    ...that meets these criteria?

    - around 40 watts w/ pretty good clean headroom
    - 1 x 12
    - not too heavy (yeah it's somewhat subjective)
    - single channel
    - reverb
    - an external speaker jack
    - not too expensive (subjective as well)


    Thanks,
    Dennis

    Sounds like a Dr. Z Maz 38 Sr. to me. They're around 1800, not sure if that's cheap in your book.

    Groove Tubes Soul-O 45. You can find them used $500-700 for a $1700 amp.

    That's the first thing that popped into my head. The OP's signature has some nice gear in it ... so maybe the money's good ...

    Thanks. The Dr. Z is probably more than I want to spend, but the Soul-O 45 sounds interesting.

    The Reverend Hellhound 40/60 doesn't have an external speaker jack but it has everything else you're looking for. You can usually pick then up used on eBay for $500 - $600.

    Allen Old Flame, Encore, or Accomplice (w/40 watt transformer upgrade). Great amps, reasonably priced.

    i've been really curious about these too. hand-made, simple, good rep, not too expensive.

    I was going to suggest a DR, but you have one. The DR doesn't cut it?

    The Reverend Hellhound definitely has an extension speaker output. 3 to be exact. 4ohm, 8ohm, and 16ohm. Take your pick.
