Alright heres my situation.

I am looking to step up from a solid state to tubes. I love to play blues, classic rock, Christian, (some punk, metal, etc. but only practice so not a priority). So pretty much a good all around amp. Pretty demanding I know.
I would mostly just use this for practice, but possibly gigs but I would probably mic it, so like 30 W.
I dont know how much I'm willing to spend, not a lot. Lets say.... less than 500? Just put some good ones out there that are less or around that and I'll figure it out.

Thanks

I just bought myself a mesa/boogie dc-5 head. 50 watts, all tube. they only run 400-600 used, very nice amp. the b-52 at 112 is 60 watts combo, all tube, its okay, definitely a good starter tube amp.

I've read that the Fender Blues Junior is good.
What about Crate 18 or 33?
any others?

crate palamino stuff is okay, just cheaply made and i really only think the clean tone is good at best.

Seriously, give the Epiphone Valve Standard and the Blues Custom a try. Very creamy, very vintage voiced. The Blues Custom runs about 500 bucks new, and the Valve Standard runs about 300 new.
