Help me turn my list of wanted amps into a single wanted amp.

I want an all-tube combo amp that works good for classic rock, blues, alternative, etc.

Here are my choices, help me decide which one. (don't recommend anything else that isn't hear please, i don't want to hear it.)

Peavey Valveking 112 50w 1X12 tube combo
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Peavey-ValveKing-112-Combo-Amp-104003397-i1145634.gc

Crate V33-212 33w 2X12 tube combo
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Crate-V-Series-V33-212-33W-2x12-Tube-Guitar-Combo-Amp-487056-i1372076.gc


those are the two main ones im deciding on, but these next few still remain in the picture.

Fender Hot Rod Series Blues Junior 15w 1X12 tube combo
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Fender-Hot-Rod-Series-Blues-Junior-15W-1x12-Tube-Guitar-Combo-Amp-481861-i1392207.gc

Crate V50-112 50w 1X12 tube combo
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Crate-V-Series-V50-112-50W-1x12-Tube-Guitar-Combo-Amp-487054-i1322695.gc

Fender Hot rod, but you should really take a classic 30 into consideration

Peavey classic 30. Check it out man. Also maybe an epi blues custom?
Because tbh, the only one that is good for the blues and classic rock is the blues junior. The crates are a bit modern voiced and the VK, well, it sort of sucks for blues. And everything, except maybe thrash.

mcro (felix) i appreciate your feedback but please stick to the posted list.

Thx


edit: allthough if enough people request that Classic 30 i will use the gas to go down to guitar center and try it out for myself

He does. He was trying to help by explaining what he thought about the ones you listed and gave a suggestion of something else you could check out that would fit your needs better.

This must be a very good amp that i overlooked on my (supposedly) thorough pruning of amps at GC. Enough people have said it that now i am definitely heading down and checking it out.


Yeah virtually everybody has said something or other about the C30 so i am inclined to just go buy it without even playing it but seriously though i am actually leaning toward that now without even playing it.

If you want, you can check a clip i have of it on my profile. Crappy playing, but you get the idea.

I listened to the clips and i gotta say, sounds hella good. felix, you do need to record that again as when i turn my speakers way up it muddy's the sound and doesn't sound good (although i know the amp sounds good becuase i listened to esp1234's whole clip where he changed channels and stuff and even though he could use some practice (jk) it sounds good)

Im going to GC after i get off work tomorrow.
