    I'm on a couple of other music forums, and I keep hearing about TGP, so I've finally taken the plunge.

    I play bass in a cover/original band here in Colorado and run a Peavey Classic 400 into an SWR Triad and off-brand 2x10 currently, but I'm in the market for an Ampeg 610 at some point. This amp punishes speakers like no other I've ever seen. :banana.

    I've been on a quest for tone over the last couple of years and though I've recently thinned out a silverface Bassman 50 and a Silverface Vibrochamp, I still have a few really cool ones I use on guitar:

    -1969 Sunn 200S (Two 6550's - great for bass practice amp and even better for guitar). This thing is awesome.

    -1960 C.F. Martin 110 combo (6 watt class A 6V6) - amazing. Savage has "cloned" this amp but it's not the same amp at all.

    -circa 1965 Alamo Galaxie piggyback with original 2x12 (two 7868's in the power section, about 20 watts with trem channel) - killer rock n' roll amp for smaller shows and practice. I put the original cab away and instead run the head through a closed-back lopoline 1x12 loaded with a Tone Tubby ceramic :RoCkIn

    -early 1960's Rob Roy Fantasy Bassmate (find me another one of those!). This is a two 6V6 head that's great for practicing bass or jamming on guitar. It's kind of dark sounding but breaks up awesome.

    Anyway, looking forward to getting to know you guys.

    Dave
