what would be a good combination of Amp/Pedal(s) to get a good SRV sound (think Testify) at a budget of 500 dollars? my guitar is a Fender Stratocaster so that helps..

thanks

I heard there is uranium gas in the tubes. So you could easily make a little nuclear blast. If i were you, i wouldn't want to start the World War III.

is buying used an option?

TS808 into a Blues JR is a pretty budget wise setup.

Whats the difference between the Blues Junior and the NOS Blues Junior? Is it worth paying another 70 dollars?

Not sure how much a Fendr Hot Rod is, but maybe that and a TS808 if you're gunna be playing shows, otherwise the Blues JR is the way to go.

ok the hot rod series and the blues series, the amp od is not so great, the blues driver is pretty good, i can get a pretty good srv tone at least good enough for me, but stevie did use a tubescreamer so keep that in mind, if you have a little electronics knowledge you can get a kit to build your own on build your own clone, much more versatile and cheaper.

now way ill be able to build one on my own (im 13) but thanks for the input...gonna settle for the Tubescreamer and probably the Blues Junior..

Just one mre question: I know its very cheap, and its the Blues Jr smaller brother and it has only one volume control, but what do you think about the Fender Champion 600? heard good reviews about it, only recomending to swap the tubes..

I thought that the Champion sounded a bit too "boxy" for me. It'd be better if you tried out some American-voiced tube amps in your budget at your local music stores.

/\ with BYOC so long as you have a soldering iron, and can follow directions you're pretty much good to go. And SRV used a Tubescreamer to boost the gain on his fender and dumbles, so the Tubescreamer is basically a neccessity.
