    So i'm in the market for a new amp. Not a particularly high wattage, and don't really need death metal amounts of gain, i just want a nice versatile amp.
    so far, i've bee looking at the laney lionheart 20watt combo and the H&K edition tube 20th anniversary. I haven't had time(/can't find anywhere near me that sells them) to try any of them yet, so just wandered about general opinions of them.

    Also, whats the difference between the H&K edition 20th, and 25th? apart from the 25th appears to be cheaper?

            Whats the reliability like? i'm a bit dubious buying used as i bought a used tsl, and it has been nothing but a pain in the arse. i swear its spent more time getting repaired than it has being played. Although i do gather this is a tsl problem, not necessarily a bad owner

              Well it is a gamble buying anything used but maybe you can find one in your local area

                  How about the Spider Valve?
                  Maybe a Cornford Roadhouse?
                  A Mesa Rectoverb 1x12" or an F-50?

                    I don't know how to feel about HK.

                    I love my Access Preamp, but their support is non-existent, and I HATED the Warp X.

                      If there are any dealers near you, try a Traynor amp. Like a YCV40. Very solid build, usable EQ and are extremely pedal friendly.
                      It doesn't get any better than this
