New top all this and would like some advice . I am looking to get a amp , I only want it to use at home and possibly record at a later date . I'm not interested in how loud it is in fact I want is to be on the quiet site . All i want is it to sound S**t hot . I have about £1000 to £1500 to spend

^yeah, satriani recorded his last album using only a 15 watt tube peavey, and I think that was the one. Don't quote me on that though.

Even if you're gonna use it at home, high wattage is alright. You want your investment to pay off if you are going to be gigging some day.

If the amp is too powerful though the 'sweet spot' may require it being turned up too loud for his house.

No. The Peavey Mini Colossal is a 5watt Class A tube amp costing around £400-£450 new. He recorded 1 song with it named "Mini Colossal". He recorded the last album using his usual JSX though used his new signature distortion pedal on a few songs.
