Don't get a Classic 30. They're decent, but not as good as the Fender Deluxe Reverb. Great cleans, should be loud enough for a bar area. I say get a Keeley Modded Tubescreamer or a TS808 (don't get the TS9, the TS808 has a bit more gain and is more transparent).

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

ts-9------better for more bluesy style
ts-808---better for rock style



Are you kidding?? The TS808 is AMAZING for blues.

The ts808 in my opinion is better than the ts9 for rock and blues. You can get killer blues tones out of it.
#15
Also look for a Peavey Delta Blues. the 15" speaker is really something for lowend. besides the tubescreamer, you may also want to try barber and fulltone od's to give yourself a range of the OD your looking for.

Don't need to go used with your budget, you can get a new Traynor

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Traynor-Custom-Valve-50BLUE-YCV50BLUE-50W-All-Tube-1x12-Combo-Amp-with-Celestion-Speaker?sku=489075

Or the YCV40 if you want a punchier upper midrange...basically the 50 is a bit more Marshally, the 40 a bit more Fendery.

No need for an OD pedal either

Yeah, if you've got the money for a better OD do it. Delta Blues is a good idea and the Laney's have nice cleans (I hear) but may be more British voiced.

What is Craigslist showing?




umm my craigslist sucks for my area but i havent checked yet im really liking the idea of a fender DR and a ts808 but those traynors looked nice with the v30's in the back ive never herd a laney or a delta blues tell me about them?

They do awesome blues sounds, and much more besides. The 50 will do anything up to old school heavy metal tones like Iron Maiden, the 40 is a bit brighter and punchier and sounds more like fender-type amp.

There's plenty of Traynor threads around at the mo, just have a read through them,

Well those are too completely out of touch amps! if it were like a C30 to an HRD I'd argue but yeah a Deluxe Reverb can indeed pown a C30...

I would reccomend a used DR and a Maxon-OD808

I think you meant those are two completely different amps not 'out of touch amps'.

Eitherway, you're right.

Is a Deluxe Reverb too much of an amp for a beginner who's been playing 3 months? I guess not if you have the money and don't want to deal with trading amps later. It would definitely hold it's value i would think.
