I get a LOT of compliments on my tone, and a
    lot of raised eyebrows when they discover thar ain't no
    tubes in that thing.

    I have a Tech 21 Trademark 10 I've been continuously happy with.

    If you go with a Vox AD50VT (or one of it's smaller brethren) make
    sure you play it first. The one I played through had a lot of noise
    in the preamp, no matter which 'voice' was selected. Keep an ear out
    for it.
