ADK S7b ... smooth, ribbonish, winner on the vocal your describing having trouble with.
Note that some ADK dealers have a try before you buy program.

Before you rush out and buy, be sure to bring your cymbals with you including your high hats so that you can try the ride in with what your already using! Try to find a "Zildjian 21" Sweet Ride" and play that sucker. I consider it "soft." It works well within your genre, live or for recording.

+1 on the Pacifica! Add a ADK custom shop TC47AU and it will meet your listed wishes. Awesome combination!

I used the Fender Blues Jr. for a while, but found that I had to "crank it" up to get the tube saturation that I was looking for out of it. After doing a lot of research and trying out many low wattage tube amps I found the Blackstar HT5 head (combined with the cabinet of your choice) to be fantasti...

Elsewhere there are some that think they sound different but when I asked John Peluso about it, he said that they sound the same.

The Shinybox iterations are wonderful. Love the 46U. Check out the Si4, four channel preamp that Jon makes. It features switchable input loading( 1.4k and 8.1k).
