You know when you've got your Mark V and you want to pair it up with some biting, acidic British grindyness? I've about narrowed it down to these options: JCM 800 2203 - Original and best, but obviously comes with the attendant pitfalls of looking for a 30+ year old amp. JCM 900 sl-x or JCM2000 DSL - Might do the job but not quite the mystical (possibly imaginary) mojo of the 2203, can be had for cheap. JVM410 - Maybe more bells and whistles than I need. Splawn Quick Rod / Friedman Runt - Feels exceptionally silly paying the amount necessary for an imported US amp to get a British tone, but these are obviously great amps. Can't quite conceive of forgiving Friedman for calling a £3000 amp "Brown Eye". Budda Superdrive 80 - Bit of an outside choice because it's 6L6 powered rather than EL34, but seems to do the thing. Cornford MK50 - Not so easy to track down, some say amazing amps, some say likely to set on fire (obviously those aren't mutually exclusive). Quite helpful just writing that all out, actually. Finding it a touch frustrating that the best current manufacturers of this sort of thing all seem to be in the US. Anyone got any ideas that I've missed out/reasons to scratch something from my list? Any UK based manufacturers I haven't thought of? There's always the cheap and cheerful option of a Valvestate 8100, they seem to be going so cheap that someone might just give me one if I wait around long enough.
