    It's not that I don't want small glass, because I kinda do. I'm just so addicted to bigger bottles....

    Only puny fellas not in storage, Little Yamaha THR5 for acoustic fun, and I guess the Vibro champ is just a cute little thing.

    Got a little Fender Champ and a little VOX of some ilk down in a hole, might come out again once the home Reno’s are done and the shack isn’t quite so disheveled.

    I am shocked that I don't already have a THR-10. I sure should!

    Got both cheap - some TLC and good to go. They get most playtime being my living room amps.

    I don't know if this counts as "mini" but its both the smallest amp I own and my favorite.

    I could swear there was a thread about small amps just some days ago;)

    * the Dano+Smokey amp combo is my " gotta have something in a hotel room when traveling!" 'rig'

    I LOVE tiny amps. But then I live in a shoebox and I hate carrying heavy stuff.

    Vox mini 5 - small, loud and versatile
    Blackstar Fly 3 - for taking to the park and playing to the birds
    ZT Lunchbox reverb - I still haven't been able to try this out at high volume, not great at low volume
    Yamaha THR5 - nothing beats this for home use

    I would love one of these. Probably the coolest looking mini amp ever.

    I saw the movie Crossroads the other day and now I'm hankering for a Pignose.

    And I don't even play guitar anymore.

    My big, "Desktop rig," is a Wampler, Tumnus, > Analogman mini bicomp, Ross side, into an Ethos TLE, into a MUZA FD900, into a Yamaha mixer, into a Zoom PQ3HD. Boy, that's a mouth full...

    Here are the results.
