ok i have two choice has to what kind of small (bout 5w) tube amp i should get.

an used 1953 Silvertone 1340 combo (250$ (Canadian$))



or a blackheart little giant half stack (400$ (Canadian$) new with the cab)

runner up
Peavey valveking royal 8
Orange tiny terror
something else...


i mainly play stuff with alot of dirty distortion and fuzz and thats why im hesitant bout the silvertone (i use peddals tho) i like the fact its more then 2x vintage.

i heard alot of great stuff about the little giant and heard it loves peddal.

what do you think?

There's something cool about having a vintage tube amp. If you plan just to practice, I'd say go for it. There will be gigs and time and money to be spent later that you can use to get a great 2X12 combo, or a nice 50W half stack if you need it, but youll always have that silvertone, if you get it.

It could become a sentimental piece. And thats the lure to me.

The I suppose you already have your mind made up. Tube Saturation is all about the appropriate volume matched to the wattage. If what you want is drive, tube drive that is, you may have to look into something a bit more "Metal" oriented.

the silvertone + INFINITY. you know page recorded most of Led Zeppelin's early albums on a little silvertone very similar to that. They pack more balls than you'd think. get the silvertone.
