Hey Guys,

I'm wanting to upgrade to a tube combo amp from my Jordin PGA-10T. I play all styles of music, but mainly classic rock such as Clapton, GNR, Beatles, etc. I'm going to be using it for an at home and gigging. I live on the Gold Coast and I won't be able to get any amps shipped from overseas. Preferably a new amp up to about $750 and need to be quite versatile.

I'll be using an Ibanez SA-260FM or Lyon By Washburn 2007 Paul Stanley (if I'm really desperate) and a Behrenger V-Amp 1 with it.

Cheers,
Lachlan

Yeah, I've just decided on a Vox AC30VR and it's great.

Thanks for your help everyone

Just so you know, the AC30VR isn't a tube amp. It has a single tube somewhere in the amp, but it isn't necessarily doing much for you.

If you want to buy new and all tube, Laney VC30 is in your price range and maybe check out the LC30 too. I bought one about two weeks ago and it's great. I think it fits classic rock very well. All tube is the way to go and I realized it when I bought the Laney. It just sounds so much better than any of the solid states/digital amps I have tried. Solid states just sound boring to me now.

Did you buy the Vox yet? Because if you want Vox, you could try the AC15 (all tube version, not the VR, I think it's called AC15C1 or something). I think it's in your price range.

I've already bought the Vox, and it's a really nice amp. I knew it wasn't all tube, but it was only $400 new from Gallins Musicians Pro Shop. I think it was worth the money I paid. Great tone out of it and plenty versatile. I went from a bluesy crunch to a metal distortion with the push of a button, and plenty loud enough for at home practice.

Cheers,
Lachlan

The Ashton I posted was too far away? That was only $400 too and is a real valve amp.

If you like it, then you like it. If it feels right for you then it's good for you. As long as it sounds good, it doesn't matter if it is tube or solid state. So happy new amp day.
