Basically i dont have the funds to get the above amp although i really, really like the tone from them.

Can any of you guys suggest a good alternative max of about £150.

US dollars that's like 375 right?

Are you willing to go used?

Hmm, get a Vox Valvetronix, that's the best you'll get for that price, great sounding though.
