If you want to stay small, but the Deluxe isn't quite right, check out the Brown Princeton (6G2). Very compact and I believe the circuit is very similar to the tweed 5F11.I also prefer the tweed Pro to the Deluxe (even if it is a stretch to think of the Pro as a "small" amp)
I played a Victoria Victorilux recently (48 watt Black face in a tweed cab) . That amp was the best Fender style amp I have ever played on. It is what a really good Fender should sound like and then some ! I like it way better than the Fender 57 twin or my friend's Black faced pro reverb. Just all around killer sound, tone and dynamics. I am also looking to try the Golden Melody . For a Fender vibe, I have not played anything better !Can you turn up at home? That would determine whether I went for, eg, a 5E3 or 5F4 in a tweed type. I don't see the point of going up the next step to the Bassman or 50w Twin if you're not playing with a rhythm section regularly.
In a bf circuit, it's hard to beat a Vibrolux or Pro Reverb unless you really need portability, in which case, Deluxe Reverb would be my choice.
With all that said, have you tried the Victoria Silver Sonic/Golden Melody circuits? More or less the same preamp, low/high powered respectively. Amazing sounds. If I were in the market at that price point, that's definitely where I'd start.
