Yo UG

I'm after preferably a head and a cab (although I will consider combos) with a fairly low wattage for home use. Ideally 50 or less.
Ideally at least 2 channels
Needs to be able to cope with high gain stuff (please do not suggest a 6505 combo.) but versatile clean/crunch would be a bonus. Idk really, just a jack of all trades
I mainly play hardcore (both old punkish hardcore and the more modern ballsy hardcore) a bit of metal, but I do like to jam with some blues too.
I have a peavey jsx for my band through an orange ppc412 and then at home I have a line 6 spider... -cringe-
I'm not after a jsx combo either, i want something else to mess about with at home

I'd ideally like to spend less than £700 but i can stretch to £1000 if needs be :/
Not fussed whether its new or used!


hope i've covered everything for you pedantic fellows :p
Cheers!

Look at Jet City amps, but if your just playing at home you want A LOT less than 50w, assuming we're talking valve amps. Look at the Orange Tiny Terror, Jet City PicoValve, etc. Also, check out a company called Sheldon, they do boutique valve amps at a pretty reasonable price, check out the TrueTone 3.

thanks for the suggestions man
I said 50w as I like amps with more of an EQ section than the tiny terror and amps with a bit more wattage tend to have more EQ. As far as i know anyway
I like to mess about a bit, i know pedals are an obvious option but idk, i often prefer the amps own sound, like i don't use any OD pedals for my jsx as i think alone it has a great OD channel on it

I'll look into sheldon, haven't heard of them before

the big problem is that most of the lower wattage amps are more aimed at lower gain tones. and at really low home volumes you're not pushing a lower wattage amp much, either.

just be careful you're not spending money for the sake of it.

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.

doesn't sound like it'd be a good choice for your tone but the deluxe reverb is a great amp and is one of the best amps for pedals

Big deal?

They're pretty much built for high gain. So much br00tlz in the 1 water.....

Yeah, I saw your post and recommended the vypyr tube. But its up to you, not us stalkers on the web. Get what you want, were just stating what sounds good from our perspective.

Don't really like the cleans iv the HTs but the reverb is delicious.

The HT series is good (except the HT-1 IMO).
I'd take an HT-40 or 60 over a 6505 - which everyone recommends for metal - any day.

Really good for high gain, but they also have useable medium gain tones and nice cleans, which is IMO not the case with the 6505.

No problem


Both are not that great examples though.

The JCA50/100 will have noticably better cleans than your 20.
And the higher wattage HTs will give much better clean tones as well.
