Re: Low wattage tube amp recomendations.

Orange Tiny Terror is very good IMO - very versatile and sounds great at low volumes.

Check out Jim Frenzel and the FM. www.frenzeltubeamps.com

Very good guy to deal with, great amp, good pricing.

Re: Low wattage tube amp recomendations.

Im looking into an F30 now, even though I am the Anti-Mesa.
My Orange is still awesome, but I dont want to carry a head and separate cab so Im looking for a fairly low powered combo again. Although I would go up to 50 watts. The tiny Terror is on my hit list, but that wouldnt get me around having to lug a cab with me.

Re: Low wattage tube amp recomendations.

I've actually decided to go visit some of the used stores, I hear we have one here that is amazing, keeps things reasonbly priced and very willing to negotiate.

My friend went there for a bass they were asking $600 for. He offered them $500 and they accepted, then came down by themselves to $450 because they didnt have the case, then down to $420 because they didnt feel like figuring out tax. He's been trying to get me to check the place out for years, so Im finally going to go there.

Absolutely--I have a modded VJ and it burns. Also, you may want to look at the new Hughes & Kettner Statesman line--there's a 20W and a 40W model and they both sound killer.

I got to check out the Statesman series at the London Guitar Show - very cool amps. Much 'more amp' than the Tiny Terror, but I would still go with the Orange - it's simple, small, portable, and sounds great.

I'm pretty intrigued by the little Valve Junior Jim - care to share your views on the amp and mods since this first post you did on this thread?

Cheers

Re: Low wattage tube amp recomendations.

what about a VOX AC15CC1 , you can put a 16 ohm Jensen P10Q alnico in there instead of the wharfedale and it will be a world beater, they're not too expensive either.

Re: Low wattage tube amp recomendations.

The only thing I think that would stop me from getting a Tiny Terror is the fact it doesn't have an effects loop. They sound great though.

I was fortunate enough the other day to play this little monster at my music store. It was the 2 stripe version and it sounded great. I would be tempted to buy this, but sadly here in Oz they don't have the heads, which is a real shame, plus the price of AU$250 is steep.
