First post!
Anyone know a good practice amp for the home for around £500 / $750?

Not for gigging, just around the house. I got a Les Paul custom and telecaster deluxe so looking for an amp versatile enough to go from hard rock to twang. Ideally looking for warm tone and gain at moderate levels I guess.

I have spotted the Marshall Haze but know nothing about them what are they like?

Cheers

The Haze sounds pretty bad, IMO. Just... lifeless, flat.

IMO, the Peavey Vypyr Tube is the ultimate practice amp. You could get the 60W combo and a Sanpera I or II easily in your budget.

Not sure if you're looking for a simple amp or not though.

In particular, what bands tones would you like to sound like?

I've heard good things about Blackstars. I've heard absolutely amazing things about their clean channels, and I've heard that their dirty is suited for metal up until Metallica. Anything gainer than that would need a pedal. Check out the HT-5 or the HT-20. I'm still trying to get in somewhere to play one.

thanks I'll look into them. Yes looking for a simple amp ideally


the big problem is that it's hard to get a simple amp which does such a wide range of tones... you might have to compromise either on the simiplicity or the range of tones available.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

You might disagree, but i've always loved a Blues Jr with a drive pedal on the top of it.

yep, sure, though it does depend on the subjectivity of the word "simple". for some people "simple" means a volume and tone knob, in which case the screamer is still pretty complex.

But I agree, i mean personally i'd consider the screamer pretty simple, certainly considering the number of channels and range of tones in there.
