I currently own an SG by epi and i was wondering what tube amp would be best for music such as Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Guns n' roses, and other older bands. I'm starting to learn other things that are somewhat bluesy, so i need a good all around tube amp. Not a Metal amp. Keep it cheap though, only about 700 US Dollars.
Thanx for the Help

I'm not sure about the prices in USA, but a Peavey Classic 30 would do that type of music nicely. Maybe you would need an od for some additional gain.

The Fender blues deluxe, the peavey classic 30, and the palomino v32 30 watt amp.
those stand out to me the most.
the traynor has too much power, and the other peavey just looked really weird
but that doesn't mean it's out of the question.

i've heard really good things about the delta blues, and it comes in a 2x10 as well.
and yeah for bedroom practice, those are all pretty loud, but they still sound great.

If you could choose one of these amps for my price range and my style which one would you pick.
and also do you have any experience with these amps

I would go with the Peavey Classic 30.

I own the 15watt version of the Crate Palomino, and the Classic 30 has the same vintage sound as the Palomino but has a tad bit more gain to play with.

Yup, both from my experiance are great i've played the Crate V32 and the Classic 30.

I actually preferred the Crate a bit more but they are both brilliant amps you should try.


BTW the Blues Junior isn't a bad one either I think, nice cleans and gets some nice crunch at the lower volumes. I couldn't stop playing one today at Guitar Center. I think you can use it with a band for jamming but not sure about that.

However of those Unsigned linked you to should be good, at this point it's a matter of trying these amps out and choosing the one you like best.
The Classic 30, Crate Palomino, and Blues Junior might be your best choices due to the size and overall sound, but only you can decide.

hm, i'd go with he palomino personally, but i haven't played the classic 30, which seems like a very good competitor.

i played my friend's blues deluxe for a while last night, and it has very amazing cleans, and it's drive channel is very warm and organic (unlike fender's hot rod series). but for most of your styles, i don't think it'd have enough gain on its own without an od pedal.

go out and try a bunch if you can, since it's your rig ha.

I've seen used Classic 30's go as low as $150. Definitely take some time out to try one out.
