I have the Warwick BC10 here at home. Feel free to try it out or borrow it. Great practice amp and I've even used it cranked all the way up for a band rehearsal and was loud enough to hear myself and without distorting like other practice amps can.
A small Rumble combo is also worth trying.

The Phil Jones Bighead is another option, if you've got a good set of headphones... Not much bigger than a pack of cigarettes, and the aux input has the best headphone preamp stage you'll hear for under a grand. Simply the best bass and aux sound. I often use it as a headphone preamp alone.

Runs on internal power for 2-3 hours and fast recharge time. Not to mention it's a fantastic DAW input for your computer!

I also have a Fender B-DEC 30 which is a compact, option-packed portable practice amp (inbuilt rhythm/backing tracks/looper/tuner) with an 8" speaker but the Bighead gets much more use as it sounds so dang good.

Very kind of you to offer. If you say it can be cranked, that's pretty much all I need hehehehe
