I currently own a roland 30 watt cube and have been considerin gettin a new amp and since im on a tight-ish budget I was given advice to get a small 15watt valve amp with basic settings (maybe with some built in reverb) and then spend money on a QUALITY effects board.

So I came here with hopes of gatherin advice on:

-The most generally reliable, good quality valve amp for roughly 200-300 UK pounds.
Ive checked out a little of the Blues Junior and the Laney... CUB..? I think?

-The most reliable, good quality effects board with the best range of sound possibilities (prefferably with a decent on-board manual WAH-WAH for roughly 200-300 UK pounds.

I currently own a Yamaha RGX520DZ equip with Seymour Duncan hum-buckers and I cant be sure but intend to buy either a fender telecaster or stratocaster within the near future. I can decide just yet.

Im mainly into Jazz and Jazz fusion of all kinds but I also play 70's 80's soul and rock with the band I play with.

All advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you
I have heard good things about the little Blackheart mini-stack. It's like 5W, think it goes for like $150-200 (I don't know the exchange rate for UK pounds). As for a pedalboard, I got the BOSS ME-50 (the older version of the ME-70 that is out now) and I'm quite satisfied with it. Wah is a little weak on it, but for everything it gives you, I can't really complain.

Just so you know, I read everything you type in a Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs voice.

The Blues Jr. and the AC15 should be great for you. As for the multi, I don't like them so I will let others handle that.

Man, you're buying a tube amp to run multi efx on it? Bad choice.

digital amps are like Fapping, its good but nothings like the real thing.
I would save up and buy individual effects pedals, sounds a lot better. The AC15 and Blues Junior are good choices so is the vox nightrain.

you can't go wrong with an ac-15 and a boss me-50...

Apart from the fact that it is way over his budget.

i'm cheating slightly (you'll have to budget for a cab too), but:


not sure how much headroom it'd have for jazz, though.
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.
