my choices:

Rivera Pubster 25

Fender Blues Junior

Peavey Classic 30 Combo

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

feel free to recomend any others, but only is you have played them please.

my styles are RHCP style of cleans, thats the most important.i also play hendrix and zeppelin, and deep purple.
i am wiling to go used.
the amp will be for home practice, for band practice with a drummer and bassist, and for small gigs infrot of like 30 people or less.

thanks alot!i hope this works!

EDIT: also, when replying with an answer, please colaborate, like say why this amp or why not the other please.thanks!

Hi,
I have been pickin' up some Arabic radio signal things. Every time I turn up my Amp, this crazy Imam starts messing up my chords.

the hot-rod is very loud, our school has one and it keeps up with the drummer on master volume 1 and channel volume at 1 1/2. So i don't recommend that unless you can play it louder at home. that said, it sounds great and has brilliant cleans and nice classic overdrive.

Cant give any advise on the other amps though.

I tried the Classic 30 last week and was very impressed with it. Nice cleans, and a great classic rock sound for Zeppelin and such, and that was at a relatively low volume. Once you get the power amp valves working it should sound great.

If you can get the Rivera go for it for sure. But if you wanna save some dollar go for the Peavey C30. It goes upto Led Zep gain and has rather sparkly Fender-esque cleans....
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

I vote for you to add a Traynor YCV40 to the list. It's in your budget, and has great cleans, perfect for RHCP, and a way better drive channels than the Hotrod, not to mention separate EQ's for each channel.

Traynors arent available in israel, what would be the best after that in your opinion?

Easily blows away every other amp on the list.

What happened to the cheap Peavey you were asking about before?

Next up would probably be the Hot Rod if cleans are your priority.

i realized the peavey was a peice of ****, duo to some reviews.

and do you think the rivera will have a better clean than the hot rod?thats my main thing, cleans.i just checked out the rivera site and the samples of this thing sounds awsome in overdrive.they didnt have a clean sample tough, so if someone can tell me a little about the rivera's cleans that would be awsome

thanks slatsmania!

Honestly, the Hot Rod will probably have better cleans, and with 15 more watts, it'll have more clean headroom, too. In the same class of amp, I prefer the Blues Deluxe or the Peavey Delta Blues, though.

But the Rivera will have very nice cleans in it's own right. The Rivera concept is Fender cleans on one channel, Mesa OD on the other. It's an ass-kicking amp.

I would go with the Rivera, but as always, it's best if you can try 'em yourself.

Rivera Pubsters really are ****ing amazing. Any Rivera is ****ing amazing! The Pubster has great crystal clear cleans and nice crunchy overdrive. Check out the Rivera site, they have sound samples. Definitely Pubster though.
