(New to the forum, be nice )

I've been a really quite poor practice amp for quite a while (15 watt, really poor quality, has a tendancy to hiss) and I am considering getting a new one soon, and just been looking at amps like 100w MG's etc, but if anyone thinks that there are even better amps (I'm not fussed about make) for a similar price, then please tell me THANKS!

mg is a bad investment. you could pick up a good used marshall tube combo amp for same price as a new sg. Look at the JCM 2000 DSL 401
Gibson 58 VOS, Gibson Rich Robinson ES-335, Fender Strat, Fender RoadWorn 50's Tele, Gibson LP Jr Special

Marshall JTM45, Fender BJR NOS

I pretty much play anything - Mainly Blues stuff or Alternative Rock styles, I love Classic rock tones in guitar solo's (Like Tony Iommi but also Eric Clapton so it's a tiny bit mixed)

Well, Iommi uses Laneys (I think), so if you're in the UK, Laney valve amps are worth a look.

Always remember that wattage does not equal loudness, tone or quality. Shop wisely and try out as many different amps as you can.

I have a vc50 for sale in the classifieds and unlike the ebay has upgraded vintage 30 speakers and has been serviced and retubed. Its a awesome amp. Im in the uk.

You probably don't need a 100 watt amp, certainly not for just practice. 15 - 30 watt all tube amp would most likely be enough for you unless you are playing outdoor festivals. The 30 watt laney would likely be a good fit, unless you could find a good Fender used. For what you play.

Personally i like Mesa, Marshall, Line 6, and Krank but i would just play around and see what you like.
