    Yeah I tend to go out with smaller amps as well. It's funny to think about now that 20 some years ago I got my first TR and thought it was really nice being able to carry a Les Paul in one hand and the TR in the other. It seemed like a light little amp compared to the Peavey head and stupid big 4x12 cab I was using.
    Now I think that Les Paul is too heavy.

    Actually, I helped a little bit my MT, changing the tube to 12AU7, sounds more "fenderish" like that. I dig it more than original that came in...

    The 97 ft² (9m²) homestudio with Marshall Stack and Fender/Vox/Peavey amps is just a few footsteps away...but in a quiet minute,lying on the bed with the tv turned down... it's just me,a Tele and my little red MC..

    I just got to chime in.

    My favorite is the 65 PRRI.

    It doe super clean goodness at low volume and the treble and bass controls are very responsive.

    It has a certain fidelity I like even when quiet.

    I LOVED the sound of my old Silver Face Twin, but you'd need a hella big bedroom to make it cook!
    I'm just sayin'
