9. Supro Reverb 1605R
We say: The USA origin means it isn’t the cheapest small amp out there but overall, we think you’re getting good value as this has to be one of the coolest small amps out there at the moment.

8. Hughes & Kettner Black Spirit 200
We say: The Black Spirit 200 is utterly packed to the gills with features, including Bluetooth, onboard reverb, delay and modulation effects, power amp sagging control, Red Box DI output with eight cab simulations and outputs for cabs and FRFR speakers - oof!
