Aloha fellow tone junkies, i'm looking to sell my Orange AD30 Head at the moment , I plan to use half of the money I get for it to go towards a van for my band but the other half I intend on using to get another amp. My main amp is my Orange Rocker 30 but from experience I believe it's always best to have a back up or second amp laying about.

Assuming I get between £700-£600 for the AD30 that leaves me with around 350-300 to play with for a second amp.

I've been thinking of getting a 50-100 watt amp as it would be something different to the Orange plus it'd be nice to have some more head room.

Usually I've only wanted head's but I'm starting to think a 1x12 combo may be cool too.

So I ask you what would you suggest for this price range for a tube head or 1x12 combo? Not interested in Marshalls what so ever just before anyone suggests any, I find them very boring. I play stuff like QOTSA, Mastodon, Torche, Big Business, Melvins, Led Zeppelin etc

You have to be careful with AOR's. They had dodgey tube sockets. If hitting the top of the amp with your fist makes it go pop, walk away - unless you are prepared to swap out the sockets.

He might be able to score an old GH50/100, but I think even VH100r run over 350GBP

The GH would be a fine option - you'll just have to learn all the old single channel tricks (ie guitar volume knob and OD/boost pedal)

Hmmmmm not really a fan of blackstar, a friend of mine has had nothing but problems with his. I managed to find a couple of the Laney's on ebay, seem to be around 350-450 mark, i'll have to youtube them and see what I think
