I have a Fender Hotrod Deluxe which is great for cleans but it doesn't get fuzzed up or overdrive in the same way that a tube Marshall would. I like the way it overdrives with my two overdrive pedals but I'm sure through a Marshall I would like it more. And certainly the fuzz would sound even better through the Marshall. What I'm wondering is are there any lower priced Marshall combos. Actually it can be like a clone too I don't care, just as long as the clone gets me the ballsy marshall tone I'm after.

well the best clones for decent prices would be Ceriatone, check them out, yo ucan ge them prebuilt or build one yourself.

Look for a Traynor YCV 50 Blue. They have a very Marshall-esque voice to them. And really, lots of amps have a ballsier crunch to them than Fender. You might be satisfied with the gain from a Palomino or Classic 30. The cleans on the HRD are great, but it's not a great hard rock amp.

BTW, I like fuzz boxes thru cleans. I'm not sure you'd like that better thru a Marshall.

No no i still want the fuzz through a clean sounding marshall thats just like beginning to break up probably like a JTM I like a good Hendrixy, Trowery, David Gilmouresque tone. Psychedelic.

^^^ I dont play hard rock I play more Psychedelic rock that sometimes gets a little heavier but I have a big muff for that

Another +1 for the Traynor.

-anxiously awaiting the day when the world realizes that Traynor makes some awesome stuff.

Even a used vintage Traynor doesn't run ya up too much, and some of them were just like old Fender Bassmans and Marshall JTMs.


The old Traynors are awesome and built like tanks. I'd love one, but not everyone wants a vintage amp. Tube amps seem to be scary enough for a lot of folks around here.

Best thing to do is check eBay. Prices are going up. There's a guy on there looking for a starting bid of over $500 on a YBA-1. Great amp, literally a Plexi clone, but that's getting up there. There's another one under $300 you could watch. They're originally bass amps, but then again so was the Fender Bassman (which the Plexi is based on!).

The YRM is the old guitar amp, also great, and maybe available for less. Those YBA's have really caught on.

Yeah....I'm really disappointed about that. I won't have enough money for one for a while, so by the time I set aside enough, they'll have gone up a significant amount...

My 1970s Traynor cab has been through hell in back over the years, but is it still fantastic. Besides older (like 70s) Traynor stuff, you should give some early Marshall Valvestates a look.
