Just got a new amp a vox ac10 and it sounds fantastic with my strat. Perfect combination if size , weight and a huge sound. Only thing is that it runs hot. According my local Amy guy, it’s a design that the tubes are always working.

Congrats on the new amp! I'm glad to see so many good sounding small tube amps out there now. Good sound at volumes you can actually use when you aren't playing at a club 🙂

If it's tubes, it's hot. My Peavey Classic 30 II runs hot too. 

Nice amp!

Or I have heard good things about Bugera V22 new less than $400.00 : Building on Bugera's original and inspired V22 amp design, the impressively full-featured and handbuilt, 22W, 2-Channel Vintage V22 Infinium tube combo amplifier not only exudes vintage sound and style, but possesses modern features that will launch your tone into the sonic stratosphere. Loaded with three 12AX7 preamp and two EL84 power tubes, this incredible boutique-style powerhouse gives you the flexibility of two independent channels and selectable reverb, both switchable via the included heavy-duty footswitch. Add to this to the revolutionary Infinium Tube Life Multiplier Technology and amazing 12" Turbosound speaker, and the Vintage V55 Infinium becomes one extraordinarily versatile tone-machine that is ideally-suited for the studio, stage, practice room and concert hall!

The Vintage V22 Infinium features true Class-A technology with a three 12AX7 front-end and two EL84 tube power stage. A masterfully crafted all-tube combo amplifier, the V22 provides sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression, resulting in the warm distortion and break-up you™ve come to appreciate from those treasured vintage amplifiers of yesteryear.
