This is a cheap little 5W chinese head I picked up in 2018. It was $99 shipped! The seller was even nice enough to send me the factory schematic on request. :D (attached)

Here's the specs:
• 5 watts via 1x EL84 and 1x 12AX7 (Chinese tubes, of course)
• Treble, Bass, and Volume controls
• 1W and 0.1W attenuation modes (slide switches on rear)
• 8 and 16 ohm outputs

Not a crazy complex amp, but definitely not just another Valve Jr variant. It's definitely worth $99 at the very least.
