It's not easy fitting amps into neat little groups. Valve vs solid state, power levels and sound options all matter for different reasons… but, thanks to the power of Ask MusicRadar and you, the gear-loving, music-making community, we’ve nailed one group once and for all!
Here you will find a gallery of the very best low-powered tube amp heads under £300 as chosen by you. And by scrolling through to the end (following our poll-to-end-all-polls), you’ll find our top pick. First up, though: Matamp’s Little Rock…
Why you love it:
“Matamp Little Rock. Although they don't make them any more. Is that cheating?” (Thanks, pedro_santiago, it kind of is cheating but we like fatfreddy’s reply…)
“@pedro_santiago, the Matamp Little Rock is indeed a little gem but the modern equivalent would be the Minimat II - i've got one and it kicks ass. Check it.” (Thanks, fatfreddy)
