Ok so I currently own a Marshall MG250DFX. As with most of the MG series, it sounds like ****. I play a Tokai Les Paul copy, it sounds okay live through the MG when the amp is turned up pretty loud but this amp, even with a Gibson Les Paul Studio through it sounds balls when it's recorded.

I'm looking at replacing the MG with a Marshall valve combo (something that will sound good in the studio and is loud enough to play with live) and I'm looking to spend around £500, £600 at the most.

I was thinking maybe the DSL 401 or a second hand Vintage Modern combo?

Any ideas?

What sort of styles do you play? Me thinks an Orange Rock 30 is right up your street if it's classic rock.

Yeah, mainly GNR, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Led Zep etc.
But I'm still looking for versatility - something my MG lacks...

i think you should try to get a used JCM800 combo - they go for around £400 on ebay.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

+1 to the used JCM combo. It is perfect for you. But if you don't want to go used, I'd reccommend an Orange Rocker 30. They'll both do you wonders.
