First tube amp??
ok i have nothing but a crappy frontman 15 g right now and i figure i'd get at 5 watt tube amp --- less tubes to replace and lighter---

i've narrowed it down to

peavey valveking royal 8
blackheart little giant
epi valv jr

the valveking's master volume seems great, but i hear the other two sound a lot better

I've heard sound bites of the BH, and it's really nice for a variety of tones.

The VJ is good too, but bear in mind, it only has a single volume control, so tweaking your sound might be hard without an EQ.

Never tried the Royal 8, though.
