Hey all, my parents have agreed to buy me a new amp as a christmas gift. Budget is anywhere below about $750. I currently own a Peavey envoy 110. Some of the bands I like are Guns N' Roses (favorite, mostly going for slash's sound without buying a 1.5k+ marshall), Aerosmith, Queen, Clapton, Led Zeppelin and VR.

I've narrowed it down to a Traynor (the one I've been playing at guitar center is the YCV40, but I'd also like opinions on the YCV40 with the celestion speaker), a Laney VC30 (its actually a little out of my price range, but if its that much better I could prob get it). Any opinions will help, thanks.
I don't have access to laneys but everyone on the forums seems to think they are really nice. I've only been looking new, my dad has something against ebay, and I haven't found anything I wanted on craiglist yet, all the nice marshalls are still $1000+ used.

I'll look into that classic 30 also, thanks
For Slash tone, I'd have the Traynor. The Laney will sound more modern.

No it won't.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.
^ yeah, it'll be the opposite. i'd rather have the traynor though. the 50 (from what i hear- i've only tried the 40 and 20) might be better for the type of music you're after.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
