Need Small Tube Amp For Home/Studio use
So hey guys, I am quite new to this forum, I wish I am not violating any rules...
So I am using a Marshall AVT20, a good practice amp, but so muddy and lacks clarity. I want a tube amp, which is capable of smaller gigs, studio and home use. I love high gain british style amps, (but I need cleans so orange dark terror or similar amps wouldn't be that good). I certainly need 2 foot switchable channels, with seperate volume knobs, and if possible, seperate gain knobs (I use an Ibaez RG1570 with Evolution pickups, so for some real clean, I gotta use low gain).
I am currently with a low budget, after that vacation... I started saving so I can have my amp early 2013. But I want to search the right amp before i start looking for amps.
Combo, head + cab doesn't matter, I want it to be tube, have the genuine tube sound, at least for clean channel. I am using Morley Bad Horsie 2 + ADD+ Miniamp ( a Sansamp GT-2 Clone) for my distortion sounds.
As for budget, let me tell you some amps I can afford, because prices here may be different from around world: Marshall MHZ 15 + cab or MHZ40c (they have an overal bad reputation mostly because of digital effects ), Marshall MA50C ( nice, cheap, genuine tube amp, but way too loud and doesn't have power dumping), Blackstart HTstudio20, HTClub 40 ( Although they are told to be not all tube, I head they have good sounds at low volumes).
These are most popular amps for that price, within my needings. I am open to Ideas and no I am not one of the guys who look for big brand names, I just want a small, 1x12 prefered, tube amp for studio&home use, and has high gain british. I can either use amp distortion or my own pedal.
I'd also like to buy a good od too, for several boosting operations.
Last thing I forgot to mention, I play rock, hard rock and metal, with quite some distortion, I generally play leads, but clean sound is also needed.
What would you recommend?
Thank you for all replies in advance.
