I'm thinking of selling my Crate V33, it just isn't cutting to the chase when it comes to gain, the cleans are good, but I don't play a lot of cleans.

I'm looking for something with a British voicing, but also has a high amount of gain. Obviously Splawn, Marshall, and Laney comes to mind (however 2 out of those 3 are very expensive). I was thinking of the Laney AOR 50 head, but they're rare. I haven't built an amp before, but I'm not opposed to it. I play mostly punk and blues, I know, a rare combination but I have my Handsome Devil for cleans.

I have around a $500 budget if I sell my V33.
Player, give me some brew an I might just chill
but I'm the type that like to light another joint like Cypress Hill
