Hi, I'm looking for a high gain tube from the 500-600 dollar range, dosen't matter whether its combo or head/cab, preferably higher than 5 watts watts. Any suggestions?
5150, b52 at 100
As already stated, B-52 or used 5150 will definitely be your best choices but you could also look at the Marshall 3203 Artist. It's a personal favorite for under 500. You will have to buy used but it's pretty sweet cause it's got a tube power amp section, which is the one where it really counts, plus a ss preamp so you can get more gain than most pure tube amps at the price. Plus it's 30w so it should be fine for any of your needs.
