Totally disagree about Blackstar amps sounding thin and bright I have a Series one 45 2x12 combo that sounds amazing. haven't tried any of the others though

I just picked up a Blackstar Artisan 15 for ?450.

It's handwired, switchable from 5-15 watts and is the best amp I've ever had.

Never buy new :D

Have you thought about the Vox AC4tv combo or AC4TVH / V112TV Head & Cab. I have the seperates and love the tone. It also offers 3 output settings, 4w, 1w, and 1/4w. I haven't heard a bad word about theses amps. The chap at Rat Amps rates it highly too:

Wow! Just listened to some clips of the Minimat 2 on YT. There's a guy with a Tokai P90 that sounds absolutely incredible, nice speaker comparison at 2:50 too!
