Good lord. You are amazing.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

vox ac15 hands down
98 Epiphone Flying V Korina (Gibson '57 Classic and Classic Plus)

BD-2

Sovtek Mig-50
1979 Marshall 1960A (original Greenbacks)

go with a marshall MG100HDFX and an MG412 slant cab. cant go wrong with that, and im pretty sure at guitar center theyre like 600$. i dont know what they have in canada, but definitely look into it

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

Peavey Classic 30 or a Crate Palomino perhaps? including taxes, it should be less than $700 Canadian, save some money for whatever he may want to get next time

Fuck no. Please don't ever suggest that again.

Go with a Classic 30.

I heard L&M is having a sales starting this weekend, and no doubt Traynor will have discounts.

Does your friend need a practice amp or a gigging amp?
For a practice amp, the Vox that was suggested would be great.

For a gigging amp, I'm gonna have to suggest this.

Edit - ^^Ah. The Crate Palomino and Peavey Classic series would also be great.

Actually, I don't think you can go right with that.

Ha! Your name says it all. You must love the crushing overdrive on your MG10CD!

Peavey Classic 30 would probably be a good choice. Laney VC30 might work too, but I don't think it has got enough gain for what he wants to play.

oi, pipe down muppet!

If you've got $700 and you're in Canada, and you want an amp for classic rock then you buy a Traynor, it's not even a decision, it's a stone cold fact, and absolute no-braynor even...

Traynor YCV50 Blue ftw.

Made in Canada, and the best Marshall-voiced amp under 1 grand. I'd pick it over a DSL401, even.

And since all those artists your named use Marshall, I'd say it's a good choice.

This is your best advice, I advise you to take it. Traynor makes an outstanding product, and the YCV 50 Blue is a perfect fit for your friend.

alright.

i second the traynor. i haven't tried the 50, but the 40 and 20 are nice. by all accounts, the 50 is more aimed at the tones your friend wants, too (i.e. more marshally).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
