I've been ampless for this year after selling my old JCM800 back to Danny. Now, my tax return is due and I want to get back in the game. My budget will be around $1k.

I'm pretty open on what to get. My only requirements are that it be fairly portable and under 20w-ish.

I've got the usuals on my watchlist... Blues Jrs, Vox AC10/15's etc. I'm open to modellers too - and I've been seeing lots of threads about this Boss Katana thing.

What should I go for?

I think the Katana is a no brainer for you.....valve amp feel with built in effects, wattage adjustment for home use and recordable :idea: ... go on, join the KOC :thumbup: (I'm serious to)

Well if it is "hype" at the price point who really cares? Far better than spending $2.5K plus for something like a kemper ...again its a no brainer really

Welcome back...

I'd love to sell you my Mea Electra Dyne or Laney Lionheart 2x12 but a Katana 100W Combo will be perfect for you.

Yup, bang for your buck you can't beat them, $450 for a 50W amp with effects that sounds fantastic is crazy good!
