Way to narrow it down.

I would try to find either a used Peavey JSX or a used Marshall JCM2000 DSL combo.

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.

maybe a peavey classic 30 and a good od pedal. does good cleans and light/medium gain. throw in a boost/od and it can get some metal tones.
#11
ok to clear this up I want a 2 channel amp with a warm clean and ether light break up or a medium distortion. I can get the other tones with a pedal. All i am wanting is a nice light little tube amp. Also please don't waste post with stupid comments thanks you

Sounds like a Super Champ XD.

hold on could I gig with a super champ? Is it loud enough to get over big band with no mic? This is the only place I would be playing with no mic.

Used JSX I'd say.

edit your post, dont post 3 times in a row.

ok, as for those amps, i would first take out the vyper. good amp for getting a wide variety of tones, but with your budget you can do a lot better IMO.
i would also take off the valveking. not a huge fan of them personally. if you are willing to invest the extra cash to get some upgrades such as a new speaker and new tubes pretty much right away, we can throw it back on the table. still not my cup of tea, but once you start doing the upgrades it is supposed to improve a good deal.
classic 30, well there is a reason i suggested it. it is a little dull at times, but it is a great amp to get you into the world of tube amps. the tones are solid, they just dont have some of the specialness that other amps have. solid cleans, solid crunch, spring reverb, footswitchable channel selection and easy to get a good deal on used.
if the ht-20 is anything like the ht-5, it is again a solid amp but doesnt wow me. now ive only played the ht-5, but my first impression was that it was fantastic. after that, the wow factor of having some cool features kinda wore off, and i found it to be a bit lifeless. cool stuff and fairly versitile, but didnt wow me tone wise. maybe the ht-20 is better, but thats my impression of the series.
hot rod deluxe, i thought the cleans were great. overdrive, not so much. solid base sound if you want to get most of your gain from pedals, especially if you want cleans and fuzz. most of the time you want an amp with a solid drive, this wouldnt be my choice for that.

not sure exactly how much it is, but the jca50 might be another option. i myself have the 20 watt version. great for a single channel amp, but sounds like you want 2 channels. the 50 has that, and a couple extra features. i think it might only come as a head, so you would nead a cab.

Fake EDIT: looks like the jca50 head is around $600. you could probably score a used cab for $200, which makes this a viable option.
#25
hey would the 20 watt jca be loud enough to do the jazz big band thing cause I could get all the tone I use from pedal. Also I was looking at the bugera v55

also listen to the classic 30 is it true that the clean channel is only clean on lower volume(as in the more you turn it up the more it breaks up)

what about the fender deluxe vm just wondering cause it has all the effects I use like delay chorus and reverb

thanks your post is really helpful

^ jca20 can get loud, but it will not stay clean. jazz with that thing is not an option at all.

classic 30 is like any other tube amp, the more you turn it up the more it will break up. havent played mine in quite some time, but i remember it did stay clean for a good ammount of volume. once you hit a certain point it isnt clean clean, but i think it had to be getting up pretty loud to be at that point.
#27
Try getting hold of an AC15? They have a clean channel which stays clean even at higher volumes, and then a Top Boost channel which breaks up nicely. Not to mention they are beautiful amps:

thanks guys yeah I have been play amps at my local store to day. I notice one that I think a 15 watt tube amp will be loud enough. also I played a fender blues jr but it was crazy cause it sound good but at louder volumes it sounded like the reverb plate was vibrating. Does anyone know if they all do that also am i right in thing that 15 watts is loud enough

hey the ac15 sound good by the way I just don't like the lack of controll

neither have as much gain as the jca50h
the blues jr. is something different entirely. The flubbing you're hearing is mainly the result of 1. the small box which isn't something that'll be able to change except with an extension cab and 2. the stock speaker which isn't very good.

The night train is alright. Kinda pricey for what it is. not a lot of headroom. Good cleans. The boost takes the tone stack out of the circuit so it's kinda a one trick pony.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer
#33
thanks am

ok so there out what about a fender hot rod deluxe, or a deluxe vm or egnater tweaker. also I can deal with one channel but two don't bother me I would like something little that I don't don't have to push hard. thanks
#34
I think out of those options the tweaker is the best. gregs has a bunch of clips up in his profile. It seemed to be nice sounding when I tried it.

The hot rod deluxe is alright if you get a good one. Their inconsistent and the made in mexico ones have a bunch of problems, the least of which is a volume knob that makes no sense. It sounds alright though. I had one for about a week. The 2nd distortion drive is kinda usable.

I wouldn't pay new price for one though.

I think in your price range a jet city 50 would be worth the wait. Not out yet but I think 599 or 699 when they are released

http://www.jetcityamplification.com/amplifiers/jca50h/

other then that the tweaker is really nice. I'm recording some clips of an amp I'm going to review here in just a bit. You might be interested in that too.

thanks question for you how cheap could I get a nice 1 12 cab I don't want junk but I don't want to pay an arm and leg for it either

thanks
#36
looks like the jca50H is going to be $599, or at least is here:
http://www.sabaturproaudio.com/Jet-City-Amps-JCA50H-50-Watt-All-Tube-Head_p_3752.html


as for a 1x12, there is always stuff like the valve junior cab or blackheart cab for around $150. maybe not the greatest cabs ever, but i wouldnt call them junk. heck, the jet city 1x12 is $200, so that might even be an option as well. thought it sounded damn nice when paired with the jca20h in the store. there are actually a decent ammount of cabs in the $150-200 range that are meant for those 5-15W amps. looks like most have speakers rated for 60-75W, so would work with a 50W amp
