hi guys.

Im looking for a bedroom amp, doesnt need to be too small as ill be moving out soon.

Price: £200 - £300.

I would like to create sounds that are similar to arctic monkeys, some rhcp and possibly to stretch as far as blink 182 punk sounds.

Also, if possible, a few suggestions on pedals, to go with the amp.

would appreciate the input. Thanks.
Fuck it.

marshall class 5 you'll probably need some pedals for it but it's syill a good amp for what you want.
blackstar ht-5 very versatile amp slightly over you budget but still worth a look at

For a bedroom amp, you can't go wrong with a Flextone series. They're cheap as hell on the used market as well - mine was under $100 shipped to my door.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

The Bugers V5s are pretty solid. They are 5w all-tube EL-84. It attenuates from 5, 1, and .1 watts so you can still crank the gain on bedroom volume.

Out of all the amps mentioned i like the Blackstar HT-5 and the class 5 the best. Maybe a peavey classic 30. The vox or fender probably wouldn't be bad either for what you are playing.

something with a master volume.... I run my AC15 at bedroom levels quite easily.

Ignore everyone else.

Get a Laney VC15.

I like how he says ignor everyone, but doesn't give a single reason why that would be a good choice for the TS

you really think someone with the username beckyjc is gonna be a "he"

also there doesn't need to be any reasons. if you've tried a laney VC15 or VC30 you'll know exactly why there's no need for any reasons
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Agree with the recommendations for a Laney VC-15. Good for those sorts of sounds, sounds nice at low volumes, and can keep up with a band.

Doesn't mean we need to explain why the VC15 would be a good choice for the kind of sounds the threadstarter is going for. It just is

Its a good priced amp, enough headroom for jamming in the future, more features than most amps in the price range, handles effects well, sounds nice at bedroom volumes, comes with good quality valves, british voicing, warm punchy beautifull cleans, gritty low-mid gain drive channel perfect for what TS wants.

Its designed as a budget alternative to the vox ac series, a well famed amp used by many indie bands.

Chill man.

i agree with becky.

those 5 watters are loud if they don't have a master volume or attenuator/powerscaling (a couple do).

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.
