Pretty soon, I'll be investing in a new amp. I play a lot of classic rock (Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, etc) and I'd like to get a Marshall amp, but the brand is much too expensive for my pay. Are there any nice alternatives that will give me a similar sound for 400-500 dollars or less, that have enough wattage to practice in a band?

A Peavey Classic 30 might work. Try to find one in your price range.

Don't go with the ValveKing if possible. Nasty metal tones. A Peavey Classic series amp is much better for classic rock.

^Yeah, traynors seem to get alot of praise here too.
I haven't really played one, but alot of the more experienced people on here really like them. So, they're probably a valid choice too.

Yea John (the guy above me) has a YCV40 but i know the YCV50s get closer to the marshall tone. They are all great amps.
