Hey everyone,
So i own a 100 watt fender twin which happens to be the love of my life but sometimes its not always practical to take it wherever I want, so for example if I want to go play with my guitar in another room for a little bit......so im looking for a really cheap small amp for that sort of purpose like a fender frontman or something....anyhow does anyone have any suggestions?

It can be a good idea
I can understand the issue, twins are notoriously havy
Maybe look at the smaller Valvetronix and maybe the Cube? (but i think the smaller cubes don't have great amp models :/)

I reccomend trying to find an old Premier Amp, they are very simple and amazingly nice. I currently have a Twin-8T and it is the most toneful amp ive ever used.

Other than that one of the Epiphone tube amps or a Crate Tube amp.

A Roland Micro Cube if you want versatility, or a little 5 watt tube combo if you're looking for tone.

The Micro Cube wouldn't be able to, but it's older brother the Cube 30 can. The micro is only 2 watts if I'm not mistaken.


A 5 watt tube would be able to, but it'd have absolutely no cleans at that volume.

Yeah - what Aetius said!

Fender just started building the Fender Champion 600. I picked one up for $191 at my local Guitar Center a couple of months ago. It's got a 6V6 and a 12AX7 - makes 5 watts -uses a 6" speaker. Has a volume knob and an on/off switch and that's it. You crank it to 12 (the max) and let your hands do the rest. It does have very nice vintage tone - I suspect a Twin lover would really enjoy it.

It's great for sitting around the living room - you can play soft and people can still talk. You can jam with acoustic guitars if you don't lean into it too hard. It doesn't have enough guts to keep up with a drummer (need a Pro Jr at least - for a quiet drummer - otherwise as we all know - you need 40 or more watts.) I take it to a buddy's house and jam with him - and he plays thru a Marshall TSL 50 watt combo (master-volumed way back of course.)

I love this amp.
