    a dude on craigslist in my area has a johnson laredo 25 watt amp tube amp for really cheap. looked at the specs. looks almost exactly like what i'm looking for. i've been really wanting a low-wattage el-84 amp for a while. heard anything about this brand/ this amp? what amp sounds is it comparable to? any popular mods (besides speaker and tubes that seem to be the common complaint) that you might suggest?

    is it worth pulling the trigger?

    Depends on what you can get it for, I suppose.

    I bought one new online in '06 ($275) & it's a decent platform for pedals. Don't care for the amp's od/dist, but with features like a blendable loop & ext. cab capabilty it makes for a decent grab 'n go.

    Far as mods go, I'd like to strip out/change what appears to be a ss clipping stage in the preamp (so someone who knows more about schematics has told me).

    I've swapped out the ass-tastic stock speaker for an emi ragin' cajun which made a noticable difference.
