    Thanks again lads the simpler the better to be honest for me. I know nothing about gear or tinkering with them. Just need a good wee reliable amp that doesn’t blow the head off anyone when your trying to drive it.

    I have to say the blues junior is a great rig. I toured with Candye Kane using one. It had the BillM mods. These days though I will be crucified for saying this, I love my little quilter 8″. I can use it at any gig and I mean any gig.

    Tommy, do you have the ‘Aviator’..? I like the quilters & they are reasonably priced. I’ve looked at buying direct but I’m not sure if I want to take the risk. Are they as reliable as they say..?

    Ebay has em. I have a ZT Lunchbox that continues to amaze people when they hear it. It has a little 4″ speaker that breaks up with decent tone at high volumes and will keep up with any drummer but I’ve been looking hard at these. Sounds like Tommyboy67 is describing almost any Vintage 47 amp.

    They are very reliable. Super light as well. I don’t think you will be disapointed. If you are looking for that Class A reedy tone dfinitely jump into the vintage market. I suggest having one of each lol.

    The micro pro looks a bit fiddly whereas the Aviator looks a lot simpler..?

    I’d recommend the new 18W Epiphone Electar Century app which is selling for just under £300 over here in the UK, so it’s right on your budget. Got mine the other day and am loving it. No onboard reverb so you’ll need a reverb pedal for that. Here’s the link to it on the Epiphone site, plus a link to a guy demoing it on YouTube better than I ever could!

    Did have a look at them sound good but are sturdy enough for regular gigging.

    Good point, might not be sturdy enough for regular gigging. Also, controls are slightly awkward to get to being at the bottom of the rear of the amp if you needed to adjust mid-gig. For home use however, I reckon these little amps are a steal.

    Thought that. They do look perfect for home

    It’s so ironic you guys bring up the epiphone. My buddy Bob Cooper called this morning raving about how cool it is. I’m gonna try to get out and play one.

    I’m also planning to get one of those epi amps as soon as they are available here they look really killer.
