Very nice amp. I'd look at some 800 combos, Cornford Roadhouse models, and maybe a second hand hiwatt studio stage. Hughes and Kettner make a few nice combos in that price range. You've got a fair few options really. If you got lucky, you could swing a used Suhr badger 18 watter. There are also some great models by Ceriatone (I can vouch for just how good they are), and maybe a Marshall 1974x combo would be good.







All new,and they have a shop In Newcastle. Hope that helps.
There are obviously tons of second hand options too.

That's a lot of booze. Frankly, I'm impressed. You're of a stronger timber than the average man, jimbob! Hail you.

Honestly, I play pretty much the same as you and I got a lovely led zepp-ish tone from it pretty quick.

Plus the cleans are awesome.

When I tried the Rocker 30, I found it perfect for those styles.

Rocker 30's are good amps for that stuff. Also, you've got the money to look at matamp, so do so...They make some wonderful amps
