Right now for my main amp I use a Solid State Randall. I rather like it, however it's more of a high gain punk/metal amp.

I'm looking for a very cheap tube head for a more Bluesy/Classic Rock/Older Punk tone.

Right now I'm thinking about either an Ibanez TSA15H 15 Watt head:

Or a Jet City JCA20H 20 Watt head:

Out of these, which is more recommended? I'm also open to other options for around $300. I know it's a pretty slim budget, but eh. I'll be plugging it into a 4x12.

That's a pretty good list, thanks. Is there one you particularly recommend?

Availability is kind of an issue with those too I suppose. I didn't find much with a rather hasty search on the internet. I live near the Minneapolis/St. Paul area though, so there's a fair amount of people around.

Second on the Blackheart Hot Head. Rad little amp.

I second the Jet City 20w head. I think there is a 2 channel version though, get that one instead if you consider JCA
Squier Strat
Behringer Fuzz

I also am in the Twin Cities metro and noticed this on Craigslist yesterday. It should do exactly what you are looking for and is only $349. It basically sounds a lot like the Marshall JCM800.

The amp

There is also a Crate Palomino on there. These amps are really sleepers. Sound like Fender on the clean channel. Nice cleans. On the dirty side of things, it basically sounds a lot like a Marshall.
