Hey guys I'd like to pick u p small-ish tube head. I'm having a fair amount of success using my vetta as my main rig but it has left me craving something tubey for home use and due to the age of the vetta it would ease my nerves to have a backup so it woul be nice if it could get over our very loud drummer. So I'm looking for something not more than 50 watts and no more than £600.
Amps I'm considering:-
Orange th30 - a little larger than I'd like but simple and great tone
Dual terror - perfect size but perhaps not enough gain?
Egnater tweaker 40 - looks interesting don't know much about it.
Engl thunder 50 - I've gassed hard for this in the past but would really like something with more character this time
I'm playing stream of passion early within temptation stuff but I also want to be able to get some hard rock/blues tones as well.
50w is not a small amp by any means. it's almost 90% the volume of a full 100w heat which with a minute movement of the volume control on a 100w head you can achieve the same volume. A small amp is 10-15w and even they are approximately 50% the achievable volume of a larger amp
