I have about $1600, and i've narrowed my choices down to either the Bogner Alchemist Series 112 40W 1x12 Combo Tube Amp, or the Orange Rocker 30W Combo Tube Amp. Which of these two do you like better? If there is something better in this price range for classic rock, blues, and almost every music but metal, let me know. I don't need anything greater than 40W, and am looking for tone more than volume because i can always mic it.... I have an attenuator, so i can play at home as well as at gigs. So which of those two, or any other amp in the $1400-$1800 range? Thanks

Ceriatone.

No joke they are the best. Just a kinda long waiting list.

If you go used, you could pick up the Rocker 30 for about $800 - 900. Huge savings for you there. Alchemists are going to be harder to find used since they just recently came out. Ceriatone would be cool too, but shipping on those things are crazy and waiting would suck There's someone on my local CL selling an 18w Ceriatone Clone (with headshell) for $750 though.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Well you could save some money and buy a Traynor YCS50. I will give you the secret formula of tubes (only 1 NOS) to make it the best amp on the planet.

Sounds kinda funny but I sort of believe this.

Orange or Traynor sounds like a good match for you.
