Im about to buy a 18 watt Trinity plexi clone (Based on the 1974 marshall model) but I want to make sure I am not missing out on a cheaper alternative. (Looking for a hendrix tone)

I saw this video of the Blackstar Ht20 and the guy was able to get some pretty good tones out of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MOXCh5qOds

Loud enough to jam with a drummer?

Any other solid alternative? I don't like the Egnater Rebel 20 and I think the Marshall Class 5 will be too quiet.


Thanks

Not heard of the trinity but i'm pretty sure a plexi clone will get you closer to hendrix then blackstar clipping diodez

I vote blackstar. It should be loud enough to jam with, and if you can't get that Hendrix tone you can always buy a pedal with the money you saved.

I currently have a MJM London Germanium fuzz, a voodoo lab microvibe and a crybaby classic. No need to spend more on pedals. Maybe get a vox wah cause my crybaby sounds bad

Actually, I should try the Tweaker if I can find one, people keep saying its a really solid amp that can do a plexi tone. And If I can save 200-300$ :/

The blackstar has a really pleasant, solid all round tone. I have the HT20H and a Vox 12" speaker cab and I would say it's easily loud enough to compete with a drummer.
As for a hendrix tone, I would say get a valve amp with a warm clean tone, a strat, a good fuzz, a vox wah, a vibe pedal or an octave pedal and you are there.
