Hi all,

My first post in a while. Im thinking of getting a new amp, my specifications are

- Around 50w
- All valve
- Great distortion channel
- Aimed at playing Classic Rock
- under £500
- Combo

I know of some Marshall amps, but they are a bit expensive, so I would like to know if there's anything else that would suit what I want, that isnt a Marshall, to help me get a broader view of whats good out there.

Thanks

you can get the marshall Haze, which is probably the cheapest tubed marshall there is, but i chose the Orange Tiny Terror over it cause the distortion is much better, only one channel though

you could try a Bugera, though i've heard some horror stories about them. also Marshall Haze dont sound THAT bad, i'd actually own one if i had the cash
DIMETHYLTRYPTAMINE

what do you mean by classic rock?

do you need multiple channels?

do you need pristine cleans at gig volume?

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.

A lot of this depends on what you mean by classic rock tone.

I think the most common classic rock tone that most people end up referring to is that Zeppelin, Allman Brothers, Free, Cream, Hendrix tone that was just Marshall plexi heads pumping out loud rock into 4x12s. In that case, look at something like a JCA20 or JCA50.

take a look at the Kustom coupe series. I own the 1x12 36' and in my opinion, it is a killer amp for anything from blues to moderate hard rock. It has crystal clear cleans and awesome rock n' roll distortion. Don't let the 36' watts fool you either, it's a fu$king loud amp.

^ it's nice but it's very expensive here in the UK. I suspect it'd be way over budget.

^^ i was thinking of the 18 watter if he doesn't need bells and whistles, or headroom (lol).

worth keeping an eye out, occasionally you see a good deal, of course.

Laney VC30, used orange rocker 30/new thunder 30/Tiny Terror/Dual Terror, Hayden MoFo, 18 watt clone, Jet City JCA, Marshall DSL401. As mentioned what bands best sum up your sound and do you need clean cleans at high volumes?
