    Are you interested in Tube amps manufactured in India?
    There are two that I know of: EC Man and Guru.

    Regarding the foreign tube amps avaialability in India, I guess you are on correct raod. You gotta get it imported via a dealer.

    ^^ What he means is an amp with a low wattage. Nothing too loud.

    The new amp is either Fender's Vintage Reissue of the 1965 Deluxe Reverb (20 watt combo) or their reissue of the 1965 Twin Reverb (85 watt combo).

    How much is the Fender costing you? I was thinking along the lines of 20W amp myself. Got a pretty small room to myself and a 50W amp will get me suspended from home.

    The Deluxe Reverb (20 watt) costs $800 brand new.
    The Twin Reverb (85 watt) costs $1100 brand new.

    If you intend to play just at home, even a 5 watt tube amp (Pretty loud) is enough. Check out the Epiphone Valve Junior.

    The 20 watt can be used for medium sized or club, restaurant gigs.

    Thanks a deal, man!! I'd forgotten that a tube would be loder than an SS. Could you give the price in rupees. Cause out here, we have to pay the custom duties too. Ho wmuch for a 5W?

    5 watt epiphone valve junior costs around $150 brand new or around Rs. 7000
    Your allowance at customs is Rs. 14k. This will be covered under it and you won't have to pay duties provided you have someone bringing one for you from america. I'm not sure about the formalities involved in having a retailer import one for you. You will have to contact a retailer about this.

    @Saptashaw: he means that you can bring in stuff worth upto 14k without having to pay customs on it

    Oh!! Thanks!! I thought 21K. Am very ignorant about the customs rules.

    Customs

    The Customs allowance has changed to 25,000 around 2 years back.
    Take advantage of it.

    You said you were looking for a Tube Amp dude. You are not going to get a decent amp for anywhere close to the price u are looking for.
    Might as well go for a HYbrid like the Marshall AVT.

    Yeah, I know that. Will have to start accumulating a lot of cash. Though a Hybrid's not a bad idea either. Thanks!!

    Do not buy a hybrid amp. I've owned a Marshall AVT half stack. A hybrid amp will not come close to emulating anything like the tone you would get from a nice warm tube amp. It's neither here nor there. Save lots of money and then go all tube.
