I've been thinking of a Ghia as my first boutique amp. However I only play at home and at my church. So I can never really turn of that loud. With my Vox AC4 I can just get to the point of power tube breakup when using a boost pedal and sticking the amp in a closet. I prefer power tube breakup vs a pedal into a clean amp. Since the Ghia is too loud to naturally breakup in my settings would the Mini be a good fit?
I mostly play a Tele, use reverb and delay pedals and boost or OD pedals as needed. Thanks for the insight.
I like simple designs, but I'm wondering if the Mini is too simple. A tone control would be nice.
Late to this thread. After a few days with my Mini head 2 things struck me (besides liking the overall tone a lot). Playing through a 70 watt Celestion, it cleans up nicer than I thought it would. It's also pretty loud for a low power amp. Regarding no tone control on the amp. I'm not sure a single passive tone control (roll off highs) would really make a difference to me as I can do that on my guitars. If I decide at some point I want some serious control over bass/mids/highs, an active EQ pedal would be the way to go, imho. At the moment, I'm fine with it as is.

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
