The only combo I have now is the Louis Electric KR12
Did you move on from the Bassbreaker 15?
2005 S2 Micro-Plexi (18 watt)
(S2 later on became Category 5 Amps)
I bought this amp last year and it has won me over big time!
I don’t know who built it but they did an exceptional job of wiring it up.
Plus, I love the sound of ‘50s RCA blackplates!
i did. great little amp, i was just looking for a different tone. the Bella is a stellar base tone and has the most beautiful spring reverb i've ever heard or played.
My 1x12 combo, is a Fender Pro Jr IV Tweed and Fender 1x12 ported cab, loaded Cannabis Rex, sensitivity 102 db, SPL 110-115 db, equivalent to 50W.
Fender cleans and cranks up Marshall mids. Loud enough with a drummer but can sound nice at low volumes. Plug straight in or great for pedals.
Using a 1x12 extension cab, eliminates combo speaker vibrations on the tubes, PCB, solder joints and speaker heat. This will extend the life cycle of PCB mounted tubes.
Essentially, a head and cab set up with the flexibility of a combo grab and go or add 1x12 cab option.
I've really enjoyed mine, but I'm getting ready to move on as well. Have some money incoming and plan to get a used Friedman Mini Dirty Shirley head and cab, though probably a full sized DS cab as I've heard complaints about the mini cabs.
I'd love to play a Bella, been intrigued ever since I saw @Husky recommend them after designing Clapton's 90's custom tweed amps. I need a master volume though, even at the 22 watt setting.

There’s no need at all for a master volume; there’s very little preamp gain and it’s linear volume; no jump like on Fenders.
It's a very smooth, even and warm-sounding amp. ZERO fender ice pick, even with the treble and presence way up. It's a rich canvas/palette for all manner of pedals.
Here's a quick little noodled iPhone clip of the rig pictured. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuqqilwIBV8LjRP3m58--p29qhYE
Very happy with my AC15HW1X
I've always been a 1x12 fan. The CARR Mercury V is my #1 right now.
I keep coming back to my `68 Bassman in a 1-12 combo cab w/ WGS ET-65. The Bass channel has been modded to the Allen Mod and the Normal Channel is Blackface. Sounds great at low volumes as well as high volumes. Takes pedals and my Helix (EFX-only) incredibly well and is relatively light at about 50lbs. Perfect club amp.

Ha! Yours is the younger cousin to my 1x15 '68 Bassman...also modded by Allen.
Big fan of 1x12s.
It's going to take a lot to get me to part with my JCM800 4010. It's a bit rough in the looks dept and has a G12M-70 in it (which doesn't get much love), but I love it.
I also have a Boss Katana 50 that's perfect for my P&W band gig, and a Blackstar Studio HT20 that I really liked until it crapped out on me. A friend who is a circuit board whiz has had it for about a year. Hopefully he can bring it back to life when he has the time.
I have not always been a fan, more recently it has shifted, I enjoy a great awesome 1x12 combo with huge big fat tones, these unfortunately are heavy like over 50 Lbs, which tells me that hanging onto my bigger rigs ain’t that bad after all. Today I own a bunch of 1x12 combos and I can see myself adding another, they are really cool little monsters if done correctly.
'55 5e3 Deluxe
The best 1x12 combo I've played, Bartel Roseland

Nice sneaking in of a LINE amp, lol. The positioning of your guitar's fretboard is too modest
My humble jcm900 mk3 100w. I’ve owned top end stuff but this is the amp for me. No frills, just good tones and light enough for a one hand lift.
