So...I was at a guitar shop the other day and I was testing out a low end ESP model and I happened to plug into a hughes and kettner 6l6...

I'm in love.

This amp gave me very high quality sounding distortions at very low volumes - all tube. Think anything from Brian May to Scorpions...I didn't try the clean much but.

1500 bucks is quite steep - and it seems like the folks on ebay arn't going to divebomb the price either.

So, if anybody knows any amps that get a really good distortion at practice volumes...With reverb I'd owe you.

Also right now I think i'm at around $700-800 on cash.
