Lightweight tube amp

Back to the Gear Room

Jan 26, 2010 6:22 AM GMT

Does anyone know of a high quality, harp friendly tube amp that is lightweight, relatively small and puts out maybe 10-20 watts or so? I may be making up an ideal product that doesn't exist, but I'm hoping it does. It is for a friend who lives in a big city. I think that a combo amp with a built-in speaker would be more portable, but it would be worth considering a separate head and cab arrangement if it met the other criteria.

Of course, I started looking myself, and I found this one:

Anyone ever play harp through one?

10-20 watt is a relatively big and loud tube amp like fender pro jr.

Most people prefer harpgears. I haven't tried them yet, hope I'll try. They are still big (enough for club gigs).

For overdriven tone at acoustic jams I use great pretty Danelectro Honeytone.

You might try Randy at

I just picked up one of his off Ebay that arrived two days ago and have barely had a chance to try it. Seems like it is just what I need for my basement though.

Joe - You'll be much happier with the Double Trouble than the HG30. It's louder and more feedback resisitant. I liked the tone better. You got that amp at a great price. Not as good as the price I paid for mine, but pretty darn close.

Do you ABing this amps with harpgear? They looks sweet, it's so interesting how are they sounds. Most of them are 12" which means they are big and heavy and maybe some kind of muddy for harmonica, but some 10" looks pretty for harp.
