We all know there are many amps based on Marshall of Fender circuits for example. Can you name some amps that have their own sound (don't sound Marsally, Voxy, Fendery etc)

My Pignose sounds pretty unique and cool :)

I think my FTR 37 has a unique tone, it has Fender and Marshall qualities, but it still sounds like no other amp i've tried.

Magnatone, nothing else sounds like one. Particularly the "True Pitch Shifting Vibrato"

Maybe not unique but I love the sound of old seventies musicmans - the ones with inbuilt phaser.

I have a '61 Sonola 66-J which is a rebranded Guild amp. Great tone 2 x 6V6. It does not sound like a Tweed Deluxe.

Am I going to be the first one to say it?

Dumble.

Mesa Boogies are also pretty distinctive.

I haven't played any TW, original or clone, but they sound like a bland between the Vox "prettyness" and the gain and muscle of a Marshall.

My old Peavey Heritage. Unique is one word to describe it!! Heavy as hell would be another. This thread got me thinking, I don't really know what that one sounds like, but it's unique.

Phaez's Daisycutter is pretty unique. It gets described as "marshally" but it's not really. It's just the closest comparison. Haven't heard it in person, but from accounts and clips, his Dragonfly seems quite distinctive too.

Not many new amps being made that aren't either clones, or tweaked clones. Nothing against clones, but it is kinda cool when you find something original.

I've played a clone (the Vox Night Train is, in fact, a Trainwreck clone...if more people knew about it they would be far less underrated) and that's exactly what it is. It has all the chime, picking response, and natural (not "forced") sound of a good Vox with all the punch and sizzle of a Marshall.
