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?

Those would work through the 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).

Only on UG would I say I got engaged and bought a jet city and get congratulated on the amp

i got an email the other day from dolphin music, if they still have it they had the cub 8 for £89 (and i think delivery wasn't too much, either).
