    In two different pawn shops I saw a Greta amp for $129 /97 and a Vox 112 with a Celestion G12(?) 25 W 16 ohm for $255/191 (CDN/US) Assuming I can get better pricing, are either of those worth the acquisition?

    Yes on the Greta. Definitely worth $100-125 (IMO), but if you can get it cheaper... The Greta is best using and external cab.

    That VOX cab sounds like the Night Train cab that came with a 16 ohm Greenback. You can’t go wrong with it, but I did read where an owner wanted to swap the speaker, but found it was ‘glued’ in with some kind of silicone. Might be worth keeping in mind if you like to change speakers.

    It's over my $400 limit for amp purchases :) I just noticed it was there; wasn't considering buying it. I'm thinking of keeping the Marshalls, the H&K and the Vox and selling the Micros, the BJ III and the Peavey.

    Canadian :) I've only got one amp that I paid more than $400 for, the Class 5 cost me $510 CAD back in 2008. Some of my amps/cabs are below $300 and even $200.

    @efstop is my brother from another mother when it comes to inexpensive, used low-watt tube heads! This Greta and my $100 Traynor Darkhorse are epic steals!

    I have a Vox V112TV cab, that I switch between powering with a Vox AC4TVH head and Orange Micro Dark head. I've done all my professional recording with the the V112. Absolutely love it.
