ok, so right now im playing a gibson les paul standard through a marshall jtm-30 (pretty much a jcm900) and im just getting sick of that same old marshall/les paul sound that everyone else has, and im wanting something unique. im wanting something vintagey sounding, so not way too much gain, since i can use pedals if i need more, and im wanting something with a good range of tones, but something unlike all the other amps. it just seems that despite all the amps out there, they all seem to fall into one of four categories,being high gain, fendery,marshally, and voxy, and im wanting something nice and different, like a boutique amp, but i cant afford something way too much, say 1500 tops, but i can go used. im also wanting good tones with a strat though too.

I once tried out a LP studio through a Peavey Classic 50. That thing roarss. Its the kinda amp where you change the sound by changing your guitar tone and volume more than the actual amp settings.

I'd suggest trying it out sometime. Quite a heavy blues feel which is surprisingly fun.

Fender is Fender but what about a 59 bassman? I think it's different and used by some great alt rock bands.

i tried a mesa 525 and the mesa stiletto and lonestar, and it just seems they are all way too marshally sounding.

Try Mesa Rectifier or Mark Series, they won't sound too Marshally.
Also you could try Orange Rockers, Rockerverbs and AD30s.
Carvin Legacy amps are also supposed to sound pretty unique.

I don't know what you think by 'amps which sound unlike any other amps'.
You could play around with FX pedals, different tunings, EQs and so on.

So ENGL?

No, there's nothing like a 'german voiced' amp.
The 2 main voicings are American and British, which differ in their mids. American voiced amps are rather scooped, British ones have rather boosted mids.

American: Mesa, Fender

British: Marshall, Vox, Orange

These are just a some examples, of course there are more.
Also I heard some people talking about 'European' voicings like ENGLs and Bogners, I don't know if there is really something like a European voicing though.
