I second the Monoprice 15 if you want tubes. I just got one and couldn't be happier for the price. For the situation that I use it I went through a Bugera V5 (too dark), a Vox AC4-12 (too bright and thin at low volumes) and most recently a Peavey Classic Thirty (just too damn loud). The Monoprice is very versatile, tone-wise and has spring reverb, master volume (gain) and effects loop. Sweet tone at low volume and sounds good cranked. Although different sounding, it stands up to my Vibro Champ but is more versatile.
