Hi, Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions. I've been searching for a while now and I'm finding it hard to get any good info.

Currently thinking about purchasing either the;

*Hughes and Kettner statesman Dual head
*Fender VM Band Master head

I'm focusing on the heads because I've got a 4x12 cab loaded with V30s.

But It's fine to put up a combo because hauling a 4x12 around is a bitch but nice to have about.

It's to be used with a Fairly old Mexican Telecaster with American Alnico Pickups.

Minimal watts about 30? with a £500ish budget.


Thanks!

Roland JC-120 braaaaa git it git it. Love the cleans on that thing. Also - the modded JCA20H (available on their website) for the clean mod works wonders as a pedal-head, or so I've heard.

Looking for some 'Earth'/ 'Barn Owl'/ 'Bill Frisell' cleans.. Clean and rich but can also have some Earth style dirt added if you get what I mean.

Thanks Oceans between us, I'll check them out.

Are you Oceans between us? Because I've played with that band before a few times.

It also needs to be powerful enough for live events with drums, I'm unsure about what power to use as a minimum because my current amp is a Randall ss 200 watt head...

You want awesome cleans?
Get a Vox AC30 or an AC15. You might get lucky and find one used in your budget.
I'd go for the AC30 myself. Already have one and am looking for a 2nd.

Need dirt? Get an OD pedal to go with it.

I'll second the Roland JC120. Or...do you like Fender cleans?

Fender I guess, I've used the twin reverb and a Hot rod deluxe before and they sounded sweet.

I'll check out the laney VC30, is it a rip off of the vox Ac by any chance?

You could ebay a Vox AC30 or Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue for that budget.

I know because I did it on both (didn't buy the AC30 though) last summer.

I've only ever heard good things about Laney amps as well. Not had a chance to play though.

My recommendation would be one of the Fender blackface reissues.
