Hi,

I'd like to buy a smaller tube Combo I can also use for gigs. New or used...

What do you think about the Origin 20C?
Also thought about an AC15C1 nur a lot of people are telling they are picky amps...?!
Another fine amp would be a Peavey Classic30 I used to own once.

What would you recommend for Blues, Rock, Hardrock, Southern Rock?

Those are fine amps listed. I got a used in great shape Marshall dsl40c. Love the thing! And switchable to 20 watts.

I played one at a jam once and was very impressed. Thought it sounded excellent and I normally play through a few fairly nice vintage fenders so they set quite a high benchmark. Again, I though it sounded excellent for the price. I would be tempted to opt for that over the vox...I agree that, in my experience, they are quite picky amps particularly if you use pedals

This would be the point. I would like to push the Origin in case I would buy this one. I've heard it takes pedals very well.

What about the lack of low-end many people are talking about?

You're writing about the Origin, right? That's great.

Fender Pro Jr. - then either order a Mojotone aftermarket cabinet with a 12 inch speaker and transplant it into that, or get an external 2 x 12 and plug into that with the speaker out. Sleeper amp that will blow your doors off.

Johan

Our very own Alvin Youngblood Hart (@AlvisX) killing it here without an overdrive pedal - just straight in

Yep.
Likewise, the Blues Junior gets a bad rap, and only part of that is deserved from the solid state reverb recovery.
The main reason they sound bad is simply the cabinet is too small for a 12" speaker.
You've got an amp and speaker comparable to the 5E3 in a cabinet the size of a 5F2-A.
I generally ran my Blues Junior into my 4x10 and it really opened it up.
