Anyone have or tried one of the small Randall combo 5 watt tube amps for home use?
I had a Peavey 6505 combo, but it was just a pain in the ass lugging it around the house, and I couldn't convince the wife it was an attractive addition to the family room.

I have the Diavlo 1W head and it's great for jamming at home. I play it through my 2X12 and it can get marginally loud with volume at the 2-3 o'clock position +. The Tone stack shift is handy too. I'd Imagine the 5W would be a bit more tame with the 10" speaker in it. Word to the wise: an eq pedal and a touch of overdrive in front of this thing really wakes it up. Hope this helps :2cents:

I have an opportunity to buy a brand new Diavlo 5 now for $230, when they are $350 almost everywhere else. So Im thinking about pulling the trigger because of the price.

Might I ask why you were hauling the peavey around the house? I just play in the room the amp is in :lol:

Hopefully the new amp is sweet!
