    I'm just wondering about anything else beside the Victoria Regal II I should be thinking of--
    I think that amp sounds great, but I'll never be able to play one before I'd buy...
    any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Peavey Delta Blues 15 is a great amp.

    I have the Victoria Regal II, and love it. The tube swapping allows you to tailor the breakup point for different size venues. And the different tube combinatins give you many different tonal flavors at your fingertips. The Victoria site has many Regal soundclips. I play a strat and a Gibson ES137P with P90's, both sound great, especially the P90's, amazing. Plus, great onboard trem/verb, and just under 50 lb's. Bill

    No affiliation but there is a sweet looking Gomez G verb for sale in the emporium. There are supposed to be pretty nice but the Regal II's ability to swap tubes is nice.

    +1 for the Gemini II.

    I've had mine since "66"
    Best verb ever!

    I play a Heritage Prospect with P-92s, a Tele, a Strat, a Jazzmaster and a Heritage Sweet 16 through my Regal and agree wholeheartedly with the quote above. It's an incredible amp.

    Also, a 1964 blackface Fender Vibroverb isn't too shabby:BEER

    I'm playing two at the moment, and would love to get number 3. Number one is the Sewell Wampus Cat. About which I have raved repeatedly in these forums. I bought it without even seeing a Sewell amp, just had a feeling this one would work for me. And it surely does. Sorta tweed pro. but not completely. It's become my favorite amp.

    The other is a rather worn Ampeg Gemini II with bigger PT, a tube rectifer (quite untypical) and 6L6s. Still playing speaker games with it. Shows great promise, something not tweed, not blackface, just it's own thing. Big tone in this one.

    The other 15" combo I'd love to have would be the Victoria Victorilux, with the Legend 151 and 6L6s. I've played one several times at rehearsal. Love how it drives high up.

    i LOVE the sound of the '64 vibroverb CS reissue. Very sweet, soft and organic. It makes your guitar sing without distorting or compressing your tone.

    + 1 on the Delta Blues. Pretty tough to beat it for the money and you can spend the extra cash experimenting with different speakers.
