The speaker impedance and wattage makes a difference. I like the EHX 44 Magnum class D pedal/amp. It works with 8 and 16 ohm speakers. I use 50 watt or higher speakers so I don't risk blowing it. ----------

Thanks for your feedback. No pun intended. I picked up a used Quilter Micro Block 45. Using it with an American Sound Joyo pedal. I'm getting very serviceable tone for very little $$ considering the speaker cab was free to me. Pleasantly surprised!
This came to be after putting a Masco MA25 project on hold. Got it for next to nothing, put some money in it. Discovered It's a feedback monster and has now developed a hum. Stepping away for the moment but still want to use the speaker as it has some serious mojo. Live and learn, I suppose.
Sounds like you have a good sounding inexpensive amp setup that will do the job!
I have read good reviews of the Quilter Microblock 45. It wasn't out yet at the time I bought the 44 Magnum, and the EHX amp does a fine job for me. The Joyo American Sound is a good pedal, too! Your setup should get the job done.
Though I love the sound of tube amps, at a Hill Country Harmonica Billy Branch played through a solid state Peavey and sounded great.
Tube amps are my preference for gigs, but are more prone to trouble when hauled around. The right solid state amp properly adjusted is a viable choice. ----------
