I'm looking to buy a half stack tube amp for around 700 dollars. Anyone have any suggestions?

Uh, why the need for a half stack?
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

I need a half stack for gigs. I normally rock/hard rock.

crate v series maybe...idk though, most half stacks at that price are kind of sucky. a peavey windsor would be good if you dont play clean.

Please, kid...don't buy a halfstack. The fact that you might look cooler with one is easily compensated for by the better tone coming out of a combo that you can find at the same price point (in your specific range).
At very least, grab a 333XL combo (you can't get a halfstack for 700). The combo has the same wattage as the halfstack, and you can replace the speakers.

Egnater Rebel 20 with a good cab. i have not heard a bad thing about that amp. i have one and it is awesome. i A/B'd it with a Valveking and a Bugera the day i bought it, and it outpreformed the both of 'em. you should at least check it out if you are looking to buy a tube head.

This too...except with a good cab, its at least $100 out of budget.

I've gotta second this. I have both the Rebel and the Valveking, and the Rebel is more clear, and a lot more versatile than the Valveking. It's a GREAT little amp for anything, and it has enough power for small gigs. Clips in sig.

you don't need a big cab. just a little 1x12 will do. the Epi VJ cabs work really well with the Rebel. so do the Blackheart cabs.

or, alternatively, you could build one with a speaker and a cheap Wooden box you can probably find at a feal market or a garage sale. suit cases/breif cases also work really well and add a cool vibe.

I have an Egnater and use a VJ cab as well, but they're $160, which translates to $60 bucks out of budget...and I don't think it's the best cab.

True.

I think it works pretty decently with the Rebel. IMO, the Egnater 1x12 had a little too much low end which translated to mud.

700 for a halfstack isnt really enough, try a combo instead mate, am a halfstack user myself but you know, cabs are expensive
