Hi guys, I don't want to hijack the other thread on small 30w tube heads, so will start another if that's ok. But feels free to delete mods if it's out of order!
I'm not gigging at the moment, but on the look out for a tube head. In my gigging days, I gigged 60W, 40W, 30W and 15W tube amps, and found the sweet spot most of the time with a 15W Blues Junior and a 15W setting on an Orange Dual Terror. The Blues Junior was fine, but got lost sometimes in some of the bigger venues.
I use a Quilter solid state head at the moment for the odd gig, so going to look for a single channel tube head too, and think a 20W might just have the extra poke that I need.
A Laney Cub might do the trick, but again, it's a 15W....
The Jet City has my interest, the 20HV.
I understand people mod them, but would it not be better just saving for a "better" amp instead of having Trigger's brush?
They're so cheap? What's the catch? Are mods really necessary? A tube change I guess would be a good start. Are they just made to be modded?
