    I want something that I don't think exists.:crazyguy

    I want the Vox sound.
    I want the headroom of 30 watts, too.
    But not the weight. I want to be able to carry the amp with one hand.

    I want it to be under 2K

    Reliable

    Handwired
    Really has that Vox chime

    Ideas?

    A Vox AC30 with a roadie. You'd be surprised how light they are.

    Ceriatone Matchless clone. I have one and the EF86 channel is great. It's heavy but I can carry it with one hand no problem.

    Why not see about getting a cab built for it out of solid pine? That would knock a few pounds off the total.

    Weird thing happened to me today.
    Was in GC, playing an AC15CC, talked to another guitarist there who shook his head at the Vox because he 'plays the blues'.

    Are there any blues players who play Voxes?

    Hey, I didn't ask him for advice, we were just talking.
    GC carries Vox here, nobody else does...

    That's what I don't get - why not use a Vox to play the blues? But I can't think of any famous (or infamous) players.
