adding to or replacing Vox AC30

I've got this Vox AC30 (early '70's?) and I love it, but I don't play gigs
and I don't often want to play very loud, and for the amp to come into its
own it obviously need to be loud.
So I was thinking of maybe replacing it with something modest but nice
sounding. Ideally something that sounds similar but at a lower volume.
Perhaps spending 150 quid?
Now bear with me, because I know next to nothing about this, but somebody
was telling me today that the amps that have valve pre-amps and are
otherwise solid state (like modern Vox and Marshall small amps) are
basically a con and don't sound much like their all valve forebears.
Is that right?
Any advice on what might be a good amp to try?
And, I have a fond dream (possibly fantasy) that one day I'll put a little
band together for our own fun. Is any amp at around 150 pounds going to be
able to compete with a rock drummer hitting the drums hard? Or do I need
to hang on to the AC30 in case this actually happens?
Thanks for reading this, any thoughts appreciated.
All the best,
Angus Manwaring. (for e-mail remove ANTISPEM)
