So, I've pretty much restricted myself to playing (trying to) Clapton, Gary Moore, Knopfler, Jeff Beck and Page. So I just needed help with what amplifier would help me get their tone. Obviously, it would be a Marshall......played through an LP.....but any specific model????

Thanks Osman

Personally, I don't think you will find a Marshall new that will fit the bill for you.

However-

New?

The Marshall DSL401 combo is the only Marshall I see worth buying and it is a bit over budget. I'd be hesitant on that amp. There is a H&K Statesman Quad with EL84s that might work. The Peavey Classic 30 might work. Maybe look into that Blackstar HT40 with EL34s. Laney VC30.

I have zero experience with the H&K or the Laney.

The Engl Thunder 50 is a cool amp but not really voiced right.

Also, I heard that Thomann was selling the Traynor YCV50B at a good price - that would almost perfect for you.


Used?

Open up all kinds of options. A JTM45 might be perfect. Unfortunately the only RI I've played (1987x) just left me scratching my head.

Some people feel that the amp is where the tone is and is the most important part of your signal chain. The guitar is just there to take the musicians emotions and get them to the amp to be amplified.
