Tube amp suggestions

I am looking for a Tube amp at about 30 watts from $300-$500 new or used (not to buy now) just wanted some recommendations on which one to get.

Crate V series. Don't laugh, these are awesome EL84 powered amps. Give one a try!

I have a V series v1512, guitar center version, blonde v16 actually.
I love it. good overdrive sound built in. with good distortion pedals it can do anything. I just bought a big muff pi to go with it. it sounds awesome. pure violin tone!

Re: Tube amp suggestions

The AD30VT isn't tube powered, but it has a circuit in it that simulates tube sound. I've personally played one, and they're awsome! I am in a few weeks, getting one for myself! Listen how it sounds below with these clips.

Re: Tube amp suggestions

Chck out the diagrams on the Vox website towards the bottom, this should answer most of your questions.

I've heard good things about the Peavey Valve King. 1x12 50 watts dual channel ALL TUBE for 349.99.

The tone is a bit different. The lead has a Vai vibe to it though.
