Tube power amps

does anyone make a single channel racked tube power amp??

why i ask is i want to run my Mark IV in stereo, and i want to do matching cabs for each left and right channel? so i'd like to run the satellite out into a tube power amp, and i figure finding one with single channel may cut down on the price, but i don't think that exists. anyone know about any that i don't?
All it needs to be is 6L6 based and good quality. It would nice for it to be 1 rack space, but thats probably not gonna happen with 6L6s. let me know if you think of anyhting. thanks

Re: Tube power amps

While I can't think of any single channel tube power amps, Carvin's TS100 (and perhaps T100) power amp can be bridged for mono operation. So it can run 50 watts per side in stereo and 100 watts in mono. It can be biased for either EL34's (stock) or 6L6's.

Re: Tube power amps

i want the tone for that channel of the tone to be pretty much the same, but i don't mind the little bit of tone variation.. i think it would add to the sound. just as long as i get the same kinda powerful tone as i get from the mark iv power section. i don't want the channel running though the mesa power to be thick and powerful and have the channel thats running through say a carvin power amp to be real thin sounding. I think i will consider the carvin power amps, though, if they dont' thin out my sound.
