Shopping according to brand only limits you and lessens your chances of getting what you really want. My Valveking was a great amp and with an OD, it had plenty of gain. It wouldn't be a bad option...

They are twenty watts versions of the amp you're interested in. If you have the money, the 50 watt is a better option. B-stock just means the amp had a factory defect of some kind

I owned a RG80 for a while. The amp was probably the toughest amp I've ever had. You'd really need to bash it to mess anything up. The amp was good when I had V30s with it, but to be honest, for...

It takes time to get a good tone, but a POD is really the way to go. They go for super cheap used nowadays and they're way better than microcubes in terms of amp/effect selection and tone. I bought...

That's strange. I have JJs in mine and I love it. It does darken the tone, but I feel it just adds a ballziness to it. I also play through V30s, so maybe that's why I don't find them muddy.

I owned a RG75 for a while and even gigged with it when my JCA50 and 1980 were out of commission. I bought it for $100 so in that regard it did its job. It has a decent power amp that's loud,...
