    How about a Fender deluxe reverb or a Fender Princeton reverb ?

    Just my opinion, but there's only one low powered amp I've heard lately that I really and truly lust after, and that's a Marshall JTM1.

    That thing just creates tones that are positively majestic.

    I WILL have one.

    All 3 Marshall Astorias are rated 30 watts sound amazing and have a power reduction option of 5 watts.

    Dr Z has several options 30 watts and under.

    I agree with you.

    JTM1 is a fantastic little amplifier.

    I was looking for many years before I found my JTM1 Offset.

    Looking for something I don't remember what.
    No budget limit?
    My Astoria Dual is pretty hard to beat. Semi hand wired, 30/5 watt switchable. 2 channels, both sound great. Cathode bias, so drop any octal power tubes in you fancy to change flavour. Footswitchable loop. Can use different impedance cabs with it due to the clever speaker output design (same as JVM). Can't fault it really, apart from it's heavy as a combo, especially with a G12H Cream or Greenback.

    We were just talking about a killer amp on another post that fits your call, 2202 by Ceriatone. I'm going to order one myself. Do some research on it, 20w JCM 800 in a small head or combo that gets rave reviews and costs $625 brand new. They also make a mini-Jube (2525) and the "Hey What" series are HiWatt's. All hand made point to point construction.

    I got the AD30. I am happy with it, but also find myself thinking it would be nice to have a Twin (or whatever) so I am seriously considering going over to the dark side because that will put a bunch of classic amps at my fingertips.

    Nope, going over to the dark side for versatility.
