I am going to vote for Rivera........total sleeper amp.
Peavey is also on the list.
i agree, good call, and for some reason david allen makes very underrated amps.i had a jake non reverb rivera,, must have been something negative about the ninja boost,, i have owned an allen brown sugar since 2005,, lil monster
Every Rivera amp I've heard has been fantastic !!
Unfortunately, it's the opposite with Peavey...
Oh well... variety makes the world go round...
Don't let everyone in on the secret!!
I've owned Rivera, it was pretty good... I had Egnater... decent. My Reinhardt was a cool amp, but nothing really wowed me, then I traded into a Dr Z EGZ 50 kinda by accident. I don't know if it's the 6L6's or just the simplicity of the design but it is head and shoulders above any othe amp I've ever owned.
I say Vox...nobody wants an actual Vox these past 5-10 years, it's all Hayseed, JIM, Morgan, Top hat, Dr Z, Bad Cat, etc.... Vox actually makes some decent amps nowadays.....just sayin'
VHT/Fryette. I can't believe how cheap you can pick up Fryette amps for and how hard they are to sell yet they are easily among the best amps out there.
Mesa, not much love for them on here and their imagine has been diluted ever since the recto thing took off. They really make some incredible amps and most guys just walk right by them assuming its a metal amp.
I think Morgan Amplification is a totally underrated brand. Sure, everyone likes to look at them, but there aren't that many dudes on here that own them.
I vote Divided by 13. They are just phenomenal in terms of their tone and harmonic content but people are always selling them because they buy too much amp
Vintage '60s Ampegs. No contest.
Everyone who has one seems to absolutely love it, but they're are just soo expensive!
Laney - One of the best for British tone but always deemed deeply unfashionable compared to Marshall and Orange.
I guess that's always been the way with London vs Birmingham though.
I suppose I'd also add that Matamp just kills it. Buddy of mine got a handwired custom 100w head for £1149. For the money nothing comes close in terms of what's available here in the UK.
LOL, mesa and vox are very far from being underrated.
Among blues and classic rock players mesa is I think.
Krank had a couple great amps. The Chadwick and the 1980 are great at that british sound and run $400-$700 used normally.
The Chadwick has an amazing clean channel and the 1980 is like a budget Splawn Quickrod
Vintage Traynor, although people seem to be catching on...
Old Gibson amps ie. ga-15-rvt, falcon and others from the 50's and 60's.
Thanks to Prince and his new Canadian guitarist.
vintage SANOS and Guilds.
