Check out some nice combos.

ENGL Screamer would be a good shout.

Vc50 would be a better shout than the 30 imo

^Really, I thought he would want it to break up quicker Does the 50 sound different or something?

50 has more gain, higher headroom and 4 channels.

30 watts pushed to break up is actually unbearably loud in most situations so something with lots of headroom would be better for rock, punk and metalz.

It's also discontinued though

Would do the softer and cleaner stuff very well.

Not so much the heavier stuff.

Andertons.com has the Jet City JCA5212 combo for 499 it would need a boost for metal, but is an excelent amp for cleans and blues as a stand alone.

I just recently bought a Peavey Valveking 112 tube combo. I was never really a peavey fan but after this I have to say I definitely am! You'll find that you can make so many upgrades to it and make it sound nearly like a mesa if you're good enough. And you can get it cheaper than the price you're willing to spend already, hell you could even get the 212 instead of the 112 if you like. Definitely check it out. You will not go wrong!

traynor ycv50b on thomann?

screamer's a good call too if you can find one used under budget
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I wouldn't get either choice there. the "marshall tone" typically comes from cranked, often modified, high-end marshalls, not entry level ones. they're not gonna sound the way you may think/hope they will. also, why have you listed 2 cabs and a combo?

a couple choices:
-blackstar HT club 40 combo
-traynor ycv50b (very marshall like tone, but better than similarly priced units)
-peavey valveking 212

you could try
-a bugera 1990 or some other model (don'd buy used though, you may have the misfortune of getting one of the old ones that where known for their failures).
-peavey windsor w/ a boost to tighten it up a bit
-Blackstar HT studio 20
-Marshall Class 5 (though I'll have to agree with krehzeekid, lower priced marshalls just arent the same. That said the class 5 isn't so bad).
-used Marshall MA50
