I'm looking for a small tube amp for home use, say 5-10 watts, that turns into a real jerk when cranked up but still cleans up really well with the guitar volume. The amps that do this the best are higher powered NMV, no? I like all flavors of clean and dirt...fender, marshall, vox all sound great to me. The key is the ability to clean up very well. Seems like the tweed deluxe is the gold standard for this type of thing, but I tried one out and damn it was loud opened up. So...suggestions? The Gries 5 and Star Nova look nice. What else?
