Hey all,

Looking for some advice regarding an eventual amp purchase I intend to make. It's been about four years since I've picked up a guitar or paid attention to new products, so I don't know much in regards to recent amps.

What I'm looking for is an amp that has more of a British voicing, something that can do some Cream and Pink Floyd tones, with perhaps enough upside to do some Hendrix stuff. Definitely not high wattage, definitely not anything over 30. I would actually prefer something in the 15 range. No frills necessary, I would be fine with a single input, channel, a volume control, and a simple EQ. Anything above that is a luxury.
Either head or combo would be fine, but a head would be preferred. I'm totally fine with used.

My price range would be AROUND $500 USD, but this will be an amp that I will eventually plan on getting, so I can save up a bit more if need be. However, I don't feel like dropping Bad Cat money on something.

Thanks.

Check out the Marshall Class 5 if you'd do 5 watts. It does Cream and Hendrix fairly well but.

Marshall Class 5 is a contender, also Orange Tiny Terror. Hit some youtube demos on these and see what you think.

But what?

Thanks for the help thus far, I somehow forgot about the Tiny Terrors. I remember being pretty impressed when I tried one out all those years ago.

TTs are nice for the price, no question.

I think I was going to say it doesn't have a lot of headroom but I'm not sure. For 5 watts it is definitely loud.

The JCA20H is great, but not really for that. Maybe if you wanted a more saturated, smoother, and thicker classic rock sound. That being said, I would use my Jet City for any type of music because it is articulate with any amount of gain and lets the character of each guitar really shine.

I have the class 5, night train and OR15. The orange is far superior for overdriven tones, the vox is the most versatile and the Marshall is OK, but in never really bonded with it. I've owned a TT as well and like the OR15 much better.

Seriously, I'm not a fan of iphones and guitars mixing.

no. not near British voiced, and IMO over hyped and i owned a few. then ditched them.

not the solution for everhing.

OP look into an 18 watt clone (1974X) for reasonable quiet levels, make sure it has a PPIMV (post phase inverter master volume)
