hey guys
I've been looking around for a good cheap amp head, i was originally looking at the tiny terror, but in Australia it's around $750, and i don't have that much. So i want one for <$500. Also its just for my bedroom/loungeroom. Doesn't have to have good distortion because i plan on getting some decent pedals. (i no, pretty vague).

Are there any respected Aussie amp companies? Or do you guys just have Cole Clark acoustics?

We have Perry Ormsby.

With the amp a 15watt valvetronix isnt too bad for under 500

but those bugera's arent bad and any problems that may occur have guides on UG to fix up so i'd save up some more.

You must check out the Blackstar HT-5H. 5 Watt Tube, 2 channel, 3 band shared eq and a control called ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) which changes the voicing of your amp from UK to US and everything inbetween.

I just bought one and I absolutely love it. It sounds perfect for what you're looking for and it's close to your price range (I paid $550)

Here's a couple of clip to give you an idea, but they don't really do this amp justice cause it sounds even better live .
