im looking for my next amp to start saving up for... this is what i need
-nice cleans
-reverb
-tube
-under 650USD
-i want to create an o.a.r. sound with it
...i will probaly be getting a tele for some single coil twang with it. also can i just put an od infront of it and expect to play some higher gain stuff because i really dont care if the amp itself has a good disortion.
the od im thinking about is visual sounds doulble trouble.

Usually tube amps will have 2 channels, a clean and lead and your lead will have a nice crunch and more overdrive the higher you crank it so its gonna sound good but you will need a pedal for higher gain stuff at lower volume.

The Fender will be quite loud.

40 tube watts is more than you could need for almost any situation (unless you're playing arenas...).

Not really, they will deal on them to your range, (most music shops that is not MF) just be polite with the sales people and persistent. I see them used for $450-$525 if you would consider used.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

^ No, I'm saying that If you are ever in a gig situation, then you can use the Fender no problem. Oh, and it should be fine for home playing as well, as long as you keep it below the 5 marker on the volume knob.

Are you in the US or overseas? If you are in the US, there are plenty of Fender amps used. (Hold the applause Fender haters). You can find everything from the Blues Deluxe to some vintage Fender amps in your range if you are patient. Good luck.

Slaytanic listed some good pedals. Add a Proco Rat to the list.

Traynor YCV50Blue
Traynor YCV40

The first can get a good Marshall crunch, and can get a moderately decent modern hard rock tone, and the second can get good crunch and has great cleans as well.

Both are in the $500 margin, I believe.


And, yes the best tube sound is cranked. But, cranked doesn't mean 10. You can get solid, great sound around the 2 or 3 marker.

I would second the Traynors. Just missed on a YCV40 for $425... Damn it...


I'm saving up for a 5150, and checked up on eBay and one was going (with footswitch and 6L6's) for $440.

I almost cried.
