A good little practice amp or for small jams is a Silvertone 1481. All tube, 5 watts, volume and tone controls. These amps sound awesome! They either make you play better or sound better I’m not sure which. I bought just the amp on ebay, no cabinate or speaker. Built a cab and installed a 12" Rola speaker out of a 70’s tube organ. I wish all amps sounded this good. I have less than $200 in it. I see them on ebay every so often for less than $200. The origanal comes with an 8" speaker. Silvertones only drawback is the cabinates are usually particle board. All there expertise went into the actual amplifier, which was time well spent!
