lf Small valve/hybrid amp

hey guys, Im writing on behalf of a friend
He is looking at picking up a small amp, mainly for blues and classic rock, perhaps some grunge. He wants a warm tone, whilst retaining that dirty blues noise.

so far we have looke at Blackstar ht1R and Micro Terror.

budget 200 approx, preferable less. who knows!

what are your thoughts on the above amps,

He will be running a Squire 89 strat, and possibly a VM 70's Tele

Edit, also, would it work to run the MT through a 2x10 bass cab?

Has he looked at the Jet City JCA20h?

Out of the MT and the HT-1, I'd take the MT and get a cheap EQ pedal like a Danelectro Fish&Chips. actually either of those amps would benefit greatly from an EQ pedal

i haven't got round to trying them, but maybe a laney cub? i think they're meant to do those tones. they're under budget, and all tube (which is normally what you want for classic rock and blues).
