I don’t know if you’re set on a Mashall or not, but I highly recomend an old Fender Deluxe Reverb if you can find one. They’re often priced at around what you’re willing to spend.
They’re pretty light compared to other amps. Not as loud, but loud enough for a small club. And they sound soooo sweet! [img]images/smiles/converted/cool.gif[/img]
I have one from ’68. and I’m never gonna give it up. [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
I wouldn’t buy one made any later than ’69 though, Fender started making some changes. They’re louder, but don’t sound as good… [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
