  • I'd like to compile a list of low-watt tube amps.

    Looking basically at stuff under 15 watts (or that are adjustable to that range like the Egnater Rebel). I'm most interested in something that can handle classic rock and blues at lower volumes.

    Any suggestions are welcome (especially if they're reasonably priced).

      I'm just really craving a tube amp right now. The only amp I have is my Tech 21 Trademark 60. I really like the thing, but . . . well I don't know, I like it but I don't LOVE it. I'd gladly trade it in for something tubey .

        Blackheart Little giant. 5watts but it's pretty loud when you dial in some gain. less than $200.

          I've been considering that, but I'd really like to have an effects loop. Not a necessity, but I'd like it

                So far that's my first choice, I'm just wondering if I can find something for less cash .

                  The discontinued Peavey Classic 20 is pretty sweet. 15 watts, master volume. They breakup immediately. You can occasionally find them on ebay for 2-300$.

                    Zinky Blue Velvet 25w.Great amp.
                    With the master vol you can get great tones at TV vol,or crank it and piss off the neighbors.

                    The Carvin V16 is a nice amp also.
                    There's nothing to see here.Move along.

                      Are you just looking for current production amps or would the list include older vintage amps?

                              Older is fine as well, so long as it's readily available on the used market.

                              I just want something I can actually get my hands on that isn't going to rape my wallet.
