As I'm contemplating buying a new amp, I am trying to get away from the Fender-ish and Vox-ish sounding amps. I am looking for alternatives to old Plexi Marshalls like the 100w Super Lead or JMP 50 (or similar).
Which Dr. Z amp sounds most like what I am describing?

I would say 6545 or SRZ-65. They come up for sale here and there used. Have not been in production for a little while. The SRZ-65 was just re-released as a limited edition of 35 samples. You may still be able to find one. I would try Wild West Guitars or Fat Sound Guitars first and go through the dealer list. Also, check ebay for used samples and here on the forum as well.

I'd have to say a delta 88.... I've had one for a month, and it's a very rawm aggresive, in your face plexi sound... get the volume up to 1:00 and it breaks up, but does not saturate, keeps its rawness.....
check out my Delta 88 sound clips in the delta section..
I find from hearing the srz-65, it sounds a lot more like an 80's jcm 800 in the way it saturates and then thickness of the tone....
