Top UK Rated Valve Combo Guitar Amps

Top rated valve-tube amp
Vox AC-30 
Current eBay listings

MusicRadar just posted a top 22 list of most popular valve (tube) combo amps per a reader survey (obviously results are mostly UK). The top 10 include:
  1. VOX AC-30 (pictured)  
  2. Mesa Boogie Mark V Combo (eBay listings)
  3. Orange AD30TC
  4. Marshall '62 Bluesbreaker (RI)
  5. Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 18 Combo
  6. VOX AC-15
  7. Orange Rockerverb 15 Combo
  8. Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III
  9. Peavey 6505+ 112
  10. Laney IRT20-112
Although six of these top 10 are British produced amps, the Mesa Boogie Mark V Combo represents the US in an impressive #2 position. #5's HK combo is German made, and the Yankee's show up again in slots #8 & 9.

This survey wasn't exclusively their UK readers, but MusicRadar is based there, and most of their readership appears to be Euro.
