Ultimate hard rock 40-60 watt 1x12 tube combo?????


I am looking for an all tube 1x12 combo, between 40-60 watts. The way I see it, there are the following choices:

Peavey XXX 1x12 60w
Marshall DSL401
Mesa F50

Any more suggestions to check out? I really am not a huge Fender fan, and I would like to keep it sub $1000, which these all fall under.

Carvin Nomad springs to mind... there must be a lot of amps in this range though?

Moreso than the Mesa F series, I'd recommend the Nomad series. I have a Nomad 45 1x12, and it absolutely rocks! 3 channels (2 modes per channel), solo boost, parallel FX loops, spring reverb, and all tube, of course.

i will HEARTILY second the Mesa Nomad..tons better tone than the F50 and the extra channel and more modes than you can shake a stick at as bduersch rightly said. The 45 also has the extreme mode! which is very beefy

oh yea me and bduersuch were refering to the Mesa Boogie Nomad amps..not the carvin that dave linked too.

that may well be a great amp too. Keep your options open and try 'em all

Damn that was fast. The Carvin Nomad looks cool, but I was thinking something that will release the fooking fuurrrrryyyy!!!

I'll check out the Mesa Nomad, I hadn't thought about that. Anyone know how much it retails for?

Can't remember what the retail is, but I paid ~$575 used for my Nomad 45. Worth every penny! Mine's got plenty of fury, and I'm not even using "extreme" mode!

I'd look at a Rivera combo... they're a bit less "metal" than the Mesas, but it sounds like thats what youre after. Something like an R-series, or Fandango/chubster if you want a punchier more "modern" tone

I got's to go to GC and try out the Nomad, and then see if I can find a good deal on a used one. Something tells me if the F50 is 1K new, the Nomad is probably quite a bit more.

the 45 watt one is probably just under that, actually. A 55 will probably set you back 1100-1200, though.

from what i remember...well in the UK anyway Nomads are the same price as the F series...which I could never understand cause compared to the nomads the F series sounded like mouldy ass....well a very nice mouldy ass but still a mouldy ass in comparission

Someone also mentioned to me to check out the Rivera Fandango 55 1x12. It's supposedly a fine sounding amp.

Traynor YCV40 + a good OD pedal...

Very nice lil' 40 watt all-tube 1x12 combo...

Goes from very clean to mid crunch and push the overdrive channel with a good pedal and you'll be into hard rock territory...

I used to play mine on top a Marshall 4x12 and it was rockin'!!!
