Are there any blues artists whose tone you would you like to emulate?

Also what is your budget?

I think Robin Trower uses Marshall for the most part, but I'm not sure.

I'd suggest you try a Marshall Class 5, and if you like it look for a used one. In my opinion it can get some great crunch, and by rolling off your volume it cleans up nicely.

If you intend to mainly play clean, however, I would second the recommendation for a used Fender Blues Jr. Then later maybe pick up a nice overdrive pedal to drive it a bit.
