Long story short, I’ve been displaced. About three weeks ago we had to leave home and come back to the states in a hurry. Had to leave all my gear, I’ll get it all back when things calm down though. anyway, after three weeks I’ve finally gotten my hands on a guitar again, but still no amp. I’ve been thinking about that little 5 watt tube monoprice amp, but I’m on the fence. what do you guys think of it? does anybody know where you can get the older version with the controls on the top? It looks a little smaller, which is a plus because we’re going to have to move around some until we can go back overseas.
