So i need a tube amp (combo).
It should be 50-100W
Price max is 1000$(new), but i hope to get a used1 .
It should sound very good with les pauls, i also have a booster pedal- Fulltone OCD .
I play mostly rock . Classic, Hard Rock and Heavy .
It should be some well-known brand which is availible in every country .
I dont need any big functions and effects in it . Just keep it simple !
I need it mostly for gigs .

Suggest me some !
thanks !

I'd recommend something from the Randall MTS series. You can find more info here:

Soundclips of modules:

Modder's Sites:

Pete/Gigmods: http://www.gigmods.com/index.html

Rob/Jaded Faith: http://jadedfaithmods.com/

Anthony/Salvation: http://salvationmods.com/

Basically the modules are interchangeable channels. Each one is designed to emulate a specific amp (Blackface = Fender Blackface, SL+ = Marshall Super Lead, etc.). They each use two preamp tubes. The modder's i mentioned above will make modifications to stock modules to make them better...whether it be replacing everything with higher quality parts or adding different switches and different valued parts to make them sound better/more versatile. Rob and Pete do mostly mods that improve the modules itself. Anthony's mods aim to emulate other amps. For instances his Loneclean aims to emulate the Mesa Lone Star...but it can do far more than that (i have it and it is very versatile). The Mash All aims to capture the greatness of several classic Marshall amps (haven't tried it, but i desperately want it). Mods are usually about $200 before shipping, which isn't bad imo.

Stock modules cost about $200 new, but i would recommend going used b/c it is cheaper. You might even be able to find some ppl selling mod'd modules on the MTS forum. You should check the classifieds there for the amp and modules...you will save a whole lot of money. Also check craigslist...ebay would be the last resort.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

Good Luck

The Mash All mod i was talking about can get 4 different Marshall amp tones. Here are some vids:

There are also three great stock Marshall modules: the JTM, SL+, and the Plexi.

there are plenty of decent marshalls. they just cost lots of money.
there are very few decent new marshalls.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer
#14
it might be ok for you? it's middle of the road i think. Overpriced new but if you can find one used for 400-500 it wouldn't be not worth it.

I didn't think it had enough gain though.

If you really want a Marshall and not a Randall MTS amp that can get any tone you desire, then this might be good...not sure...i am not familiar with Marshall's, but it looks like a good deal. It's a head, but at that price and your budget you should be able to get a nice 2x12 cab to go with it.

For god's sake, stop recommending Marshall MA series. Even Marshall employees have said it's crap, and is expected to be discontinued soon (even though it's new) for its crappiness.

Marshall MA100C combo seems really good. Someone else already suggested it. I'm going to buy it soon and I've tried it with a YJM Strat. It sounded great!!
