i tried the haze 40 a while ago, i think you'd like it for your playing style. Maybe go with the haze 15 ministack though, its only 15 watt so you can push the tubes way more without it getting too loud.

i thought the haze only had preamp tubes ( don't know sure.. )
and i would never get a stack/ministack

if you get it, just get the 40

Try a Line-6 Spider amp. Really versatile and sounds amazing with an Epiphone or Ibanez. I have had one for 3 years without any problems, it's a great product.

Seriously, stay the **** away from this crap. You'll be disapointed in 6 month if your a beginner, nd in seconds if your'e a more advanced player.

Will this be for home, or for gigging?

If you only need an amp for home, look no further than the Marshall Class 5. You'll save a lot of money, and with a pedal for GNR, it's pretty damn hard to beat for those tones.

I was really unimpressed with the Class 5. I really don't think it would do the trick by itself here... With that budget and those bands, JCM800 is the ideal option but might be a stretch to find at that price. You might want to consider a Jet City, it should cover everything well and is definitely within your price range. In fact, it would save you quite a bit of cash... If you're just playing at home, a JCA20 should do the trick.

the haze are terrible, i have played the mini stack and the combo. boat anchors.

the class 5 is IMO a little on the expensive side for what it is, is decent, but you gotta turn her up, and 5 watts still gets pretty damn loud with the volume high.

+1 for the JCA20

maybe get an 18w clone. just an idea, i built one last march and it is killer once you get it turned up and dialed in right. if you throw an OD up front that would be even better. i like the ones (like the one i built) with the post phase inverter master volume, makes it a little bit more managable for lower volumes, but i am going to dig back into my 18w and make the PPIMV switchable.

I'd put in a vote for the Blues Jr or Pro Jr. Those amps kill! The class 5 might suit you better for your style. Might think about an AC15 if you've thought about the Jr's. It runs pretty close. Not sure if you'd need the tremolo much though. Just a thought.

Grab yourself a used Peavey Windsor and a suitable cab.

They sound like a slightly less refined JCM800 (lower gain preamp tube is a must), and have all the volume anyone could ever need, for as low as $150 if you find a bargain.

1st: lulz at the grammar nazi's typo.

2nd: aerosmith used fenders, zepplin has used supros oranges and IIRC marshalls, hopefully you know what slash uses, and zz top has used fenders and marshalls.
I use my blues jr. for all those bands minus GNR. If you can eq well you can either nail or come pretty close to any of those tones with a blues jr. And since you have a LP then you should be able to get the tone you want easily.

Oh dear. If you're going to be a grammar Nazi, at least make sure you're right first.

You wouldn't ask someone "can I have an sandwich", or "I just saw an shooting star". It's a Peavey Windsor.
And if you're a troll...that was totally weak. You can do better. I believe in you.


Also Jake, the Class 5 is...mediocre at best. I hated it. Also, you haven't told us where you're going to be using it.

Your best bet is still the Bugera 1990/ Peavey Windsor plus a nice 2x12 cab, by a longshot.
