I'm under a tight budget in order to save up for my next guitar, but this is a must first.

I'm looking for an amp with good cleans and real nice tube break up, that's very important.

It would be cool for it to feature an option to switch to low wattage,and generally all under 50w.

2 channels would be cool but not needed.

I play funk, blues, and hendrix at the moment.

Because he is an area of study that can be considered something of interest when choosing a new amp.

the only ac15 I could afford is the ac15vr

Blues jr. is a good suggestion, though I'm not sure if I will truly utilize the fat switch much.

what is it that you like?

EDIT: saw your sig.

How does the FAT switch color the tone? Is it similar to the BOLD switch of other tube amps?

I was about to second the Handsome Devil actually, they're Marshally amps so it sounds perfect. I'd also recommend you check out the Egnater Tweaker, Jet City JCA20 and Epiphone Valve Senior.

A Peavey Classic 30 would be great, or the Traynor forsaknazrael recommended.

Peavey Classic 30?

Also, your username is groovy as hell.


Groovy name for a guy that love to groove

But with all seriousness: Peavey Classic 30 vs. The Handsome Devil makes me lean towards the blackheart to be honest. It's tone just seems more appealing to what I want to do. Any perks to the Classic 30 over the H.D.?

Does either the traynor or the Egnater have a pentode or triode switch? I really like this feature on the blackheart, which can really allow some personal grit and color.

i like it, others don't. i think the stock preamp tubes suck.

check out that vht i linked. that's a hella amp for $325 imo.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Pft, that guy is in newhall, I highly doubt he would drive out to the inland empire.

I went to my G.C. today and the guy there claimed they stopped carrying Blackheart Amps

Now i'm kinda sad because i really wanted that "new amp" feeling for a little practice amp. I could always order online but it just isn't the same.

JCA20 is under $500 is it not? Maybe look at that.

So then the tweaker's drive channel is tasty as hell?


No. It sounds like your seeking a natural, tube sounding amp to me. The dynamics on that egnater are just not there, it made me appreciate my peavey classic so much more.

It is compressed and the hot channel has almost no presence, no matter how high you turn the treble/mids. It has a decent amount of gain but most of it is not usuable, the clean channel is all i found on this amp that was usable, and that was just okay.

You can do infinitely better than an Egnater Tweaker for the money IMO.
