basically im looking for a new tube amp. one that can handle medium sized gigs and has great cleans but i can still get that frusciante slight brakeup. I play my own stuff in the band (mainly clean, with chorus) but otherwise i like rhcp, the who and otherstuff that ranges form great cleans,to punky mids distortion but nothing heavyer.
thanks

I VETO the Valveking suggestion!

It's a budget amp in the US, and a horrible value in Europe.

My first though was Fender, but being in the UK that's a little trickier. Still, if you can find something like a Hot Rod or Blues Deluxe used, I think you'll be really happy.

Otherwise, you're close to being able to afford a brand new Laney VC30 212, which is just so much nicer than the Valveking for the same money. The 1x12 is well under budget. Used, you should be able to do really well with Laney. Maybe save yourself a lot of money. 30 valve watts is plenty for medium sized gigs.
You Don't Need a halfstack.

You Don't Need 100W.

^ Deluxe. 40W is all you need, and it'll fit better in your budget, too.

agreed.

i'm not much a fan of it, but if you want more fendery tones, the laney lc30 might be worth a look too, in addition to the vc30 (which is more voxy).

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.

I recommend the Valveking for a good budget amp. Your budget is higher, so I think something else may be a better option. Fender is the king of cleans (in my opinion) but some don't think they have enough gain. I would check Marshall or Laney. I have played Marshall but not Laney.
