i'm looking for a new amplifier. i would like something versatile (blues + metal), tube.

half stacks or 2x12 combos are OK.

so I'm going to ask UG today, what is your favorite versatile amp for that price, and WHY! if you don't say why, don't bother responding. and saying "6505+ because it's ****ing awesome" doesn't qualify as a legitimate answer.


GO!

edit: $1200

Fender Quad Reverb.

Then a metal type distortion box infront of it.

Best cleans, end of. Takes box's really well.

Loud as hell (seriously..)

you cant go wrong with a marshall, i have a valvestate and they are very versatile

ENGL Powerball.

Best amp I've ever played. Very versatile, and it took me about 10 seconds to find some good EQ Settings. Too bad I don't have nearly enough money to buy it. The Marshall Rhandy Rhoads is pretty good too.

You can!

Need I remind you of the MG series.

The valvestates aren't that good compared to what's out there!

i've never heard of it, or seen it anywhere, but a 4x12 combo looks quite interesting. i'd love to play one if i could find it anywhere

Marshall JCM 900. That amp has the exact tone I was looking for, and you can get it for cheap nowaday.

Get a used JCM 900 head and a USED 1960A cab, that will add up to about $1000 - $1200.

I plan on buying one eventually, I don't have the money right now and I want a good but small amp to bring when I don't want to lug a half stack. I will stick with a JCM combo for now.

It's a fender twin reverb, witch 4x12 instead of 2x12. IIRC the wattage is a bit higher too.

They're quite rare. I had the opportunity to have one for £600 and REALLY regret not buying it.

They are an insane concept too. Have you heard a cranked twin? Loud as hell, let alone the 4x12.

Madness.

Very versatile, good cleans, 4 channels, highest gain straight of any amp ive played, and the only one i know where you dont really need anything in front of it to really get the best out of it

why?



Great clean sound, great reverb, small and loud, affordable, etc.
The overdrive channel isn't great but I have a pedal for that.
