Yeah another suggestions thread, sorry. But I'm looking for a small amp to be able to use in a halls of residence at University and at the same time be able to jam with my friend bassist who has a 30 watt amp, so amp modelling technology here is kind of ruled out. So ideally I'm looking for something that can switch to 5 watts or below, or maybe even be a 10 watt or something as long as it will be loud enough to jam. I have £400-450 which is about $700. I play a lot of Alice Cooper and Rhoads-era Ozzy style stuff and some modern metal to boot so I'd really like something British voiced. Obviously I play blues and country on top but thats not too important as all you need is a clean channel for it.
It sounds like a stupid question asking how to spend X amount of money on a small amp but I really wanna get something I'm not gonna want to boot out and regret due to selling my Bugera for (but obviously I can't use that when it comes to quiet practice). I've heard about the Hughes and Kettner Tubemeister 18 combo, and that seems to be worth the stretch of a bit more... Any ideas? Cheers

I use a Vox VT15 for playing at home. It sounds pretty nice for a small amp, has a truckload of effects and sounds, and is affordable aswell.

I would check out the low wattage egnater (variable power) or blackstar amps.

I thought the TT had an excellent classic/hard rock sound, but there's no clean channel, and it's overpriced for what it is.

What about a Blackstar HT-20?

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.

HT20 owner here, chipping in.

If the sound is what you want, then it will definitely be loud enough for a drummer.
Although it can go quiet enough for home volumes, am I right in thinking a considerate guitarist might go for something even quieter for uni halls? (Although i do believe the HT20 has a headphone jack, never used it though).

EDIT: Look around at 18watt marshall clones too, about as britishvoiced as you could get.

the laney lc15 amp is british tone, all valve - with an od pedal will get you tones you want - cheap too

Another vote for a TT and a 1x12, i've got one and they sound excellent.
