All top notch amps.

I'd stay clear of the vintage modern. I'm not a fan, make sure you try it first.

And no, you've pretty much got all the British amp manufactures there worth mentioning.

oh my bad.

bad cat amps

I don't think it is made in england but it has incredible tone. Probably the best I've ever heard. They are pretty pricey, but they are all hand wired and class a.

Nice ones there. Hiwatt probably isn't what you want, since most of their amps are super clean. They came up with some high gain models lately as well, but I can't really comment on those.

Marshall, Orange and Laney are the obvious choices of course, and Dave always wets his pants whenever he talks about Cornfords, so they're probably worth a look.

My favourite amp for a British overdrive sound is the H&K Duotone, excellent crunch, I'd take it over any Marshall or Orange. Engl Blackmore is also worth a try if you like Marshall-y tones and need versatility.
Also look at the Framus Ruby Riot combo or the CB/CS top (head version of the combo). Definitely not metal amps, but great for British vintage tones.

if you're willing to look at smaller guys, you'd have things like martamp/MJW, matamp, EVA, Valvepower, Cornell, etc. etc. etc.

I haven't tried all of those, just to point out.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.


Sums up whisky perfectly

Dickinson!
Played two of his prototypes which he lent us!


yes, it was at a concert that me and few friends organised, our guitar teacher knew the guy who made them, and he gave us two. he had just sold an exact copy to the one we were playing through to bon jovi. . . . they sounded pretty amazing. but sadly cost over £3,000

British classic rock sound is what you're looking for? If you can afford it, the Blackstar Artisan series will surprise you: it surprised me and now I'm in love with them!
