So I have a toneport. After playing through all of the models, i found out my favorite is the ac-30. So I was wondering what is the best all tube amp for under say $300 maybe $400 that would get me a similar tone.

At guitar center my favourite amps that I tried out were the crate palomino or blues jr, with the crate coming alittle bit out on top.

oh and I play mostly jazz and blues. looking for a really good just breaking up blues sound. and as long as the clean channel is cleanand not too thin, im usually fine with it.

Actually most British brands are a lot cheaper on your side of the pond, like Laney, Ashdown, Orange, Marshall, Vox and so on. So stop COMPLAINING!

Plus you Vintage guitars which IMO are AWESOME!

Although it sounds nothing like it.


A Crate V33 will get it done for cheap.

I had a Gibson Ga-30RVS, that had a voxy tone to it, they are more expensive but cheaper than a Vox. You could find the Ga-15rvs for probally about $400-500, if you could live with less power.
