what's your current rig and what music do you play? will you be gigging?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

that's quite a wide range of stuff. if you play the lighter and heavier stuff about equally, i'd maybe consider the peavey valveking 112. it's 50 watts, should easily be enough for band practice, all-valve. it's not amazing, it doesn't really do anything spectacularly, but does most styles decently.

if you're willing to compromise a bit on some of the tones, you could get a nicer amp for £400. for stuff along the lines of classic rock and blues, a laney vc30 or peavey classic 30 would be worth a look- if you ask me, both are nicer amps than the valveking, but the valveking will do the heavier stuff better.

if you veer more towards heavier stuff, i'd maybe consider a randall rg50tc. but it won't do crunch tones anywhere near as well.

a laney lc30 (£350) might actually be a good choice- it's pretty versatile, and more than likely a better amp than the valveking. I preferred the vc30 when i tried it (but i was after a more vintage tone so probably didn't give it a fair try), but the lc30 was a lot more modern-sounding, yet still had nice cleans.

a marshall dsl401 might be worth a try too, but it may be a little over budget, and i think it's in bad need of a speaker upgrade too, which is normally around £50.

+1

The DSL401 shouldn't be overbudget though. And don't get the TSL's. Plays like **** compared to the DSL.
