k so my amp died the other day. I had a Marshall MG100dfx (yeh i know). i hated it anyway, but it leave's me with no amp.

I've been looking around and i dont have a clue what to get..?
i think i definately want a tube amp,
I really like the sound of Mesa Boogies but i just cant afford it.
Ive got a budget of like £200 - £600 depending on how long i save for, i could save for longer if there was something thats rly worth it though.

i have an Ibanez S470, a vox v847 wah and a digitech screaming blues pedal.
I play alot of different stuff, from like clean stuff (counting crows etc.),
to blues, i play alot of eric clapton etc.
and also quite alot of rock (or whatever you want to call it) e.g.foo fighters, bayside, rise against etc..
I don't really play any metal but i do use quite alot of gain sometimes.

im going to be using it for home practice, band practice with a drummer etc. and gigs.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

alright than, if you want sound, prolly a used mesa boogie combo. if you just want size, go for one of those cheap starter stacks that various manufacturers....manufact.

For classic rock, I'd stay away from anything more than 50 watts, and if it's me I'd stick to 30 watts, so you can get power tube distortion without blowing your ear drums. Clapton has used many a Marshall in his career, so they're worth a look. In the UK laney's and oranges have a great following, but they are WAY over priced over here.
apparently UG's only type O-
