Hey UG!

My buddy is on the search for a new amp. He is currently using a Roland Micro Cube (2 watts), and has a PRS SE Singlecut on the way. Here is what he wants in an amp:

Type: Tube Combo
Size: apprx. 15w
Genre: Rock, Alternative, some Metal
Budget: $600 MAX
New/Used: Willing to go used (Kijiji)

He is mainly looking for an amp with a good clean channel to run pedals through, but a decent overdrive channel is always nice. Right now he has a Boss BD-2, a Boss TU-2, and a EHX Holy Grail Reverb. Oh, and a Digitech RP255 (i think thats the number).

Some of my ideas were a Vox AC15C1 (which i own), a Fender Blues Junior, and thats about it. I advised him to definately avoid all Spyders, MGs, an Frontmans.

Any help is appreciated

Well I'd suggest an Orange Tiny Terror combo, but it doesn't have an effects loop, and they don't make a Dual Terror combo.

If you want a $600 clean channel look at the Roland JC-120.

For metal?

Lol.

That ain't 15 watts.

TS, look into the Jet City JCA20's, Vox Night Train or even a Marshall Haze.

That's the advantage of being such a distance from Yianni. I can continue to live my life without fear of stumbling upon his dark terror.

Do any of you people read the OP?

Sweet jesus ass cream.

The closest thing I can think of at the moment is maybe a JCA 20c the 2 channel one.

Maybe an used Vox

Blackstar HT 20 would probably fit. A good clean channel, plenty of gain and an FX loop for his pedals.

Though, if he's really fussy about these things, technically it's not all tube.
