Heading into the studio in a month or so and a few tracks have to be noisey in that modern kinda way.
I know a POD could do it but first preference is an analogue old skool way.

lolz why didn't I think that applied???

Budget: Um, well this is the point of the question cos let's say someone had chimed in with "Amp XYZ will do all that and it only costs £xyz" then that would be the answer. But let's just say up to £500. More, like double, if it's super-amazing and if I can get it on 0% finance.

Genre: as above. Cleans not important, but if they're nice that's just a bonus.

Home or gig: Recording and home only. Unless it's a good solid state cos I don't trust tube amps for live gigging (YEAH I SAID IT!)

New or used: New preferably.

Current gear: Only my Peavey Bandit would come close to being useable, the others ones are small and for bluesy stuff.

Despite everything you just said...

I just picked up a used Mesa Single Rec Rectoverb 50 for $490

It is over 13 years old and looks, sounds, and performs better than anything else I've played for $490 or less. Oh....and guess what? It pretty much nails Wes' tone.

Would you take $600 shipped?

Honestly.

I probably wouldn't sell it for $1,000

Also, I know tubes seem fragile and all but in the real world of tube amps - tube amps are much easier to diagnose and repair out in the field. Any joe can troubleshoot some tube issues and run to Guitar Center and buy a new tube. Try tracing out a solid state circuit path and swapping those parts out behind the stage 45 minutes before a gig

And I personally would much rather listen to Wes Borland playing a tubed Rectifier than some POS Solid State amp. Yep - I said it.

PS: Wes uses lots of cleans in his work too - so you may want to rethink that part as well.

Good luck mang,

Nice try. Across the pond that'd probably be a loss for him.

Reliability wise, tubes are like travelling by helicopter - a crash is survivable. SS are like aeroplanes, it'll pretty much never happen but if it does crash, instant death.

Pritchard amps > all other amps.
If only I lived in the US I'd have one. $400 on shipping alone makes me cry.

Not sure on your flight options comparison there

I thought you were saying you wouldn't gig with a tube amp because they are not reliable.

Pritchard amps are great. Would I buy one for Limp Bizkit types tones? Probably not. Hmm, Wes through a Prichard

I know we are taking each others posts out of context a bit. So you are in the $500-$1000 Pound range and you want Wes (Bizkit) tones? Cleans not as important.? Hmmm.

What about a used Engl Thunder. The 60w Thunder I played was righteous. Also, have you played a B52 AT100 by chance mate?

Helicopters crash a lot more regularly than planes, trust me.

Engl is a well known brand, not heard of the other one you mention.
Ok thanks, that's a start I can research further from.

No prob.

A Marshall DSL100 should be readily available to you in the UK market used at the 600 lb mark I would think. Maybe a bit higher. Also, see if you can find an Orange Rocker 30 or a Rockerverb (any one of them). Failing that, I'm pretty happy with my Peavey Vypyr tube 60 I got for $300 USD. Nice piece of kit and can cop most tones fairly well.

All of the amps I've mentioned in this thread have nice cleans BTW.
