I figured I'd make use of the template I saw in someone elses thread to save it from looking like a total failure.

Hi, id like advice on getting a new amp.
I have €500 to spend on an amp which i need not gig with.
I like to play the genre rock (a la Led Zeppelin) mostly.
I'd like the tone similar to the artist Eric Clapton
I want a combo, and i do want a tube amp
I'm using an MIM Fender Stratocaster guitar, worth €495.
And i dont mind having 1 channel.
I dont mind buying used.
I live in Ireland (that last one's gonna feck ye over)

Fender Blues Junior
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
Laney VC30-212
Marshall DSL401

I'm not sure of prices in Ireland but these should be inside your budget. The Marshall is probably pushing it a bit but there seem to be plenty used ones around in excellent condition.

Going to bump this thread so I can get a few more answers, and I''l probably delete the thread by tonight.


Thank you for the suggestions above btw.

I got my Fender Blues Deluxe for just over €600 and it gets a great Clapton tone. The overdrive is weak but I only use its clean channel anyway.

EDIT: I might actually be willing to sell it if you're interested

Little solace comes
to those who grieve
as thoughts keep drifting
as walls keep shifting
and this great blue world of ours
seems a House of Leaves

As well as those already listed, look into a Blackheart Handsome Devil, or the Little Giant.

This.

If you aren't gigging (and don't need EQ) you could look at a Killer Ant too.
