Palomino V8...

10" speaker, gain and tone controls, and just a great overall sound. Best in Class, IMHO.

You should add the Crate Palomino V8 to the poll.

I've been GASing for a 5W tube lately, and I really wish I could afford a Cornford Harlequin or a Laney Lionheart. But I can't.
#5
I don't know how to add to the poll now. We can just call other Palomino V8 though, because that seems to be the other big one.
#7
I personally love the VJ, but the combo is kinda lackluster, the Palomino V8 is totally awesome though.

Personaly, I'm caught between the Palomino V8 and the Valve Junior head (not combo).

I really dig the Champ, actually, but I haven't played the Crate and Peavey ones. I didn't vote on the poll because of that. Champ beats VJ in my book, though- although maybe that's cos I own the VJ combo, not the head. I've heard it's a pretty big difference.
#13
Fender Champ (not the Champion).

By the way, does anyone know whether Marshall ever made a single-ended amp?

I'd say palomino v8 since i have it of course. :p But the champ is also really nice and I have yet to try the evj, but at my gc they have the head and cab in the corner so maybe i'll give it a go.

Palomino yes, my vote goes to the Crate V8, should be up in the poll. I've only had the chance to play a V32, but if it's nears as nice as the V32 the V8 should win.

I liked the Valve Junior head, it was alright.

I was reading on the Crate Palomino V8. The scuttle-butt says it is now made in Vietnam and is not the quality it once was. Anybody got any more info on this?

The VK and VJ are made in China, and the Fender's probably made in Mexico, what are you gonna do? That's how they keep the prices down on these amps.
