Any all tube amp with a nice clean channel is what you are looking for

But gilmour didn't use tubes, he used solid state stuff, like the big muff.

My favorite amps are HiWatt and Mesa Boogie. I think Hiwatt is what you're looking for.

thats the funniest thing ive ever heard u obviiously dont know alot about his rig then

dave uses 3 hiwatt custom 100 heads into 3 wem 4x12 cabs wqith fane cresento speakers all his heads have at least 4 tubes each in them

note : dave has never ever used an amp without tubes in

even his old fender twin reverb deluxe used on the madcap laugh syd concert had tubes in

the big muff is a pedal not an amp and all pedals are true bypass not solid state. Even back in the ummuguma days his albeitier fuzz face was true bypass aswell.

As for hiwatt and mesa boogie if you cant afford them there are a few cheap vox's and fender twins going really cheap that might be more in your price range

I stand corrected. :D I'm not a big fan of tubes :P. Believe it or not I actually like digital stuff more.

Actually I fully respect and like to promote digital modelling stuff. I've managed to achieve pretty good gilmour tones as well, but I feel digital technology has reached a good enough level to be able to model any solid state or tube amp.

That's just me though. I used to have a GFX-8 before my Toneworks. Any single other processor or amp just didn't satisfy me, while my gfx with it's crappy amp sim and digital distortion simply blowed me away every time.

The Vox Toneworks is better tho (and it has a valve in it :P).

it can sound maybe as good as but the punchyness... the volume, the way the amp reacts to your playing and your guitar...pedals can never be beaten
