    When I think Marshall tone, I think of EL34's and Celestion speakers. As far as cheap, low wattage amps that have that, I'm at a loss.

    What exactly is low wattage to you?

        Id say the Laney GH series somewhat get you in that direction. I love mine. Not sure if thats in your price range though.

            Carvin X-100's are supposed to be close. I heard a clip and it sounded pretty good. Make sure it has el34's and you run it through a celestion

              Get a Vox Valvetronix 120w head and run it into a cab loaded with V30's or similar speakers.

                Get a decent single channel 30 watt amp with el34 tubes. Also get a plexitone pedal.

                  Ouch - I am a huge fan of 800s. I don't know how to do it on a budget.

                  I will say I like Traynor YBA-1's, trhey are cheap and easy to mod.

                    A Sovtek amp would likely be the cheapest way to a "800 like" sound.

                    An 80's 4203 or 3203 Artist is always an option.

                    Like Imp said, you will always be wanting a Marshall, so just save and get the Marshall. You will wish you did. If you were looking for something a "little different" than a Marshall, that would be a different story.

                    Prices shure are rising aren't they.

                    ((tube max dissipation wattage / amp plate voltage) x % of max dissipation wattage) x 1000 = bias current in mA
