Do you have a willingness to solder and a desire to acquire a new hobby? I would say build yourself a practice amp. A tweed Champ or Princeton would be a great place to start. You can get some pretty gnarly tones at reasonable volumes, but still loud enough to at least be fun. Weber has very reasonably priced kits. The next time I build an amp, I'm thinking I might go with a Tweed Vibrolux. Weber doesn't make a 5F11, but Mojo does, although the $850 price seems a little steep to me for what it is.
