I scored a silverface Vibro Champ for $330. Love it.
Another vote for the Blackstar ht-1.
A really great sounding amp, IMO.
The distortion is fantastic and the clean tone is very good. The build quality is also excellent considering the price.
I have the Blackstar HT5 Combo - great little amp - cost £200 in the UK - I also have the Bugera 5 watt (V5 I think) - with attenuator to take it down to 1 watt I seem to play through that more than the Blackstar - despite it costing half the price -
I love my Blackstar HT-1 head for home use. Not super loud for cleans, but at home it's ok. Breaks up with the gain pretty quickly. Some great tones, though! I also have the 4x8 Blackstar cab, which is really nice.
I got one of these to try.. a Laney Cub 15r head...it has a <1W input for the house and the 15W input goes pretty loud for jamming.... it's handy.
.3 x ECC83's in its preamp and 2 x EL84's in the power amp.
the <1W cranks up OK for "quieter" use... with some tube saturation.
how much are these selling for in the States?...
Big fan of the VHT Special 6, but it can get LOUD...
I own neither but auditioned a PJ and a tweed BJ several weeks ago at a local GC and the PJ sounded cold sterile icepicky with the BJ sounded fendery cleans meets el84 chime warm and sparkly. The BJ was so good I almost bought it. I don't know if those new tweed BJ variants use a different speaker but the difference between it and the harsh and sterile sounding PJ was like night and day
