Monoprice is a brand that carries a line of affordable tube amps, with specs that give the competition a run for their money.

The 611815 is an excellent specimen from their lineup, a 1×12 combo tube amp with a Celestion Red Truvox 1215 speaker, a big step up compared to the usual generic speakers used in similarly priced amps.

It doesn’t skimp on tube components either, with three ECC83/12AX7 preamp tubes, and two EL84 poweramp tubes. For the price, it also comes with more controls, including tone and 3-band EQ.

15-Watts can still be quite loud, especially when considering its tube setup and 12″ speaker. Thankfully, it comes with an attenuator switch that lets you lower the power rating to just 1-Watt, allowing for crank tones at room friendly volume levels.

Other features include built-in reverb and FX loop.

When it comes to value for money, the Monoprice 611815 is the low-watt tube amp to beat. Highly recommended for those working with budget constraints.
