Ok so i am in the market for a british voiced tube amp of around 1000 AUD, roughly 900 USD. It will be mainly used for classic blues rock/metal eg iron maiden, gnr, cream, hendrix, metallica, pink floyd, dire straits and some punk rock stuff like rise against

So far i was thinking of buying used, but that is fairly difficult where i live....
Have looked at various cheap tube marshalls but i arent sure of the models, and i wasnt impressed.
But I did really like the Orange AD30 but its prob out of my price range.

What amp would you recommend for these bands? I would also like it to take pedals fairly well, and will be using a od to boost the amp to higher gains.

RIP Gooze

Laney VH100R, GH50L, TT50H or TT50 combo. You probably won't need a boost .

Laney LC15 w/ boost could do. Vox night train w/boost.

there's more, but I can't really relate to AUD.
Fender 1996 Floyd Rose Standard Stratocaster
Epiphone SG G-400

Laney TT50-112

Ibanez Weeping Demon
Marshall RG-1 Regenerator
Electro-Harmonix/Sovtek (Black) Big Muff Pi

these, plus bugera 1990. the peavey windosr is nice. its a one channel but worth a look. i boost mine with a ts-9 and it sounds great. for how much it costs im extremely happy with this amp.

Will preamp tubes turn black and melt slightly undernormal conditions and still work?

For that money you can often find a second hand Marshall JCM800 or 900 too. There's a couple on ebay.au atm that haven't gone over that limit.

Decent second hand JCM's are hard to find here in Australia so i recommend you look at a Marshall clone such as Ceriatone. You could pick up a JCM 800 for around $1,000 AUD and it will sound awesome

For a little cheaper I'd recommend a Peavey Classic 30. Great amp and can nail those tones

not the dire straits tones. (Mark Knopfler by the way played almost exclusively american amps. his tone is not at all british voiced)

I'd recommend either a Vox AC30 (used) which has a brilliant clean, and a very thick overdrive. or a Vox AC15.

Well this one went for $920. If in Sydney and could have picked it up in person it would have done the job nicely.

They do come up, you just have to keep vigilant.

I'm just gonna mention, if you feel like being a cheap sob, the Peavey Windsor is very British voiced.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

the only difference between the two models is the 2203 is 100 watt and the 2204 is the 50 watt version
