Anyone know of a really good clone amp or something that is not "brand name" but that is better then the really deal for half the cost?
I recently bought an Edwards Les Paul and it is simply stunning, if not equal or slightly better then my buddies real les paul. and it was half the cost. this got me wondering if there is such a find similar to this only for amps. Just some names of companies and where to get them ( the Edwards came from Japan online for example).


hope this makes sense...

Well, traynors sound like marshalls and are much less than new marshalls. There are many good, cheap amps, they aren't necessarily knock offs though.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

What kind of brands are we talking about?

Bugera would fall into that catagory.

RedBear

I guess "knock off" is a bad term but didnt know how to explain it. the Edwards I got is JP custom (Jimmy Page les paul). I post some pics when I get a second. Anyways it is simple great. Thanks for the names so far (treynor). Maybe my new guitar and this would be a match made in Zeppelin heaven....

Sovtek Mig amps are pretty much clones of older Marshalls and are much much cheaper.

I thought they were Bassman clones (they use 5881's...)

Sovteks MIG amps are great.

Splawns are knockoffs of marshalls in many ways

laney AOR and Protube series are much like Gained up plexis ans JCM800s.

Ceriatone makes clones of vintage Marshalls. So does Metropoulos.

Splawns are hot-rodded Marshalls, essentially - B-52s have been called "the poor man's Mesa", Bugera are Peavey knockoffs... I'm sure there are many more.

All I know is that the Mig 60 is pretty much dead on a JCM800.

I'd love to have a nice Mig. Or a Redbear. Or a Sunn Model T.

My next amp I buy will either be a 2 Channel Dual Recto or an original Model T

I believe Tesla stole it from a person not mentioned in history, it probably went down as such:

Tesla: I really love this idea, it's fantastic. Say, you wouldn't mind stepping over here?
Person: Next to this coil looking thing?
Tesla: Yes, now just hold still...
