how small are we talking and how contemporary a service? i found my HR Deluxe to be way too loud for the more old-fashioned, but larger church i go to sunday mornings, but it's perfect for my smaller Saturday night church playing.

Ill add peavey classic. I second the fender blues jr. Both amps I suggest a speaker change. If you go a little more, a used Hughes and kettner puretone. Its my main and amp and church amp. Buy it used, youll save a crap load. Igot get for about 700 bux. Which is unheard of if you check out the sale price. Anyways, if you can go super high end, a used Matchless 1x12. I would stay under 30 watts if you can. I never go pass10 o clock at church. The pureton though is heavy combo. is it going to be staying at the church? Also what sound do you want? u2 sound, jazzy sound, etc etc? Those would be my top choices for bang for buck.

I love the matchless idea, not familiar with the hughes but I will look into it, Im mainly playing casting crown, mercy me, third day, slight distortion, probably a TS9 tube screamer, vox, mxr compressor, some type of Delay(looking for suggestions) 90's jap 62 reissue tele relic. Looking for warm clean deep tone for fills and soft riffs. thanks Zach

mmm...then i'd definitely go with a cleaner machine...any of the amps mentioned so far, if mic'd will do fine.

Fender HRD. If you're looking for some crunchy tones go for a Blues Junior but i somehow dont think you'll be wanting too much overdrive at a church. The HRD will give you the clean headroom, and i think you wont really need that much overdrive at church!

A Peavey's also a good idea,maybe a Classic 30. Might be cheaper and soud quite nice.

I honestly think that a Blues Junoir won't have enough clean hearoom. Possibly if your willing to clean things up with your volume pot. Still i think of it as more of a bedroom/small club amp>

Fender Hot Rod or Peavey Classic is the way to go i think!

I agree, the fender blues junior is not a super loud clean. It breaks up pretty fast. I like the fender HRD but they are too loud in my opinion for church. Maybe the 1x12 combo, but I rather get the peavey classic if that was the case. If you want high end, definately look at the matchless. The hughes and kettner puretone is very different from its tube brothers. Its actually very similar to a matchless (I like matchless better though). Its not a high gain amp, its moreof a clean amp which is why I reccamended it.
