SO I'm looking around for a cheap-ish great sounding tube amp. I'm very interested in the Pevey Classic 30, Peavey Valve King 112, Vox AC15CC (the only I've been able to test yet), and the Fender Blues Jr. I play lots of stuff but most importantly for me I want alot of crunch by itself or with a pedal and I want really nice cleans (If you've heard Portugal the man, that's basically what I want). Please help.
This is something that I always recommend, but...
Peavey Valveking 112 50 watt combos are the best deal if buying new. Very versatile, from good cleans to blues to classic rock to Randy Rhoads era metal. A little more modern gain than the Classic, but try both. All the amps you listed are excellent.
Anyone else have an opinion
They're both right. The Valveking is a good value new (with a slightly more modern voicing), the Classic is a great value used. THe AC15 is orgasmatic, but more exensive than both. I'd vote for a Pro Junior or Blues Junior with an overdrive, or the AC15 with an overdrive if you have the cash.
