Ok, im in the market for a new amp, im looking for a tube head. My budget is 600$USD.
I play things like RHCP, Pearl Jam, The Pillows, and other alt rock-ish stuff, with some blues. no need for the amp to do any sort of high-gain metal or anything. The two main amps ive been looking at that are in my price range are the Orange Tiny Terror and the Crate Palomino(sp) 32VH. Would either of thoes be alright for what im playing, and what are some alternatives? Any help will be appreciated.

i think the Tiny Terror would do nicely. $600 for a decent amp head is kinda tight budget, but if you can look used, a used JCM800 might be okay too. do you gig/jam with a loud drummer?

and uh... why head?

a head because i go between two houses frequently and have a cab at each house, so it would be easier to take a head than a combo.

and no, i never really play with a drummer, just a bassist

edit: i didnt know you could find a JCM800 for $600, my friend has one and i love how it sounds, but i always thought they were more than that (even used)

^cool.

yes. go buy a tiny terror. be a happy man before some kid comes in recommending First Act amps... god.


JCM800s under $600 is hard to find on eBay, but there are many cases people here bought them for under 600. I've seen many auctions (i'm 17 so can't buy from eBay) that ended up going for less than 600 too.

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

sovteks aren't bad. they're just groove tube matched sovteks aren't they?

i prefer tung-sols though.
