Hi, im looking to get a new amp, preferably tube, to play blues and 60's/70's rock on (The Who, Hendrix etc). Would prefer something with lower wattage so i can drive it a bit more, (current amp is an 80 watt thing that my parents were conned into buying). Must be good for home use and small gigs. I've been looking at fender blues juniors and HRDs but i was wondering if they would really give the "british" Marshall sound for the rock. Tubescreamer or something maybe?
(edit: using SSS Standard strat as main guitar)

Peavey classic 30?

Never tried it personally but these are quite popular around here. But the Flextone I own it pretty versitile, you can probably get any tone you can think of

Then again, the warm sound of a tube amp can't be replicated by a solid state amp.
The cliched "rig" Signature:

ESP LTD EC-1000VBL (EMG-ed)
Dean Cadillac SilverBurst Left-handed
Boss GT-8
Roland Micro-Cube
Line 6 FlexTone III XL
Levy's straps

if you want a british rock sound, i'd avoid those fenders. great cleans, mediocre (at best) drive tones.

laney vc30 would be cool. up to you, of course, best thing to do is to try as many amps as you can...

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.

Laney VC-30? British voiced, although not quite Marshall-y. I prefer it to Marshalls, to be honest, it has nice cleans, reasonable drive channel, enough gain for what you want to play. All round good amp really.

Or an Orange Tiny Terror? Better overdrive, but worse cleans, maybe a little less versatile tone-wise, but a nice amp.

But really, the only thing to do is to go out and try as many amps as possible, and listen to them yourself, as people have different tastes.
