I'm looking at spending around £400-450 on a combo tube amp that I can practice and gig with.
I play mainly indie, punk and experimental genres, and want something that will deliver some nice clean tones. Im also looking at getting a tubescreamer.
It's time for me to move up in the world from the MG100HDFX I have shamefully sitting in my room atm. I want something that actually sounds nice.
any suggestions?

Maybe a tiny terror? They go for about £450-ish.

Tiny Terror? Good cleans? Naaaaaah.

You know, for closer to 500, you can get an AC15. That'd be quite good.

also, a mate told me tubescreamers don't sound as good through vox as they do through the fender. this might be my mate being a dickhead as pr usual, but it puts me off the vox a bit.

please, for the love of god, don't get a TT if you want a versatile amp with good cleans. It's flat, sterile, and one-dimensional.

But it would sound better with a Maxon OD808.

Just sold mine yesterday. Great amp, the cleans we're awesome. Very similar to an AC30. It's the most versatile, under recommended amp on UG. I never wanted to rec it for fear of being accused of doing it just because I own it. Now that it's gone, I have to say that is one great little tone monster.

Edit: TS - I realize you are leaning towards the AC15, great amp as well. I just had to get that off my chest.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
