Tiny new tube amp info thread! (WIP) As a result of a previous discussion thread, I decided it was time we place all our small tube amp knowledge in one place. I know we have "Show your small tube amp" but I figured that a thread which has more specific information for potential buyers and is not so pic-heavy would be a useful thing to have. This is not just a thread for straight out information, feel free to ask questions too! Before I start, these are the aims of my thread: * By 'tiny tube amp' I mean an all-tube amplifier combo or head that is capable of running at 5W or less. This can be expanded if others request, and I will cover the Oranges that go to 7.5W further on. * I will gather my information as much as I can from old threads here to keep things personal, and greatly appreciate input from members about their favourite amps! * There will be a list of amps and then hopefully a few comments about each one from members or from internet research. * I intend that the information here will be most useful to those looking to buy new amps. If I would cover every single small vintage or otherwise unavailable amp save for the used market it'd be a never ending story! Also I don't wish to get people excited about an amp only to force them to trawl through the second-hand market on the off-chance that someone might be selling one. * I will try my best to keep updated and keep an eye out for new releases. So, the tiny tube amp. Becoming increasingly popular, tiny tube amps are happy in your bedroom and they keep your neighbours happy too! In the market for something small but punchy? Here is a list of amps that are available to buy new: Truly tiny - 5W or less: Blackheart Killer Ant (1W) (SS rectifier) Blackheart Little Giant (5W) (SS rectifier) Blackstar HT1 (1W) and HT5 (5W) Bogner Panama (4W/2W) (these ain't cheap!)

VHT AV-SP1-6 Special 6 (6W) Vox Night Train (switchable to 7.5W) [I'm sure there are plenty more of these] A quick note on hybrids: Most hybrids are seen as solid state with a novelty tube, but a couple of them are regarded quite highly, namely the Orange Micro Terror and the Vox Valvetronix range. [Are the Spider valves and Vyper valves hybrid too?] So, there's the list. I am going to do more research into it, look at videos and comments from users on other forums, but I thought I'd at least get the list up there. I now open the floor to ETSG members should you have any comments to add about any of these amps! Being British I've probably missed a lot of amps known mainly in the US. Let me know if you find any more! I myself am looking for a British high-gain sound from a tiny amp, preferably 1W or 2W, not too modern sounding. I tried Blackstar, wasn't for me.
