So Im looking to get a tube amp and Im on a bit of a budget. I play mainly blues/classic rock. The amps Im interested at the mo' are:

peavey valveking 112
http://www.zzounds.com/item--PEVVKING112

Fender blues junior
http://www.zzounds.com/item--FEN0213205000

Slightly over budget:
fender hot rod deluxe
http://www.zzounds.com/item--FEN0213202000

peavey classic 30
http://www.zzounds.com/item--PEV00583150

Anyone have an opinion on any of these amps? Any amps to add to the list?
Also do you think the fender blues junior is loud enough for band practice or jamming with a drummer?

The Peavey Windsor would do classic rock/blues really well.
It's 400 dollars, and then order a Avatar 2x12 or something.

Peavey has some major shipping problems if you live in Europe and outside the UK...
I'm waiting for 5 months now and my amp is still not deliverd

I have the peavy valveking but its the 212, and its a great amp. Very loud, sounds great. But i have a great guitar, Jackson slsmg soloist. Now i dont know what your working with but this its a budget amp, so dont think itll be amazing. And if you like heavy dist, you'll need a pedal.

Get the Hot Rod if you do blues/rock. Awesome amp, but you should save up more money for the Hot Rod DeVille, it's a beast.

I recently purchased the Hot Rod Deluxe "White Lightning" and absolutely love it! Sounds awesome and I have no regrets at all. I know it might be slightly higher than what you want to pay but save just a little bit more and you will be very happy.

Pignose G40v.

Could use a tube and speaker change when you get the chance though .

if your really on a budget, you can buy used lesser-known brands on ebay. They are pretty much all vintage amps

Yes, it's loud enough, but I'd prefer more headroom. Still, I'd buy the Blues Jr long before I bought a Valveking. The Hot Rod, Blues Deluxe, and Classic 30 are all great amps. You might want to save up for one of them if you're set on buying new. I think the difference is worth it.

This is perfect for what you are playing. I tried one at guitar center and crapped my pants.

We have the Palomino V16 in the house, and I like it a lot. Higher gain but weaker reverb than the Blues Jr. It's an option, though. So's the Peavey Delta Blues. I like that amp a lot, too.

Buying used is always my first option. Gotta do your homework when you shop on eBay, not everything's a deal, but great deals can be had if you go used. Especially if you go with something like the Crate, which is a nice amp, but does not hold it's value as well as Fender or Peavey. I bought the V16 used. The price was a big determining factor.

I wouldn't say it does blues particularly well at all, and I'd only advise it for CR if you play a lot of 80's stuff too... it is a nice amp, lol, don't get me wrong, but it wouldn't be my choice for the tones Goldengloves is after...



from the original options, I'd say either blues junior or classic 30.

traynor would be another brand I'd be looking at, they'd be nice for what you're after. Might be over budget, though.

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.
