Hi all,

I'm looking for a guitar amp and I could do with some advice. Here are my specs:

At least two channels
Loud enough to gig with
Can give me a classic rock style sound
Under £500

Any ideas?

Thanks, James

Peavey Classic 30
Peavey Ultra/JSX/XXX/Triumph
Peavey Butcher
Peavey VTM
Jet City JCA 50 watters (have to do some research, there are two different 50 watt circuits)

Off the top of my head those are some to look for, all used.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

The Traynor YCV20, I've got two, love them to death. Very similar to the Peavey classic, but with a bit more dirt on the dirty channel. Good cleans and excellent overdrive. Perfect for your more classic rock.

Piano dick had some good parts, but should have said "As the business man slowly gets boned", would have accented the whole dick feeling of the album

Peavey Classic 50?


I could list a few amps off but "classic rock" is a bit of a large area. any particular bands you want to sound similar to?

All of these and the Traynor are all very solid choices, although the XXX may be a bit modern sounding for your taste. Also add in a Laney AOR to the list

My Laney VC30 does an excellent classic rock sound that works well with my band. I'd definitely recommend trying one of those.

The Jet City amps are always worth investigation as well.

AOR's are a gamble. Be prepared to replace all the tube sockets.

if thomann gets them back into stock the traynor ycv50b maybe? heard some complaints about reliability/how easy they are to work on, though, but you don't have a ton of options at your budget. the laney vc30 is a good shout but really needs a speaker upgrade (and they're not as good value as they used to be).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
