I was looking for a bedroom tube amp for a good price. I want something that'll do nice cleans with a really nice overdrive. Any suggestions?

I've got only 250$ to spend.

I would recommend saving a few extra bucks and buying a Silverface Fender Champ

Blackstar HT1 is a nice, small tube amp that you can get pretty cheap. I got one and it's perfect for bedroom use.

I fooled around with an Orange Micro Terror head & "cab" in a local store last month.

I was thinking about it for my son's use in his bedroom.

Highly impressive range of sounds and simplicity. If I remember correctly it was under $250 brand new.


I would have bought it on the spot, however, I've blown my budget on music gear lately and wanted to shop around some more.

That little head and cab was sweet. I'd also like to hear it with a 12" speaker in a cab. Cool that you can get into it for $250 and then add on larger cabs later, though.

The micro Terror is decent but it is not a tube amp. For apartment playing I do not recommend a tube amp at all. This depends on your neighbors and how well the apartment was built but tube amps get very loud, very quickly. Not saying you cannot dial one in at bedroom levels but most tend to prefer the sound a little bit cranked. If you truly want all tube then I would suggest a smaller wattage amp, depending on what style you are playing. If you can settle going outside of all tube there are a couple decent hybrid amps that others recommend. Peavey vypyr and tube vypyr get a lot of recommendations around here.
Max budget?

It has a tube preamp, and that’s all that matters for a bedroom amp.

what type of cleans and overdrive?
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

True. Just trying to clarify when labeling something as tube whereas it is a hybrid. Just want to make sure that TS knows what he is looking for. I would recommend hybrid for bedroom. I almost recommended the Peavey tube vypyr.

For that budget, the Vypyr Tube is really hard to beat. Very large range of sounds, and it does well at low volumes.
