    Hi guys,

    I'm stuck between a couple of amps for home recording (currently have a Hughes and Kettner 15r solid state and wanting to upgrade to a 5w valve)

    These are the 3 im down to but open to other suggestions (£400 budget);

    Blackstar HT5r
    Vox ac4c1-12
    Marshall dsl5c

    I'm going to go in and try them out when I get the time but was just interested on everyones opinion on these amps and what people think would best suit me for practice and recording at home.

    The vox and the blackstar have 12" speakers which ive heard is a massive bonus but at the same time ive also heard that 10" speakers are better for home recording. My music varies between Pink Floyd, Oasis, Stone roses and bands of a similar sound, and I rarely play clean but I dont play really dirty either, like a kind of overdriven sound harshest things I tend to play is AC/DC.

    Keep changing my mind between the three and am a bit of a noob when it comes to this kind of thing haha, any help is appreciated!
