If it's of any use I plan to buy the Fender BDTR this weekend, they have such an amazing tonal quality.

Great Advice btw!
The JMP clones vary, go to a good builder rather than someone who knocks out basic clones and they can have anything you wanted. And honestly is going to be closer to the Bassman tone for a decent price, if you really want the Bassman tone it needs to be a Bassman though.

They sound totally different, I love the AC30 but if it's the bassman you love (which doesn't have a master volume btw) it's not gonna fit the bill.

Hmm, my brothers roommate has a Woodstock Amp and it's awesome. They also make an 18 watter with EL84's en 12AX7's. Do you think this is one of those?
Here's the link.

How about the EVIL*ROBOT 18 Watt?
They sound really awesome, they are very different from the Bassman, but it is awesome none the less.
Here's a video

HOLD THE FOAM! I did not notice the pound... Yeah, that IS beyond my budget. Too bad, those are pretty cool!
So anyway, tomorow I'm going to my local guitar store and try out a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III, and maybe some stuff lying around. I hope I find it!

This is probably a way to loud amp, but what about a Marshall Vintage Modern? I can find one used in the budget, it has great sound, master volume. It's probably way too loud, but it might be great. What do you guys think?

Pm cathbard about a 18 watt jmp clone. I'm sure if you have a maximum budget of 1000 he can do something for you.

Try the Vox AC30. Beautiful amp, gorgeous cleans, and if you get one of the newer ones, it'll have a killer bluesy-overdrive channel. At low volumes, it's good for bedroom practice, but if you start gigging, it will still support you.

Sounds good, I'll keep my eyes open for those. Does the same go for the AC15?

Good amp. Yes, probably too loud in general. You can just turn the MV down, but it still likes to be cranked up.

Hod Rod Deluxe III. Do it. Great amp on its own and even moreso with a pedal or two. And while it can get pretty loud, it sounds good at lower volumes too. Also, like other tube amps, you turn them up from 1 to about 4 and think it must be insane by the time you get to 8 or 9, but at around 5 or 6ish (depending on amp of course) you stop getting more volume and just get more compression. So I say it again...HRDIII.

Yes, I believe it does. I haven't played with an AC15, but as far as I'm aware, it's the same amp with less wattage. And the Hot Rod Deluxe series is excellent as well.

He can't, you can't import (or manufacture) electronics in the EU without CE marking. He won't sell to the EU

Seriously, the THR10 is as good as it gets for home use. I'd be considering the Line6 DT25 too.


Honestly though, I think you need to check out the Hayden Mofo.

30W mini head that's switchable down to 15W, Marshall voicing, footswitchable boost, loads of gain on tap. I owned one for a while and it was fantastic, really nails those JCM800/Plexi tones at moderate volume.

Today I was at the guitar store trying out a few amps.
I tried the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III, H&K Tubemeister 18 combo, Marshall Haze 40 and Blackstar HT40.
All were pretty nice on low/normal volume. But after about twenty minutes the store owner, who I sometimes chat with, came to me and told me to crank the amp, I took this oppertunity and cranked all of them. The store was pretty empty so I had no problem doing that. And all of them really opened up, I especially liked the Fender HRD and the Blackstar HT40 when cranked. Though I did not find the Plexi sound I was looking for, so I was still a bit dissapointed.
Since I play at my bedroom most of the time, the volume doesn't go up and it will rarely sound as well as it would when cranked. The amp I have now (Fender M-80 Chorus 2x12 combo) sounds great when on low volume, and is a bit shit when up high volume. Maybe I will get a nice tube amp once I get into a band or just have some random money lying around. Untill then I will stick with what I've got and keep my eyes open.

EDIT: I will also keep my eyes open for maybe some modeling amps, like the Yamaha..

Even though I did not find what I was looking, I still want to thank all of you for advice and such.
So, thanks and by all means, keep the discussion going if you want to.

Id try a marshall class 5 combo, I bought one last month the only issue is you MUST mic it for gigs, but if you can try it at the store use
Volume 2-5
Bass-2-3
Mid-6
Treble-4
with a fuzz infront. I think you will dig it

Note: It is a bit awkward in volume where you cant get amazing tone in at low volume (unless you get the model with the low power switch) and it isnt loud enough for gigs. It also has no loop but it is the cheapest plexi-esque tone you can get and it sounds better than anything in its used price range (about $300-$350 for the combo, $200-$300 for the head)
