What are some 3-6 watt tube amps with a build in attenuator?
Max 800 $
Why so low power if it's going to have an attenuator anyway?
I'll just be using it for jamming with another guitarist.
We play at low volume while praticing, and crank the volume when jamming, and im trying to have the same fat, compressed, tube sound in both situations
I don't know of anything that small with an attenuator built in. If you're going to be using an attenuator anyways, why not just get a bigger amp? Or something with a good master volume?
None that I know, not with that low wattage.
Tone Tron Amps will build you exactly what you want for that price. www.tonetronamps.com
Jeff Falla is the guys name. I have 2 of his amps. Awesome guy. Awesome custom builder.
Wrote a book "How to mod your fender amp" and his amps have been reviewed by Guitar Player and Vintage Guitar.
I have a single ended class A 15 watt with a master. I cant get a nice blues tone a low volume no matter what i do. Its only the preamp tubes at work when i lower the volume.
So i need power tubes cooking at low volume
Blackstar HT5 Mkii. Sounds ace...

Demo'd by the awesome Tom Quayle:
The only one i have found is the Palmer Fab 5. Sounds good.
Just wanted to see if there are other options
The Dr, Z Mini-Z which you can find as a head for around $500 and a combo around $700.
Ok, so why not just buy an attenuator to use with the amp you have? That seems like a lot better solution than trying to find some tiny amp with an attenuator built in, imho.
Did I mention Z's are handwired and made in the USA? No circuit boards from overseas.
Cause i want another amp
Fryette gp/di is loud enough for your purposes and does a lot more.

Tone King Gremlin.
It seems to be a waste for an amp of so few watts to need an attenuator at all.
Maybe you don't understand how lout a 5 watt amp can be at home.
