What is in your opinion the most versatile and of course best sounding (tube)amp for around 1000 bucks?

What type of music do you play, genres? Do you gig?

Vox VT100. About 600-700 dollars i think. Vox have the most versatile amps on earth. I've never played anything with so many different tones. Play one you'll know what i mean.

Used Twin Reverb or used Hiwatt 50w combo if you are gigging.

i think he's looking for a all tune amp, not a modeller with a preamp tube

Something "american" voiced. Not sure what you can get a used fender tube for over there. Maybe a HRD and good od pedal.
#15
i think a head for 1000 makes no sense because then i need boxes and it will get a bit expensive. a combo is maybe the best. Of course you should be able to play with it in a band anda bit louder gigging too

The H&K Switchblade comes in 50W and 100W combo form too. Think the 50W combo is probably around €1k

Fender or Marshall...I hate to be closed minded but...c'mon man!!

De'Ville models of Fender are a higher power buy than the HRD because they are the same circuits, but at a higher volume. a 4x10 comes at 850$ new and a 2 or 3x12 comes at like 790$ IIRC.

Marshall I have no personal experience. My local places only stock MGs

If you could stand to TRY brittish voicing Orange and Voxes have great amps as well. If not, it was worth experiencing it.

The JCM 800 sounds good, the Switchblade too but i always thought
Fender + Overdrive Pedal= .......

and... maybe I'll try the blackstar series one

Line 6 Spider Valve is by far the most versatile. The Vetta is probably really versatile too.

However, for your purpose, I'd recommend a JCM-800 (any model is great) or maybe a Silver Jubilee or if you don't mind a lesser tone, the DSL series.

Don't double post, and a JCM 800 would be nice if you don't mind single channel. Also, good luck finding a Silver Jubilee for $1000 in Germany.
#29
i just dont find the jcm 800 new on the internet. can you only buy it used ?
and im wondering how a good fender and an overdrive pedal sounds? would you recommend it?

You can get a double channel too with more gain on tap but a less vintage tone.

Oh, I actually forgot about that. There pretty rare to find though.

if you limit yourself to tube you're being dumb. check out the Line 6 Vetta and my personal fave SS amp, the Ampeg VH140-c

Not really. I have the 100W, my friend has the 50W (2210 and 2205 respectively)

Do you think a Fender Hot Rod DeVille 410 + good OD Pedal can keep up with a JCM 800?

Sure it can keep up. You shouldn't have to "compete" with the other bandmember's volumes but mix with them. A deville and od would be a nice compliment to a JCM imo.
Any chance to try the amp and od out?
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
#38
Thank you, I will go to a music store soon to try it out. Any OD pedal-recommendations? should I save money for something like a Hughes & Kettner Tubeman??
