I'm gonna kick my butt long and hard for opening a "what amp" thread to add to the oh so many list of them on here, but I couldn't really find any other threads like this that tickled my fancy.

Anyways, I'm soon to purchase a new valve amp and I preferably want it to be a combo or a small half stack (head and 2x10 or 2x12 cab). I need it to have some power since I'd be playing a band. I would use it for cleans, lighter overdrive, the heaviest stuff I'd be playing would be like acdc or zeppelin. This is for pop rock and indie/alt kind of stuff. I'd be putting a few pedals in front of it as well..

I'm probably gonna buy used just because its cheaper and I'm still in highschool, and you know the whole situation. I kind of want it to be under about 500 but I suppose I can always save up a little more, you know...

So yeah if you could please throw out some reccomendations. Thanks so much!

Fender Hotrods are very nice!

But im not sure how much they are in the states.

They are real loud too, dont be fooled by the 40-60 watts!

Marshall DSL401? All tube, 40 watts so loud enough for bands and gig'ism. Beautiful tone, great for AC/DC.

If cleans are your priority, Fender is the way to go. Hot Rod or Blues Deluxe. Peavey Classic 30/50 or Delta Blues, Crate VC30 or V32. You need to plug into a few things at the local shop, see what you like, and start shopping. You really have a lot of choices in your price range for a mid-gain amp.
You Don't Need a halfstack.

You Don't Need 100W.

traynor! ycv40 (more fendery) or 50 (more marshally, from what I hear- I've only tried the 40 (and 20)). might be a little over (like maybe 150 for the 50), but I prefer them to the HRD and dsl401.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
