Well its near summer wich will mean I will have some extra cash with a summer job so I am looking for an amp to sute my needs. I have a tiny terror wich is good but it is only one channel and I realy want two or more so here is some requirments and I want to know if something like it exist

1-tube
2-low watts like between 15 and 30
3-2 or more channels
4-efects loop
5-eq for each channel
6-enof gain for Lamb of God and Children of Bodom but still has decent cleans
7-no more than $1500
8-sounds great

So does it exist??? or am I just dreaming of my perfect amp that no company will ever make.

Peavey classic 30, but I don't know what your styles are.

That doesn't have anywhere near enough gain.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I have heard about mark 4 but didn't know amount of watts

my styles are metal, hard rock, rock, blues, and jazz but the tone I am looking for from this amp is a metal tone

The Mark IV will cover all of that. It's 85 watts, but I believe it can be cut down to 22 watts, or somewhere in that area.
#8
The Mesa Mark IV has a low power switch.

"Choose Class A for two-tube operation, where clip begins around 15 watts, or Simul-Class for 85 watts of blended magic."
#9
so mark 4 is around 15-20 watts low which sounds nice and i also like the 6 or so channels but how expensive is it

also I was looking at rocker 30 but it doesn't have effects loop does the ad30 have an effects loop?

Where are you getting 6-channels from? The Mark IV has 3-channels:

1 - Rhythm I
2 - Rhythm II
3 - Lead
#11
You could find a Mark IV head or combo for under $1,500, within your budget. Check out craigslist and ebay.

The Line Six Spider III. It comes in a 30 Watt, and it's really good. It has 4 channels.

Firstly, it's not valve, and secondly, I wouldn't touch that amp with a 10' barge pole. TS, don't even consider the spider unless you want tone rabies.

Instantaneous fail.

I'm not super keen on high gain amps, but the mark IV is a great amp.

Mesa DC-3 fits all the criteria perfectly. The F30 probably too, though that doesn't have the bonus of a graphic EQ.

Otherwise any modern low-wattage tube amp with a Mesa Bottle Rocket/VisualSound Double Trouble/Fulltone Full-Drive 2 and a speaker swap will do the job very well.
#26
i know exactly what you're looking for!!! 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.

[/beating the dead "beaten to a fine powder" powdered-horse]

^ignore that. Now for my actual contribution.

For some reason until you got to high-gain, the Laney LC30 sprang to mind. It should be able to do it with a good OD pedal though. sadly thats the best advice i have to offer to this thread.
Rig Winter 2017:

Fender Jazzmaster/Yamaha SG1000
Boss TU-3, DS-2, CS-3, EHX small stone, Danelectro delay
Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp

mesa express 5:25 or 5:50 amazing cleans, should have enough gain, if not use a pedal

Used Mesa Mark IV. A Brand new one is 1850, I'm sure you can find a used one in your price range.

Actually a head is 1900+all the other fun stuff.
but a combo is 2k.


Used is the way to go, especially with the quality of mesaboogie, you should have no worries.

You could say turning on the graphic EQ adds 3 channels. Semantics, really.

+1 on the Rivera K-tre'.. best high-gain amp i've heard.. although im not really into high-gain. and the cleans are really good

The Tiny Terror with a boost? But it does not have an effects loop.
