I'm looking for a 1x15 combo. Are there any i should check out? I'm already aware of the Fender Twin custom 15 and the Ampeg Gemini's...any others? I plan to use it for nice big full frequency cleans. Thanks.

I think Sewell had a 1x15 texaplex at one time. The Fender Vibroverb reissue is pretty awesome, just a little out of my price range. Didn't Lindy Fralin also make a 1x15 combo? I love 15's and the Peavey Delta Blues is a pretty cool amp too, I had one recently and dug it, just wanted to get something with 6v6's.

If you can find a Sewell Wampus Cat, that would work. Mine now has a fixed/cathode bias switch, always stays on fixed. Tried so many tubes, speakers. Right now, with 7581A power, I forget what in the pre, Big Ben speaker, this amp is the Old Reliable of tone. Fine amp.

I had my VVT Fralin up for sale a few months ago. Glad I didn't sell it. The old-style Weber Alnico 15" is finally breaking in and the amp sounds unreal (they now use an Eminence Legend ceramic)! I have RCA 6L6's in it. The best amp I have ever used in 35 years of playing for a Telecaster.

I use Pop's old Ampeg B-15 but they are getting harder to find and costing more. The last new 15 combo I saw was the Fender RI Twin.

Maybe try a head and a seperate cab? Dunno of any 1x15 cabs off hand.

I have a Carr Rambler 15 that I absolutely love! I'm sure he would still make one but it has a HUGE and woody tone that I just love.

I ordered a Weber 1x15 cab (the larger model) with a California Ceramic 15 in it a year and a half ago. Sweet top end, robust mids, lots of bottom. I run it with a Bandmaster VM but when I'm feeling frisky I hook my DRRI to it. I'd love to have the DRRI head in a 1x15 cab.

Mesa also offered a 1x15 combo option on the Mk II. Big clean headroom there.

So, do you think they like 15" speakers much? :p

There's a s**t-ton more choices, but you gotta snoop around.

And my friend's Victoria Trem de la Trem. And the Gibson GA-77 I wanted so bad to trade for.

I recently bought a 1960 Gibson GA80. 25 watts thru a Jensen 15. Great but hard to find. I also have an Allen Brown Sugar with a 15" Weber Neo Mag JBL clone. With a lower gain preamp tube or two it's an awesome Fender sound but capable of more mids and more gain. I used one of Twin Custom 15 amps in a local club's backline a few years ago. A really nice amp. For all around use I would use the Allen. BTW: It came with a Weber Jensen clone, the JBL clone sounds much better.

My recommendation is to find a nice 60s Ampeg Gemini II. More headroom than the Gemini I, 15" speaker, fantastic reverb and trem. Probably has my favorite clean tone! Got mine used last year for around $350.
