amp for practice and gigs

Hi,

i know it's probably a question that is often asked here, so i'll try to be more specific.

I want to buy a new amplifier for practicing and possibly also for gigging (smaller gigs). I'd prefer a marshall. Now my questions is how much power i'd need. Is 40W enough or should i go for at least for 60W or more?

I play rock (not metal), so i don't just need distortion, but also a nice clean sound. But than again, i like to crank it up a little too sometimes! :)
Oh yeah i forgot to mention: of course i prefer a tube amp! ;)

What would YOU buy?
Thanks for any advice!

Csaba

I have been singing the praises and virtues of the Tech21 Trademark 60 for years. It is a versitile 60 watt amp that sounds great plays great and has never faled me for any style of music that I need to cover.

Hi,

Thanks, it sounds nice. I am considering chosing "by ear" in a store... without being biased by my guitar heros :). The only back side of this way is that it can get really expensive. :D
Well, we'll see...

I love the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. Nice clean sound and a good rock overdrive. In either the 1x12 or the 2x12 configuration.
