I get paid soon and I'm looking for a decent amp for small gigs. Looking to spend around £400 max.
I have a epiphone dot and I'm still pretty much a noob. The bands we cover include the likes of the strokes, the arctic monkeys, nirvana, jimi hendrix experience, qotsa, the libertines, kings of leon, editors, arctic monkeys, cream, ocean colour scene, muse etc. etc. etc.

I'm not bothered about an amp with amazing built in effects (effects pedals are next pay day's job), I just need something reasonably priced that'll sound badass with some nice pedals and cover the sounds i'm looking for.
I was initially gonna have a look for a vox or fender hot rod.
So, aye, any ideas?

Look for a used Marshall JCM2000 401 DSL combo, or a Laney Lionheart.

do you need multiple channels, lots of clean headroom etc.?

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.

diezel

please show me where I can buy a Diezel for £400 - I could do with a shop like that!
You could possibly find a nice used Marshall JCM 800 on ebay for around that. Equally, if you can push your budget up to £500 then this would be perfect

as used by Kurt Cobain at one point...

If you're looking for an amp for home use only, then I'd look at a Marshall Class 5 and use the rest of your money to buy a nice boost like the Vox Satchurator, or possibly the aforementioned Laney Lionheart.

What wattage would I be needing? I'm looking for something for small to medium gigs, pubs, clubs etc...
I'm thinking I might just put 350 aside this pay, and put that with 350 next month's pay and push my budget up to about 700

But yeah, I'll go to a shop and try a few out, just looking to narrow down my options.

If I ever saw a Diezel for that cheap, I would buy it instantly.

a fender hot rod would be good for the indie styles mentioned there, and plenty loud enough....
a vox ac15/30 would also be good, if they are in your price range...

you really need to answer that. i don't gig, but the consensus seems to be that 15-20 watts is enough if you don't need cleans. more like 30-50 if you do. (by cleans i mean pristine, not-breaking-up cleans)
