Hello GG&A.
I have some money now and can afford to buy a new amp. I have searched etc and have done most of the legwork so don't worry.

I have been playing coming up on 2 years. I play blues, blues-rock, classic rock, hard rock and thrash, 80's (hair) metal, and some neo-classical metal. My favourite bands/artists are Led Zep, Van Halen, Hendrix, Sabbath, Iron maiden, Rush, Judas Priest, Satch, and anything with Paul Gilbert.

I have a Digitech RP50 multieffects pedal, and my guitar is a hollow body Johnson (which i intend to upgrade at the end of the year)

The amp is mostly for practice and small jams, I mostly focused on small tube combos cause that's what I'm looking for

My budget really is about $700AUD max. I have included the price of some amps out of my budget just to show you that I already looked into them.

I live in (west) Australia and everything here is rather expensive as far as guitar goes. My list of possible amp is as follows:
New
Laney VC15 couldn't find new
VC30 $1100
Laney All Valve LC15R $799
Fender Super Champ XD $639
Epiphone Valve JR $299.00
Epiphone Valve Standard Combo $599
Epiphone Valve Special Combo $599
Randall RG50TC $1,295
Peavey Classic 30 $999
Vox AD50-XL 50W 2x12 Valvetronix Combo $749

Used
(many too big for practice use but oh well)
AMP Laney TF320, tube fusion, (2) 12 combo, excel cond $350 ono
Marshall Amp Valvestate 100. Good condition $400 ono
AMP Peavey Special 130, made in USA $400.
AMP Crate, VGTX100, 100W valve combo, twin channel $650.
AMP guitar, Peavey Triumph, 1 x 12 combo, all valve, 60W $500.
AMP guitar, Laney, 100W, 3 channel, gd cond $250 firm.
AMP Marshall, GCM 100W, combo, valve state $650 ono.
amp Marshall JCM900, 50W high gain, dual reverb, 12" spkr $750.
Fender Pro 185 twin spkr, twin channel combo, very loud $550 firm.

That's about it, i couldn't find any B-52 or Orange amps, and all Blackhearts & Traynors were very expensive. Thanks plz

The amp that stood out the most to me on that list is the JCM900. Great amp and seems reasonable compared to the rest of the prices you listed.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
