    I picked up a Traynor Classic Valve 20 YCV20-WR a loud 15 watt w Celestion Greenback used for $350 and new they are close to $600 and was very surprised how good this little amp sounds (check specs on Traynor site-Canadian amp). This amps sounds very boutique for a 15 watter and very portable with channel switching and touch sensitive response. It sounds very Fendery clean and has a nice OD channel. It blows away a Blues Jr. that sounds boxey and no channel switching which I also have higher power Marshall combo, Fender HR Dlx and a couple Mesa's.

    Check out the Dr. Z Maz 18 - it's a little heavier than a Deluxe Reverb.

    I believe Allen has an amp that for a while he was actually putting in a Blues Jr like chassis. You may want to start there.
