  • I would like to buy one of them mini tube heads. Which are good?

    I don't want to spend much. I want something that is fun playing through with lots of gain but with a good tone. Any recommendations? I ain't going to Guitar Center to try them out. I'll order online. I like high gain but with nice tone.

                    How small and how much are you looking to spend?



                    I thoroughly enjoyed my blackstar HT5 when I had it. It's not exactly my favorite tone or anything, but it sounded plenty good for a small amp.



                    Egnater tweakers are fun as well, but if you're looking for high gain as in modern metal territory, I don't think it's the best option. But, for more classic rockish type stuff, it's nice.



                    I played a mini recto once in a music store and thought it was pretty killer, but it's about a grand new.

                            The Micro Terror is tempting as hell. I also like that little Kustom one. From the online vids I think the Greta would be fun. VHT6 looks like what I would typically prefer, but I havn't tried it.

                            The main reason I havn't bought a small tube head is I dont have a cab. But since Im getting my Bassman overhauled thats about to change.

                            I can see the real possibility of a Tiny Terror(or the head cabinet version with the effects loop) in my future. I grown to really appreciate the sounds an Orange puts out, not quite like anything else IMO.

                              The Micro Terror is tempting as hell. I also like that little Kustom one. From the online vids I think the Greta would be fun. VHT6 looks like what I would typically prefer, but I havn't tried it.

                              The main reason I havn't bought a small tube head is I dont have a cab. But since Im getting my Bassman overhauled thats about to change.

                              I can see the real possibility of a Tiny Terror(or the head cabinet version with the effects loop) in my future. I grown to really appreciate the sounds an Orange puts out, not quite like anything else IMO.
