I think they are equal to MG with far more hype.

Vile mush.

Quality out of SS amps = 3/10 - some way better.

Q. out of any amp = no point.

Let the advice begin.

£ 200 max of ebay lol so that could be a what, £400 amp? i guess...

I play mostly distorted sounds ; guns n roses, and cleans from guns n roses like paradise city' also, pink floyd sounds... etc

Usable (but far from good) crunch tones, bad lead tones, kinda "boomy" cleans which I didn't like at all. It's also tough to eq. It's either sounding too harsh or doesn't cut through the mix of a band well enough. It is too pricey for what it does.
If you want to play classic rock and need a cheap amp, the Vox Valvetronix series of amps is a good place to start. They do crunch sounds very well, but can do other styles as well and also have nice built in effects.

But what is your budget and will you need the amp for home use/band rehearsals/gigging?

EDIT: Just saw your post. For that money, definitely check out the Valvetronix series, the 50 watt one has a nice big speaker and is plenty loud.

EDIT: 200 quid will get you a used 50 watts one. If you want a new one, 200 will only get you the VT30, which is quieter and has a smaller speaker. But if you don't need it to be loud, it would suffice.

yup, he speaks the truth. i used to have the avt150H and the eq is not very responsive, not the best to eq. its best to get a nice 1 speaker tube amp for cheap, so much much better for your money.

Vox VT50 is your best bet then. Maybe a Line6 Flextone, though I don't know how much they go for used.

Sounds like a Flextone 3. Usually the HD's and 2's go for about $200-$400.

Okay, that is a bit much. Aren't they like 700 new?

The old Valvestates = pretty good. The new ones = pretty crap.

I would look for a used Flextone or possibly a Valvetronix.

I currently own one... the stock speaker is muddy as hell, with a new speaker they're not too bad, if you can find one cheap.
