What is the best tube amp in the $700 dollar area? I need some ideas for some amps to try out.
a little under your price range, but the fender hotrod deluxe is a fine specimen. We could use a little more information though. what type of music do you play? what guitar are you using? what sound are you looking for?

I play all types of music except say death metal, my guitar is in my signature. But I am going to run pedals through it regardless.
I'd recommend a B-52 AT-100 or AT-212, depending on whether you want a head or a cab. Extremely versatile, 100 watts all-tube, (although the stock tubes can use a change). Another one to look into is the Carvin MTS. I bought one on eBay last week and I don't have it yet, but I can let you know how it sounds when I do.
Thanks for the help guys. Anyone else want to help me out some more?
