Waking the Neighbors

Rock and Roll is supposed to be loud.  And rebellious.  But like Mick Jagger and Jeff Beck, we all gotta grow old sometime.  And when you think about it, growing old is better than the alternative.

Even old guys like to rock.  But when you are at home, and the family is around or the next door neighbors have their windows open, how is one supposed to rock?

Great low wattage tube amps is how.

There are numerous low wattage tube amps that have come on the market recently that deliver that crunchy breakup that only comes from a tube amp cranked up and driving the power tubes.  And with the proliferation of low-cost PA systems, guitarist can now gig with low-wattage amps too.

Here are 3 of our favorite low-wattage amps that really deliver the goods:

The Orange Tiny Terror–a 7 or 15 watt Class A tube amp driven by a pair of EL84 tubes and comes in a very cool package:

The Port City Twelve, a 12 watt combo or head driven by a pair of 6V6 tubes:

And finally comes the Vox AC4TV, a very cool, rich sounding 4 watt amp that also comes in either a combo or a mini-stack.  The AC4TV is driven by a single EL84 tube and can run in 4 or 1 or 1/4 watt modes:
