I have been looking at reverb pedals as well--but this was too good a deal, and a small tube/hybrid amp is on my short list as well.
So I had to get it.

So what did I get?
It's an Orange Micro Dark amp head
This thing is tiny & weighs under 2 pounds.
1 tube--so it qualifies as a tube/hybrid--and it qualifies soundwise as well.
the growl you get from the gain, as well as a soft clean sound are nice and both suit my playing.
They sound particularly good with my Ibanez AF95 hollow body--but with other guitars as well.
I tried it at the store with the matching Orang amp cab--but also headphones--and it sounds real nice through my headphones.
i do have a former Fender Combo that is now just the speaker & cab that I got along with a footpedal (2 switches--one regular/normal and the other is a momentary one) and a small Fender sign for under $10--but I need to get the speaker wire & jack to be able to use it as a cab--and see if the speaker is any good. If not--well I'll buy a new one or get the orange cab.

So far it's still the initial "honeymoon" period.
but for a small amp to sue around home & stuff like that this one is quite nice
20 watts as well--this thing can get real loud.

I'll post pictures when I have my picture hosing site stuff worked out.
But it pretty much looks like this:

Congrats on the new amp Zontar. I'm one that isn't too crazy at all about the sound of the Orange amps for my needs. But if it works for you, great!

After thinking about it a bit, I'd be in for renting one of those little Orange Micro Darks (I'm not sure what I tried before in the store). Would prolly sound good with my Blackstar HTV212 that's been upgraded with a couple of Celestion V30's. If I get anything else I'd Opt for a different type of sound. Don't really know what to expect with a hybrrid like that. I'm used to the EL84 sounds of my 3 amps.
