So... my Marshall died.
I'm not sure how he did it, but my brother managed to completely kill it while I'm at college. Apparently the speaker is blown, the tubes are destroyed, and the wiring is ****ed out the wahzoo.
So, I get to use his savings and buy a new one!

So with this in mind, what's a good amp I can get for about $600. I don't really have any preference for tubes over solid state or anything, I've just got to be able to play some sweet blues and classic rock on it. I'd like it to be able to handle most everything though, as I play metal occasionally as well. I don't really want another Marshall... I wasn't really happy with that one, but I'd prefer it to have at least 50 watts.

Let the opinions roll!!!

EDIT: Oops, I meant $700. I hit the wrong key, lol

Actually, that's not bad at all...
I played through a Peavey when I was in my schools jazz band, and I really liked the amp. (I tried to buy it off the school, lol)

Oh, and for the record, when I'm back at my house for Christmas I'm going to be going to Guitar Center to try out any amps that are suggested

the Classic 30 will do anything up to hard rock and some heavy metal with a boost and high output pickups
or
Kustom Defender would be worth considering too

Well, it was a Marshall MA100C. I got it for my birthday just this April, and I sort of liked it... I traded in my old MG15DFX for it, and while I loved my little Marshall, I didn't really like the 100 watt one as much... I think it was just too big... lol I never really pushed it, and usually played it on a lower volume. But now I have my Pignose for low volume stuff, and I only gigged with the Marshall once, and that was for a school talent show, lol
But I really liked it at high volumes, but I sorta want to try out something else.
And really I'd just like peoples opinions on which amps I should try out the next time I'm at Guitar Center.

Oh, and my local Craigslist is shit, lol

Then it sounds like I'd like the Classic 30 for sure. I don't usually play metal, and if I do it's 80's metal, Crazy Train and such. Occasionally some Sabbath and Metallica.

I'm gonna try out some Marshalls and maybe a few Fenders, but I'll definitely check out Peaveys now too.

EDIT: Didn't see that post about the Kustom, lol
I just checked it out, and I've never even seen one of those before. Regardless, it looks really good and pretty much a perfect model of what I'm looking for.

i saw one on my c-list the other day for a similar price, i think it was $275, but who knows i may have been able to get it for $250.

i have enough amps that do that tone though, and one if not two that do it better . and i am looking for a Vox AC, atm.

its a good amp though.

I found a 6505 2x12 for $400. Is that any good?
Other than that everything is either too expensive or too far away.

lightly overdriven blues to moderate heavy classic rock. i have played them before, and they are good amps. i like them. its just i have no reason to buy one because i have amps that get me a similar enough tone, and that may do it better.

Fair enough.

It is a bit different sounding than your amps to my ear. But them again mine is an older model and doesn't really sound like any other classic I've played or heard.

I am, lol
I'm getting pretty much the entirety of the budget from what he's been saving for a while ($400). I'm willing to put in about $300 of my own money if it means getting a good replacement amp though (where I get the $700). I may wait until Christmas so he has more money, lol

I believe he is.

Oh, indubitably. I really didn't like that Marshall that much. I got it at a pawn shop for $400 used, and I think there was something wrong with it off the bat. It started sounding odd and now it's just plain explody. idk, I bought it off of previous experience with my 15w solid state practice marshall (which I loved) and it just didn't add up.

Well, he's said that he'd help me pay for it, but whether or not my parents will let him is another story... I may end up footing this bill... which really sucks. But that's what I get for being born first.
