In connection with upcoming christmas I am searching for a new amp.
I don't know yet how much can I spend but obviously I'm not looking for as expensive amps as Mesa's. I thought that I'll try to find something like used JCM800 from 80s/90s but now after reading a few forums I'm afraid that it'll be much too loud for bedroom conditions. Then I looked at JTM45, it's 30w so it's good, but again I've got doubt that it's rather bluesy amp and it'll need good booster pedal. There is also VOX AC30CC2 but it's combo... and I am rather looking for stacks, cause it looks better (I am lame i know)
So now I'am asking You to help me choose good amp for me, cause i'll need some time before christmas to find it somewhere and play it before buying.
Well: It has to be valve construction. And I rather prefer british sounding amps... I am a really big fan of oldschool heavy metal like early Priest, early Maiden and Black Sabbath (also UFO, Diamond Head etc.) . But I'm also interested in possibility of getting for example classic Metallica tones, cause I've heard a guy playing on JCM800 with active pickups in LP and it was killer Battery/ MoP tone. I liked it. My second genre to play will be thrash. I don't really need to play blues on it, i've got also smaller ss combo...
