Amp & Pedals for 400?


So I already have an American Standard Tele. I sold my Fender Blues Reissue some months ago and now I'm looking to get another amp and some pedals.

I'm looking to spend 400 max and I'm open to buying used gear. I was looking at the Blackstar HT-5R but lost out on bidding.

I'm looking for bluesy tones ranging form Mayer, SRV, Jimmy etc.

What would your recommendations be?

You got lucky with the Blackstar.

Would a hot rod deluxe do bluesy tones? The overdrive is a bit weak though.

If you want a nice amp for cheap then an Epi Valve Junior+ a boost would get that bluesy sound. The only thing is it's 5 watts, so don't expect to do any huge gigging without a PA.

For a boost I'd get a Digitech Bad Monkey if you want a bit cheaper or a Maxon Od808 if you want to spend a bit more.

TBH, you should be happy you lost out on the Blackstar, I doubt it would do blues well.

For a cab I don't really know.

All this should cost you about 150-200 pounds with a cab.

Look for a used fender blues Jr and get a boost pedal like a Digitech Bad Monkey and a Fuzz for the Hendrix

You could look at a used marshall JCM2000 DSL201/401 combo

It really depends on if you want a more fender or british flavor to the amp
