Hey... You know that I'm looking for a nice cheap tube amp. Today I thought that I'll visit a guitar shop in my city. I did it and when I came in there was a new Ashdown Fallen Angel 60H DSP (****ty name ) with Ashdown cab but I don't know what model of this cab it was so I can't tell you... so in one word..
what do you think about this amp? It's tube so it should be a pretty decent amp (in case I can tell you that I play on MG so everything for me is a decent amp ) I play the Chili Peppers and I'd like to get these nice cleans which Frooshy has
so I'm asking if with this amp I can get it... thanks for your help

To be honest the fallen angel is more of a hard rock/lighter metal amp. I'm not sure how well it does chilis type stuff.

Try looking at Laney LC/VC15, Peavey Valveking etc.

A dwarf might hear you. What then?

well I thought that Peavey Valveking is also for Metal/hard rock things...

And I saw LC15 Laney and it is said that it's tube amp but where is a standby mode? I've seen few pictures of it and there's no standby so is it a full tube or a hybrid?

I dunno, it seems to be less high-gain than the FA, although it's a worse amp in general admittedly.

Not all valve amps have standby. If an amp doesn't have a standby function you just turn it on and leave the volume at 0 for 2 or 3 minutes before turning it up.

Clips of the combo version for you.

A word about the cleans, my clip is recorded with Dimarzio Breeds, which are pretty much the fattest, warmest pickups Dimarzio make. You'll obviously get much better "sparkle" with single coils or parallel-wired humbuckers.
Actually called Mark!

No, the Fallen Angels are all valve powered. They've just got some DSp reverb and stuff.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

Yeah in response to the point about valvekings, they will not reach metal territory with some extreme OD....plus the cleans are a bit bland anyway. The Epi valve standard may be a good choice for you, depending on what situation you're playing in, in a band you may loose the headroom for your cleans but then that can be tidied up with your volume pot.

The fender champion may be a good solution for you, assuming you're not gigging or anything.
