The little "Wangs" 1 watt amp head seems pretty promising. They're only around $200 and sound great!

Put some NOS tubes in them and they're fantastic!

The Wang amps are built well with quality components, fun little amps for sure. They were really cheap when they first came out.

currently tolexing this little thing. it's a tiny for me (never owned anything less than 40 watts) tweed champ circuit built in my apartment (oversized cabinet for 10" speaker down the line). next project is a tube headphone amp for apartment playing. this is still too loud, but sounds incredible.

has mod for switchable negative feedback, some other switchable tone buggery, plus i built a series/parallel power soak to lower the volume a bit. classic tone iron, cheap jj tubes, mallory caps, blah blah.
