So the plan for the gig rig is a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and a Boss ME-80. I'll be playing mostly classic rock covers. I'm thinking a smaller amp for practicing with at home and with the band is a good idea, still paired with the Me-80. Let's figure used, $100 - $200. Find a Super Champ? Roland Cube?
May want to look at low watt used tube head. Something that stays clean at the volume your looking for. My Vj worked great for practice with multi-effects, but band situation it lacked volume without micing it.
