Hello GG&A, I am going to get amp with my wallet which im going to dump out. Its Roughly $520. I have a few requirements. Must be tube, not too one of a kind, not a love or hate amp, meh thats all. Looking for a Nice Clean that can prove a crunch when it is supposed too. Guitar is a Fender MIM Telecaster and Epiphone G-400. It is nice for it too be loud enough to small gig with. I want a tone sorta like a Jazzy clean while able to provide some Zeppelin Crunch.

I was looking at the

AC-15 (I hear only good things)
Fender Super Champ (I heard it needs pedals but i think i have enough remaining for a decent distortion)
Peavey Valveking 112 (I enjoyied it alot but lots of mixed opinion on UG)
Peavey Vypyr Tube 60 ( I liked it but i prefered the Valveking better)
Peavey Windsor Series (They dont seem to fit me but if people think otherwise be my guest)
Fender Pro Junior (I'm not sure but its worth a go)
Vox AC50 Classic Plus ( I never heard anything about these but they sound good on paper)

Ok not going to be responding just going to see thread in morning and tally up the results and guide my purchase based on the recommendations

Now I've been wondering this and you're probably the perfect one to ask. How does the Classic 30 pull off Wolfmother-esque tones?

(also do you have an account on the unofficial wolfmother forum )

Vypyr tube over the valveking. You must have not set it right or something when you heard it.

You can find a used Fender Blues Deluxe for around $400 or under (I got mine for $350). It has great cleans and can definitely get loud enough to gig with (the ****er is loud), though you'd definitely need a pedal to get the crunch you're looking for. The gain is alright for playing on your own but that's about it.

The only one on your list I've played through are the valveking and it was pretty good, but I was kinda underwhelmed. I really like the Fender Hot Rod as well.

It nails those tones. Classic 30 was built to play vintage voiced hard rock IMHO. Sounds even better with an OD
