  • Best low watt high gain amp? Engl-H&K-Others?

    Finally moved into apt. Don't really love playing the TOV or OR50 at quiet volumes. Looking for a low-watt head (maybe combo) for high gain with a usable clean. So far thinking gigmaster 15 or tubemeister 5 or 18. Don't really love those Black star amps, and don't want a mini rectifier. Any ideas/suggestions. May get a matching 110 or 112 cab-combos an option.
    Guitar: PRS CE-22 wirds, PRS Starla LTD, PRS 408 MT Gibson SG Classic, Classic Vibe 50s Strat. Trem-O-Verb head, Blonde Bassman into Recto Standard Slant 4x12, Vox AC4TVH and matching Cab.HCBF Warwick Owner's ClubWarwick Streamer Standard 4 string, or Ibanez SR405, SWR Grand Prix into SF800 power amp into SWR Twelve Stack.

    Jet City JCA22H is about the best bang for the buck out there.



    IMMEDIATELY throw away the junk Chinese tubes and put a pair of JJ EL84s and some Sovtek 12AX7's in it...and WOWZER!

            The HK Tubemeister is really cool. JCAs are good too for $ cash. Can't go wrong with either amp IMHO.

                A low wattage amp isnt gonna be all that super quiet if thats the idea, even 1 watt thru decent speakers is approaching 100db.

                    I really like my Egnater Tweaker 15 watt head... Though, it still can get pretty damn loud! I pulls off so many great sounds, I honestly can't believe how great this little guy sounds!

                            Or a good pedal with an Electro-Harmonix caliber 44.

                              I have a friend who builds amps and is pretty good at it. Makes a lot of Trainwreck clones. Just made a 0.5 watt Microplexi. He also makes this:
