Yeah, i don't have alot of money and im looking for amps in the price range from 400 - 500 €
Looking for that warm-clean-sligthly overdriven tone.

Examples of tone:

I was looking at http://www.thomann.de/gb/vox_ac30vr.htm
A hybrid amp seems cheaper.

Any suggestions guys?

you can definitely get tube amps for that kind of money. I haven't tried the ac30vr but I'd be sceptical of it.

what volume do you play at?

In where we play at most of the amps get micked.
But i mostly roll tube amps up and my volume knob down for more of that drive.

Tubes give you that tone best by far. Buy used:

AC15, Laney Cub, Fender Superchamp XD, Mesa Studio 22, Fender Blues Jr, Peavey Classic 30.

Go for it!

Wow, thanks dude!
I'm checking both of them out.



I can vouch for the Laney, great amp, awesome drive.

oh ok so you're gigging then? in that case you're going to (probably- i don't gig) need at least 15W, so the really cheap 5 watters probably aren't worth considering (even if you're miked).

the laney vc30 might be worth a look too, it's only a little over budget. I thought it sounded a fair bit better than the 15.
