    Hey Guys,

    I'm looking for a lower budget, lower wattage amp with some ass kicking gain sounds. It needs a decent clean sound but really i'm looking for something that has some major balls. Like a pissed off small Marshall.

    My current amps:
    Morgan DAG15c
    Harmony H306c

    I was thinking of a Jet City JCA22H and a 1x12 cab which i could probably source for under $500.

    It's called a tweed champ. I'd go for one with a 1x10, and a negative feedback switch.
    NOS mullard 12AX7 for that grind and your down the road.

    Crank it with single coils or half with humbuckers - stick a mic in front of it and it's insane.

    This is LOW WATTAGE?!?!?

    :rotflmao

    If that's true, than I am ultra low wattage at 15 (AC15HW1X) and UBER ULTRA LOW WATTAGE at 1 watt (Lil Night Train)

    Dunno about some of the suggestions...Triple Rec? lol. LOW wattage guys. Headroom isn't a concern here.....

    I think i may head over to Tapestry Music and check out the Blackstar and Jet City stuff.
