It appears from your responses that what you are actually looking for is a small solid state amp.

In that case the Henriksen is an obvious choice. Also Evans and Mambo.

The DV Mark Little Jazz combos are worth looking into - some guys prefer them over the Henriksen and they’re considerably cheaper. Depends on the sound you’re looking for.

Lots of guys like Quilter Amps but they are not specifically designed for jazz players, which may be an advantage or disadvantage depending on what you’re using it for.

All the jazz guys used to be into the Acoustic Image heads with Raezer’s Edge cabinets (often described while referencing Pat Martino), but those are less popular these days due to the advent of smaller, lighter options. Still highly respected though, and forum members always usually end their posts by saying, “it’s my best sounding amp but my new (put brand name here) amp is more convenient to carry.”

Raezer’s Edge has recently come out with their own amp head called the Luna. There’s a fair bit of talk about it on jazzguitar.be, but that’s a small solid state amp head similar in size to a Quilter, so you’d need a cabinet for it.
