oh and a fender bassman reissue goes for around that, and you can score a fender blues deville for like 700-800 bucks so you can still put good tubes in it and not break 1000
#6
Maybe a Marshall JCM 2000. you didn't really specify what kinda tone or volume capabilities you are looking for.
So do you have anything interesting to play?
#7
hmmm it needs to be loud enough to be heard over a half a football field and drums and 3 other guitars
...

get 2 150 watt crate full stacks and feed them with a tube preamp, thats alot of space to throw sound and with your budget you need a big fullstack that moves alot of air for pretty cheap, i dont think you'll get enough power with a 1000$ tube amp, maby a marshal but you would have to push it really really hard and it might be too quiet..
#9
Black Sabbath used Orange, and they have very nice cleans and distorted tones. Other good choices would be Mesa Boogie and Marshall, but nothing can beat trying it out yourself, just go to a guitar shop and choose your favorite.

yea, they are really nice, but they dont have the power to push a large venue like a football field.. only if you had a pa...
#11
well its not technically a football field, i meant its probly the size of a 4th of a football field(25yds long, regular with though) and its a auditorium..... i kinda feel stupid now for not saying that in the first place...
...
#12
ohhhhhhhhhh ok well then a blues deville will work fine, maby even get a 4x12 extention cab for it, that would work well with your price range, maby a hot rod deville too, they have plenty of wattage and flexability for what you need.
#14
Try out the new fender supersonic. You didn't specify what kind of music, but the supersonic covers a large base. And if it isn't loud enough, mic it.

What type of distortion, what stuff d'ya want to play? Be a bit more specific.

And you should listen to all these suggestion, except the guy who recommended 2 150w Crate stacks......

I got my JSX for 900 bucks. take a look at those, great cleans, hard to get them to break up, had to go to about 7 untill they broke up.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!
#18
peavey is the way to go...the JSX would be a good choice.

and i'm not saying that just because tubadude said the same thing.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

Yeah....we don't know what you play.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
#22
yea i only said the crate full stacks because he said he had to play for a football stadium, crates are loud, not good...at all
#23
get a Fender '69 twin reverb. It is an awesome amp, I own it. It depends on where you buy it, but it runs from 800-1500 dollars. On this site, just go up to the search bar on the home page, type in fender 69 twin reverb, and read a review on it.

The Vox AC30 works well. Try out the Fender Twin Reverb.


he wants a good distortion, so, the twin reverb is not a good option but the ac30 could do the job
#27
^ the AC30 would only do the job well if he CRANKS it (and its 30 watt class A so it would be REAAALLLLLLYYY loud...trust me i have one)

Get a smaller tube (or one thats not class A) so you can crank it
