100% Vintange sound no exceptions. I would prefer 80 watts, but i can go for 50 watts, its not for stadiums, just some small shows at school. But i would prefer more wattage cause i want this amp to last. And if a half stack would be available for my price range it would be good, i can go over my budget.Mr. David Severson said:I guess it really depends on what style of music you play and how big the venue is. Some amps you need to turn up in order to get them into the "grease zone" obviously the lower wattage amp wins. Do you need a vintage sound or do you need a modern sound? Myself I prefer a vintage sound, I used Jeff Flowerday's 18 watt Marshall on one of my gigs and it fit the bill perfectly. I could get a great chimey clean with a bit of give or grimmey with the openning of my volume pot and Klon + Barber Direct SS..

It doesnt HAVE to be 80+ watts. But im looking for a combo amp. The traynor make is very good i hear, but i dont feel like purchasing a cabinet for the head. And if a new amp has a vintage style sound thats good.:banana:bolero said:you could do some reading on the plexipalace forums, lots of marshall info there
the DSL series aren't bad sounding & can get a vintagy sound
but for that money you could get a good old traynor YBA1 head, that would be my choice. you won't find a vintage marshall for less than $1k these days
why do you think you need a 80-100w amp? a 20-30w amp will handle any situation, except maybe an outdoor gig in a cow pasture, with no PA None
can you please name some newer ones in that range? and no, i dont want to link to anything all i need is a combo amp. I have a small crappy 15W fender one now. I wanna move up the wattage to Marshall 40W+ Combodwagar said:I agree with Bolero, look in the 30W range, or maybe an 18 watter. Those things kick ass.
I have a JCM800 50 watt combo, I've never ever been in a venue I could pin it. Remember you want to get that amp cranked up for tone.
You want a Marshall and your link is to a Crate?
You won't find a vintage Marshall in your price range, but a lot of the newer ones can deliver a reasonable facsimile of the tone.
There you go, look for that one. Or go with a AVT, they sound pretty good. I have one in my room (avt50hx with jcm 800 lead 1960 cab) and I love it to death. Not as much as the 800 itself, but it's still damn good for the price.SinCron said:Some people end up selling their DSL's for 650. Awesome amps from what I've heard.
