Hey UG,

If you had £500 and you needed an amp with amazing cleans.You have an OD pedal so you don't need good amp distortion.It needs to be loud enough for you to do pub gigs.

Go for it what would you get?

Thanks UG

Not going to loud or clean enough, every DR I've played started breaking up around 4 or so. Especially if you're using humbuckers.

What kinds of music do you play, and what OD pedal do you have?

You have an expensive OD and you play funk rock

that doesn't help, not all expensive ODs sound alike and some may work better with some amps than others.

Ex: I would never use a pedal like a tubescreamer on a Marshall plexi as it would get too nasal, but it works great for Fenders.

Ok a purple plexi OD

CullenT its a vintage one from the 70's got it on ebay. best thing i ever bought

The person who sold it for that low is a complete and utter retard, even if it is a silverface.

If you can find a Twin or Twin Reverb for £500, it would be ideal. Alternatives are Vox AC30 (less bright tone), Vox AC50 (slightly less clean) or a Hiwatt 50 combo (between the TR and the Vox). The Hiwatt takes most pedals well.

fender blues deluxe or hot rod deluxe, most likely. you're not getting those reissues for £500 over here (assuming you're talking new)...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Depends on whether you play with a drummer or not, if you just use it in your bedroom you could get a Vox AC4 TV and use the rest to buy pedals or you could get a higher wattage amp i.e. a vox ac15 or a fender and buy an attenuator if you had the funds.

i dont know. there are some very very very bad silverface twins. ultra-linear transformers, 135 watts, master volume on an amp with a fizzy preamp= YUCK!

there are some great SF fenders though, dont get me wrong. but there are some awful ones/

I still think it's too low a price, but I'd have to play it first to pass true judgment, since I agree with you on all those points.

There was a '63 blonde Bassman on eBay last week I was SO close to buying.

From my experience, it depends on how versatile you wanna be. The Jazz Chorus has in my opinion the best funk rhythm kinda cleans, but the fender amps mentioned earlier fair much better for clean licks and solos. Also, the fenders take pedals better, IMO.

The Hot Rod Deluxe really does sound amazing on clean. Also, they really like pedals. I played one six months back, it was really great. Easy to set up nicely, too, unlike many more expensive amps.
