    I just picked up a Tweaker myself. 15 watts of TONE!! Also got it VERY cheap!! Not hard to find for $250-300 used.
    The Sweet 16 IS a great amp also. You can't go wrong there. I've seen some very good deals on them too.

    I also have an Egnater Tweaker 15 head. Sounds great and it is my go-to amp now a days. Plus its a 'hekova' lot lighter to haul around than my Mesa Boogie. My friend has a small handmade amp that I really like. Its from a small operation here in Sacramento called TubeSonic. Excellent tone from a ~7W / 10" speaker. TubeSonicAmps.com I think I will get one of these as well, very soon.

    It's expensive for the wattage, but it's fantastic.
    Sounds great.

    Cool amp but be careful. I've heard that under-powering your speakers can kill them. Though I wouldn't know from 1st hand experience. I usually kill them with too much power.
    It can drive any 4 to 16 ohm cab with no problems.

    I just got this, Splawn Super Sport:

    22 watts but it's got a good master. Nice clean with lots of headroom and 2 gears of overdrive and a boost.

    Also, I really dig the Marshall SL-5 for home playing. It's almost as big and heavy as the Splawn but for low volume playing it's great if you dig the basic sound as it's not as versatile. 5 watts is barely enough volume to get over a light handed drummer, but for just jamming or recording alone it's fine. The 1 watt setting on the Marshall does darken the tone quite a bit but if you bump the treble and presence you can get usable tones.

    I've been looking at small tube heads and combos, and decided to go with an H&K Tubemeister 18 head and H&K 1-12 cab. I have another 1-12 cab (a Blackstar) which I can leave at my drummer's house, and only have to carry the head (in its own little padded bag). My back will love it.

    Oh cool. I have been interested in Splawn's stuff for a while now.

    The Egnater Rebel 20 is another nice low wattage amp. Adjustable from 1-20 watts...

    Haven't played the Matchless, but the Carr and Dr Z rock! Also consider the Maz Jr 16 with the additional attenuator. It's a monster amp.

    I recently got a Lazy J 20 fully loaded with attenuation, reverb and tremolo and this is the best amp I have played through for home and small gigs/rehearsal
