I wanna make my rig as light and mobile as possible, ideally such that I can easily carry everything in one trip. Right now I’m looking at mini/micro amp heads. The parameters I’m working with: I’m insisting on: About 50 watts (Could be more, but not necessary) Nice clean sound Full-featured tone shaping (at least TMB) Small enough to drop into my pedal/cable bag—or ideally go right onto my pedal board. So about the size of two standard stompboxes, give or take Bombproof From $200-$400 (okay, maybe $500 if it’s AWESOME) I’d like to have, but not a deal-breaker: Reverb FX loop 2 usable channels Aux in Line out I’m NOT particularly interested in: Toobs Modeling High gain I’m considering other solutions, like a nice SS combo with a neodymium speaker, but at this point I’m thinking head/cab. I’ve been doing my homework, and this is what I’ve seen so far: 1. EHX .44 Magnum: nice size, plenty of power, but lacks tone-shaping. More of a backup amp. 2. Foxgear Kolt 45: kinda like the EHX, but with TMB. 3. Quilter Microblock 45: as above. 4. Seymour Duncan Powerstage 170: gobs of power, kinda spendy for the features though... 5. Quilter Interblock 45: a leading contender for size, features and price, but I’m hearing that the knobs/pots seem flimsy... 6. DV Mark Micro 50 ii: this is the only one I’ve been able to actually play! Liked the clean sound, but the “drive” channel is basically just an overdrive pedal circuit that runs on top of the clean channel, and I didn’t think it was very usable. Also, while the second generation of this amp has an effects loop, I haven’t been able to find that version in Japan... 7. Quilter 101 Mini Reverb: more features, but also 200 bucks more than the Interblock, and some folks hereabouts have said they thought these sounded kinda dark? So I went downtown today, and I was chagrined to find that in the second-largest city in Japan, I was unable to find any of these in any stores, with the exception of a used first generation of the DV Mark unit (no FX loop). Most of them can be had online, but I'm really hesitant to splash out without actually playing through them. Are there some other options out there I’m overlooking?
