Only try out amps in music stores, not other musician's amps they are using to play on a stage, or amps sitting in people's homes.

Price, sound, and rarity? I have no idea what your asking for, it's kind of an odd question. Make sure you're not biased towards any amps, and if it's tube, crank it!

It depends on what your looking for soundwise. If your playing blues, look at the clean channel and how it breaks up at louder volumes. If something like metal, check out how much gain it has, and if it keeps your signal clear without distoriting it too much and losing clarity. Have fun.

amazing.


anyway, go to the wembley guitar centre, you can get there by tube. Denmark street is pretty good for guitars, but pretty much sucks for amps (when I was there, at least).

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.

I went into Denmark Street on tuesday and tried out loads of amps. I'll apologise now for not knowing the shop names... There's a place called Andy's which had a 100 watt 2x12 jcm800 master lead combo for around £500. There was a small shop which had a 1970's ac30 for £425... which is a steal... I think this one had a basement full of acoustics. There's a technology place with amps upstairs where I tried a mesa stiletto... not overly impressive.... although it is a great shop.
One shop had a glass screened area to try amps in. I tried a peavey classic 30 and was very impressed.... it's only like £400.


Good luck anyway mate.
