    NAD

    Well I decided.
    I do want a reverb pedal as well--but this was too good a deal, and a small tube/hybrid amp is on my short list as well.
    So I had to get it.

    So what did I get?
    As mentioned in another thread--It's an Orange Micro Dark amp head
    This thing is tiny & weighs under 2 pounds.
    1 tube--so it qualifies--and it qualifies soundwise as well.
    the growl you get from the gain, as well as a soft clean sound are nice and both suit my playing.
    They sound particularly good with my Ibanez AF95 hollow body--but with other guitars as well.
    I tried it at the store with the matching Orang amp cab--but also headphones--and it sounds real nice through my headphones.
    i do have a former Fender Combo that is now just the speaker & cab that I got along with a footpedal (2 switches--one regular/normal and the other is a momentary one) and a small Fender sign for under $10--but I need to get the speaker wire & jack to be able to use it as a cab--and see if the speaker is any good. If not--well I'll buy a new one or get the orange cab.

    So far it's still the initial "honeymoon" period.
    but for a small amp to sue around home & stuff like that this one is quite nice
    20 watts as well--this thing can get real loud.

    I'll post pictures when I have my picture hosing site stuff worked out.
    But it pretty much looks like this...

    A how fast the GAS can grow- congratulations!

    (Based on what SC has told us about losing all his pictures online, I think that picture hosing is probably more accurate than picture hosting...)

    It wasn't fast--I had my eye on one of these for sometime, but was planning to get a Reverb pedal first, but when I got it for about a third off the regular price I normally see them go for (And even more off going by some online prices I've seen) t--well it was too tempting.

    there are other small amps I would have liked to get, but they were 3 or 4 times the price.
    I am more than satisfied with my decision.

    (And yes I do need to take care of the hosting, before I get a hosing.)

    Congrats on your New Amp day, zontar. Small amps aren't my cup of tea, but as we often observe, we all have different tastes in gear. From what I've read about Orange, it seems to be a respected brand. I hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

    It is 20 watts--and plugged into a 4X12 cab--they can be quite loud (I don't have a 4x12 cab--but I've heard it)
    I prefer light amps for some specific reasons.
    Nothing against big amps --just don't make sense for me.

    20 Watts should be enough for most normal applications...

    It's plenty
    My other practice amp for guitar is 15 watts.
    It will be fun once I get a cab to use the two together from the stereo outputs of my delay pedal.

    Yeah my 30-40 watt tube amps can only be played with the volume around 1/10 at home. Even on a gig they wouldn't go up much more than 2/10 unless it is outdoors

    Most people seem to think a 100 watt amp is twice as loud as a 50 watt amp, so a 20 watt amp must not be very loud

    But that's not how it works
