TO user ipressrecord uses his Pro Junior all the time through his iso cab with clients, and every time I hear his guitar sounds I ask him how he got them..
I would love to hear more info on ipressrecord's "iso cab". running a control room-less studio... sounds like something i'd be into.

It's not really a lunchbox amp, but the Marshall Class 5 sounds really good. I'm very picky and have owned vintage Marshalls. This is a really cool little amp.

I just picked up a Jet City Picovalve. I really like it. I haven't tried any other power tubes, but the 6L6 it comes with gets dirty quickly and in a good way. 2 Watts is almost too loud for my house though. It is pretty much what I was looking for at a price that I'm not going to complain about.

i used to have an Emery Superbaby which is a great sounding and very versatile little amp.

My current favorite is an old Newcomb H-10, 10 blazing watts of dual 6V6 power. Not single ended like the Superbaby and others mentioned here, but i dig the bass more. It's got a just slightly tighter sound than the single ended amps i've heard, still plenty tubey and warm though.
