But I agree, you need to get out and try as much as possible.

a few? i guess i could name a few. i checked you profile and it doesn't say where you're at in NY, to see if i could check CL so i'll just name a few off the top of my head

fender (like the silver face era)
marshall (jcm 800, 900, 2000)
peavey (5150, 6505, JSX, valveking are a few)
orange (tiny terror series)
jet city, egnator, vox, bugera (budget amps)

those are a couple i can name off the top of my head. i am really into much different styles of amps (music man, sunn, THD, silvertone, supro, old shit) so i am not really the best to be advising people on this forum for amps. but those are a handful of amps that don't really scratch the surface of what is available.

maybe 311 will come in here and do one of his famous CL searches for you.

i saw, you did good, and i don't know how anyone can tell someone else what kinda amp they'll like... you guys do a WAY better job at that than i do.

every amp that has been suggested thus far is a good idea.

I've liked the new Ampeg guitar amps that came out (last year?) they're decent. the 50w combo was extremely versatile, but like many budget versatility amps it was a jack-of-all trades, master of none. so...

+1 not worth the time.

some kind of manners and not being an ass would get you further. just for the future.

renegades are alright, once you have them for a while they get bland, i think i only had mine for six months. the tube mix switch doesn't really do much, but both channels are good. the best thing bruce did on that amp was leaving biasing points on the rear of the amp.

glad you found something.

Retube the AOR with JJ's and then let's talk about speakers. If you can't dial in an AOR to get acceptable Cure and Smashing Pumpkins tones either there's something wrong with it or you're doing it wrong.
Chasing the exact tone is expensive and ultimately doomed to failure because you don't have their studio engineers and a wall of rack gear. However, a tone acceptable for gigging that type of music should already be within your grasp.
Sort out the amp and buy a few nice pedals. It would money better spent.

At least one of the guitars on the Smashing Pumpkins track you posted has got a Big Muff on it (the one in the intro doesn't seem to but the second guitar that comes in for the chorus definitely has fuzzy goodness)

real important statement.

anyways seems like a peavey valveking would do the trick within your budget. it is important to keep in mind what the guys you are trying to copy used to get the tones you want. you'd be hard pressed to find an amp that gives you an EH Big Muff tone all by itself (especially within your budget.). if the amp you choose has a solid foundation tonewise to work from then no shame it using a pedal or 2 to get you the rest of the way. for hendrix i use a fuzz, for more modern metal sounds i throw an overdrive in fron of my VK. for blues rock and 70s hard rock and metal tones the VK can do that itself.

no, he needs more than one. several would project the powerful overdrive and unbelievable cleans better to the crowd. and you'll need at least eight cabs to stack the four heads on. if you don't you won't be heard enough. Marshall FTW

Replacing an AOR with an MG, huh?

Funny stuff.
