    I've got to spend around 1300,00 USD.
    I have a luke true gold , and i just received my bogner alchemist!!! it's a terrific amp!!! the clean are really nice (in a fender way) and the overdive channel is really warm with good gain!!! the amp has 2 channels (where you can choose different kind of gain) a boost , and some effects (delay and reverb). the amp comes with a footswhitch with four switches (channel, boost, delay and reverb) i 've bought it for only 560€ in europe!!!
    for the power amp, you can choose beetween 20wtts or 40wtts (for gigs)

    for me, it's one of the best amp i had !!!

    My favorite tones coming from my luke are provided by a Mesa Mark III simuclass and the Legacy I. The Carvin X100b looks promising as well.

    You can't get it for 1300, but the Mojave Scorpion is my current holy grail amp for blues rock, classic rock vibes.

    Hi Jutter!

    I used to have a Koch Twintone head, then I traded to buy a 1x12 combo.

    I think the distorted sound it's horrible, muddy and too trebly, without mids (and electric guitar lives there!), but the clean channel is one of the best I've ever tried and it's great with pedals.
    You could try few good overdrive/distortion pedals to pair with your twintone, you save money and you can bring your own distortion sound anywhere you play, when you can't bring you own amp

    Thanks! First I got a Koch TwinTone combo and now I've got a Koch Twintone Head and 2x12cab. The clean channel is great! I use it with a Brunetti Mercury Box. The clean channel sounds great but with the Brunetti MB it's a little bit a hifi sound..... and I don't like it!
    I prefer an amp with a very good overdrive-channel;no pedals, just the overdrive of the amp.

    Me too! But I don't have the money to buy the amp of my dreams!!

    p.s.
    Brunetti is a good artisan Italian amp maker, but the best one is Masotti, I have 2 of his pedals and I tried the amps, they're among the best in the world!

    I've got to spend a 1300,00 euro. That must be enough for a good amp, isn't? I see on this EBMM forum that a lot players uses Mesa's. So I thought; let me ask them what a good (mesa) amp are in combination with my Luke.

    Another vote for the Mini Rectifier here! And yes, it's loud enough, even on 10 watts mode with the Modern setting using a 4x12, I have no issues being heard in our rehearsal room (2 guitars, bass, drums & singer/PA) and we play around 104db (measured with my iPhone).

    Since, I got it, I've been wasted. 12 pounds and comes with a nice carrying bag. Easy to lug around. 2 channels, FX loop. And it looks cute!

    Here are some clips recorded at "what-everyone-calls-bedroom-volume":
