There's a whole lot, but what's your budget?

If you're looking into boutique stuff, Chicago Blues Box and Bad Cat both make really good amps for blues and rock.

If you're on a more modest budget... I'd go for something like a Blues Deluxe or some fender tube combo like that.

The reissue or vintage?

I really didn't like the reissue Bluesbreaker. It sounded good, but it had a bad tone:price ratio. IMO of course.

Older, but still reissue, i think. My friends dad plays his PRS McCarty through it, and it is teh sex. But then again, I didn't shell out the cash for it, but I would if I could.

Oic.
The older reissues must have been better than the newer ones, because I didn't like the newer one I played in the store.

Marshall Bluesbreaker or Fender Twin...... those are 2 very different amps, for the record.

blues can be played on basically anything. I get some great blues on my Valve Junior V3 Combo and a few pedals.
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

^Well, the EVJ is a great blues amp.

Blues on a Randall RG50TC or something high gain like that just doesn't work well. It's just too modern sounding.
But yeah, in theory you can play blues on any amp or guitar for that matter.

The blues has alot more to do with what you have on the inside.
Just go try out alot of amps and see which one allows you to best get the music out of you.

I think the Fender Blues Jr. is one of the greatest amps ever made! Small, but it packs a punch. Unless you are playing stadiums, this little guy can get teh job done! Versatile for me: blues, funk, jazz, regae, rock.
#17
^Yes, The blues junior also has a great tone:price ratio. I wouldn't go straight to referring it to the greatest amp ever made, but it definitely is one of the best blues amps in it's price range.

^There was a local BF SR for 1650 at a local store, but it had some problems. If it was in better shape, I may have purchased it then and there.
But, the CBB had a little more... something to it.
