200 Watt Tube Amp For Guitar

Sun Jun 21, 2015 11:17 pm

I really want a Science Mother, but I can't justify that $2100 price tag. So I'm on the hunt for a 200 watter that's not gonna kill my wallet. Possible? Suggestions?

Relevant.

I'd like an old sound city or something that was designed for guitar or bass on the cheap.

Are you using it for guitar or bass?

Bass, but I occasionally run it through a 215 with guitar speakers.

Peavey VB2 would be a good choice, slam it with pedals on the clean channel. Also, aforementioned Sound City's, Traynor YBA200? Sunn 2000s if you can find one for cheap.

For non-vintage amps, bet the 2nd version of the 350 watt tube, Koch-made, Eden World Tour would be sick on guitar. You can find them for under 1k.

Friend of a friend has a 225 watt Trace Elliot that sounds sick for live metal bass. Don't know the model though. Crate made a 225 watt tube amp. Marshall made a huge tube bass head a couple years ago.

Plenty of tube pre- + huge solid state power section bass amps that would work awesome too. Sunn, Fender, Mesa-Boogie, & Orange would top my list of those.

Crate Blue Voodoo 300, obv.

You could try to track down a Peavey Classic 400. Which seems to be rare as all hell to find.
