so I want a tube amp. It doesn't have to be too loud because I play in my bedroom only. I want it to have a really nice clean, and a good crunch too. I don't play any metal. I'm fine buying a used one off ebay, it really doesn't make a difference to me if its used or not as long as its good quality. thanks. oh, and I'm ona $500 budget.

Peavey windsor. if you really want, you can get the head version, and it cleans up nicely if you use your guitar volume knob.
Kodiak bears make awesome bandmates.

peavey classic 30 would be my first choice for you. other than that, look into blackstar ht-5 or ht-20 and bugera v22. you might also want to try a fender blues jr with an od pedal. not sure if you'll need one (more than likely you will) but i think those things sound great.

honestly though, my first choice for you would be the peavey

hahahaha! really? he said he needs good cleans and doesn't play metal!


Cleans are fine on the + and the crunch is great.

There are much better options of course, but he should try it if he can.

My recommendation is a Marshall DSL.

Well... I've managed to play a 50w plexi clone in my room without anyone on the other side of the house being terribly annoyed. Master Volumes are wonderful things.

5-watt amps just get a reputation of being really loud because most don't have MVs, and few have power attenuators. Manufacturers probably assume that you'd be cranking a 5 watt amp, anyway.

Well, that's great. of course that's the case for a master volume.

But IMO, if I could never crank up an amp that sounded best when cranked, if I never needed that kind of power because I only played in my bedroom (which is not the case for me, in reality. just saying.)...I'd look at other options. just my two cents.

Now, if I needed an amp that could sound great at gigging volumes, and then sound okay at bedroom volumes...You bet I'd be looking at a tube amp with a master volume.

I think the fender super champ xd is great bang for the buck for what your looking for. Check it out. Get a used one at GC for about $225. Fender clean is pretty darn good....
#16
Blackheart Killer Ant if you'd like a little overdrive at reasonable levels. Little Giant if you're more about a clean tone.

Blackhearts are more Marshall-y voiced than Fender-y voiced if that helps describe the tone.

I can't really compare it with any other tube amps because it's the only one I've ever had, however, the Vox AC4TV is in my opinion excellent for bedroom playing and with an onboard attenuator you can drop it down to 1w and 1/4w which for home use is still bloody loud. And it's should be loud enough to play with your mates if you've got any (unlike me!). Having used this for about 8 months now I'd have thought that if you went with anything bigger you'd rapidly be having trouble with you neighbors.

If you want a British-voiced amp, then I'd look into maybe a used Blackheart Handsome Devil. 15 watts, master volume, VERY loud for a low-wattage amp. I'll put it this way: My 5 watt Little Giant can play over a drummer if it's cranked.
