what is the best tube amp but the cheap one? i don't care if it's like 1 watt. I just play by myself, please give me the name and link if you can!

Blackheart Little giant or Epiphone valve junior.
Or wait for the Blackheart killer ant to come out (1 watt, or maybe 1/2, i'm not 100 percent sure on that).

^ but i found the 8" speaker in the V8 to be a bit lacking. i like the little giant and the vj because you can get a head and pair it with a nice speaker (or two, or four :P: ). if the killer ant sounds anything like the little giant with half the volume then it would be a very nice choice for playing at home.

EDIT: and im about 99% positive that the V8 doesnt have an effects loop. i dont think the v16 does either actually.

False!!!!!!!!Wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has 10" speaker, more than enough for "practice" plus great tone with master volume and EQ. Plus $100 cheaper

and he doens't need other speaker to plug it, because as stated, he needs it for "practice"

Don't say things you don't even know. Clearly you don't have the knowledge of the amp!!!!

Check out the Fender champ amps. Depending on the year and model they're between 5 and 25 watts. You'll be able to get a used one in the $200-$300 range.

ok, so its a 10" speaker. i still thought that the speaker was very small sounding. i really like the tone of the palomino series, but i think you have to step up to the v16 or v32 to get the full potential of the amp. i tried out a few 5w amps and found that while i loved the v16, i had to pass on the v8. the master volume is great, but the small speaker and the fact that it doesnt come in head form are turnoffs for me.

Great minds think alike, Colin. The same reccommendation at the same time.

so i have no knowledge of an amp because i didnt read the manual? i know more about amps than you do, so dont be giving me that crap. its a line out jack that doubles as an effects loop because its stereo, its not a straight up effects loop. no where outside of the manual does it say it can be used for that. ive looked at the amp multiple times, played it multiple times, and i even checked the specs listed. so if you want to correct someone for an excusable mistake, be polite. otherwise you can just shove it.

OMG, dude!!!! He say he play alone.... and he needs a cheap amp. Do you know how loud a 5 watt tube is? 15 watt would drive the neighbors crazy, plus if he want to upgrade later, then the v8 is going to be a great practice amp. You seriously don't read anything

Ohh Tiger here's the link!!!

You obviously didn't know anything about the amp because you said that you "found the 8" speaker in the V8 to be a bit lacking" and for a guy who "played it [amp] multiple times" shouldn't you know the basic knowledge of it? Like the size of the speaker maybe
