I love my Fly a lot because i only use it to rehearse with .. I can use my earrbuds with it so that it don’t disturb the misses ,,I use its big brother , the HT40 live all the time .. love that one too ..
I used to own the ht40. Great amp that you could actually turn way down and still get nice tone.

I don’t own either but I’ve had my eye on both suggestions I made. Especially the Spark. It’s available for pre-order only for now. I’m going to wait until I see more reviews from “regular” players before getting one.
Sorry bout that. I think I directed the question to the wrong person. :D

A bit on the pricey side: Carr Raleigh. Sweet cleans and amazing overdrive with amazing master volume. 3 EL84 watts. A little dark on the tone, but in overdrive, it is creamy

Id like to hear one in person, but this thing intrigues me

Yep. Has been mentioned. I had the huge Line 6 Flextone III xl. It was set up so you could plug into a computer and update things. But I'm really after simplicity...ie whatever is included. Do there's that.

Blackstar HT1R. has headphone jack, line out, and sounds really good through a 112 extension cab. Also a line in for MP3 etc.

I have one, and have seen them as low as $150 used.

I keep bouncing between that, the Princeton, and the 5E3... but the 5E3 is way too loud for my condo.
Ultimately, the Studio-One would be the *smarter* option for my needs... but it's not tweed :D
I had the 5E3 in its original, Fender issued form and it was a fun amp to play with. I picked it up for less than $500. So I'm unlikely to pay more for a copy. At this age and stage, I'd rather delete the factory speaker and use my own speakers. I don't care what it looks like, so, I'm fine with the bare chassis sitting on top of the speaker. So, I might get myself squared away for the circuits at under $300.

The Budda 18 Super Drive is my ATF. However, I don't consider 18W to be "Mini."
Agreed... Not without an attenuator.

Boss Katana-Air is a nice step up from the Fly-3 and a more versatile while still having the option to run from batteries.
20-30 watt... but headphone out to tame it.
Hell... for that matter... the Katana Mk-II 100w head has a 5" speaker for practice, but is still a fully functional head.

IF.....

If the Katana is your style. Lot of fanbois, and a lot of people don't like it.
