I'm upgrading from my marshall mg100. i want an all tube amp for $800 max (canadian dollars). Used preferred. Mostly used for home practice and sometimes band practice/small auditorium. i have a ibanez rga121 with semour-duncan distortions. I like to play classic rock like zeppelin, van halen, but also some hendrix. Would also like some distortion like old alexisonfire or like a faster punk sound. So pretty much, VERSATILITY!
what do you guys think?

There is a Randall RM20 on ebay for $400. If you want versatile, the Randall MTS series is your best friend. As far as what modules to get...blackface or Clean for clean tones. I am selling a Clean module for $150 if you are interested. For hi gain, refer to these links:

unfortunatly i'm starting from scratch so that $800 has to cover the head and cab....so that doesnt leave me anywhere (even though it was be amazing to look at) a small stack or combos probs my best choice

there's a combo vintage modern to, but you'd need to stretch your budget by another $200 dollars. your other alternative is the Vox AC15, which you can find for like $500 used
