scumback loaded DRRI
Sounds like you're the guy I need to talk to. I've been considering a Supersonic 60 and I've been wondering what the tonal difference are between it and the 22. I'm interested in a head but the 22 heads just go for way more $$ than the 60s. I'm an "edge of breakup" blues player and on paper it looks like either would do the job. But the lower prices for the 60 has me a little bit hesitant. (Obviously no local examples to try).
Dr Z Maz 18 Reverb. 1999 vintage updated to Mark 2, which made all the difference. Wasn't thrilled at first. Upgrade changed that.
Biggest problem is deciding where to set it. Blackface? Vox? Marshall? It can do a good version of each.
Went years through half stacks, then downsized to my trusty Classic 30. Had this about 12yrs now, god knows how old it is.
And after years of also hiding behind pedals I'm loving now just plugging in direct, just a cheeky slapback in the loop.
I own or have owned a few one 12” combos.
1973 Deluxe Reverb
1999-2000 Korg era made in Britain AC15
1978 Music Man RD65
Quilter Aviator 12
Peavey Special 130
I now have a Boogie Mark V 25 head with a one 12” open back cab
And a Roland JC40 with two 10”
My only recent deviations from combo 12s.
The Boogie rig is just an easier move than a combo.
About a year ago I decided to buy a moderately priced 1x12 combo that would be 'the amp', enabling me to use it for pretty much anything and allow me to sell my other pricey amps. To accomplish the goal, I got an Alessandro Rottweiler, which I'd owned twice before. 40 watts, under 36 pounds with a neo speaker, under $1K used (making it a great deal on a used amp), built in attenuator to get down to 20 watts, super build quality, a workable reverb, and sounds really good. The Rotty does satisfy the criteria, and I still own it and like it, I didn't sell the other stuff. The Alessandro resides at my drummer's house where we practice weekly and is a pleasure to play.
Here are two and a 12" cab with a JTM1H.
This lil guy will bring the rock (Germino Club 40 with a Scumback J75-PVC)
ha, someone one this site once described moving these as "like lifting a black hole". Buddy of mine joking said that the magnets on those EVM12L's will bend space-time.
TopHat SuperDeluxe mk2
And yes, the light is purple.
One of two combos. The other is a Mark V. The one pictured is a Mark III combo Purple Stripe with EV. I run it with a Mesa 5 band EQ in the loop and it sounds fantastic. The lead tones are amazing! I have heads from other builders that I run through a "bigger" cabinet, and they don't deliver like this bad boy.

Got a couple of them,, the Ampeg Gemini I is a great amp in its own right, kinda/sorta like a DR, but with a warmer and less "in your face" sound.
Now, this ain't TGP approved , but the Blackheart LG is one mean/raw machine,, with NOS glass and a JBL K-120 it's a little beast,, and quite heavy.
Oh, I removed the stupid logo, now the peeps say "sounds great,, what kind of amp is it?"
That looks awesome! Is that his normal size combo cabinet? Looks really small and compact.. has me thinking
It’s actually a Mather. Greg was outta stock at the time I got this one. It conveniently available in the Emporium. Same size as the the Germino, only 1/2” less deep.
Crate 1 20w (R) Crate Kicker 60w Slave amp (L) my first two amps
After an Ampeg Gemini, Marshall Artist, Seymour Duncan Convertible, Laney LC50, I've upgraded to two Fender Pro Jrs. 10" speakers are just better for guitar.
