Tube amp under $1000

#1 Post by Ulowataio » Fri Feb 15, 2019 12:13 am

Hello,
I just started playing guitar, I picked up a great combo deal on a MIM Strat & Tele and I bought a used Mustang IV V2 amp, if I was looking to buy a good Tube amp new or used for $1000 or less what would be my best option?
Deluxe Reverb Reissue - Super Sonic 22 - Hot Rod Deluxe III - Blues Deluxe?
Or are there better options out there?
Was thinking about trading in the Mustang IV V2 https://waveadvice.com/budget-tube-amps/ and putting some money with it to get a good tube amp.
Thank you

Hey, if you're looking for a GREAT, ONBOARD, dirty channel, the Supersonic 22 is fantastic. You don't even need a drive pedal with that amp. I own it and also a Supersonic 60 because it's louder and has more headroom, for gigging with my band. Should be able to find a used '22 around $600?

It's really Fender's best "all-'round", "do-it-all" amp line, imo. And it's the best higher gain amp they've ever produced, imo.
