    I hooked a 6x9 car speaker to a 200 watt Kustom tuck and roll just to watch it burn. Wish I had a vid of that......

    Dr. Z Z28 on rare gigs when I could turn it up. The sound & response to attack & volume control made it so fun to play.

    Ever PLAYED, or ever OWNED?
    PLAYED - Friedman Runt 50 - just hitting power chords and staring at the cab as they rang out
    OWNED - Egnater M4 preamp rig - most versatile amp I've had, next to my JSX combo

    Mesa Boogie Tri-Axis into a couple rack effects then into a tube power amp. I could do no wrong. The most forgiving lead tone I ever played through. A wanker note did not sound very wanker-y. It was fun. I played 7#9 chords and solo'd like a madman.

    This! No matter where I put the Master, from whisper to blistering, it sounded amazing. Kick myself to this day for not buying one before Mike retired... used they were quite reasonable...

    Just about any P-90 guitar into a DRRI is about as fun as it gets without involving pedals or outboard gear. I wish it was up my alley as far as what I play.

    THD Univalve is a blast. I use an old sock to swap tubes on the fly; no burnt hand, no need to bias.

    There's a few;
    @FiestaRed 's Suhr PT100 when we cranked it out in my driveway,
    through one of my Boogie Recto 4x12s. Just magical.
    my Ampeg/Lee Jackson after @Achewood_Johnson fixed the "production
    issues". We dimed it just to see if we could blow it up. Instead, it
    sounded amazing.
    @Achewood_Johnson 's Super Reverb full roar with a TS-9 in front.
    Classic tone that rattled the rafters.

    Tele or LP Jr into a cranked Silvertone.

    Les Paul, Explorer or SG into a cranked 50w Marshall halfstack.

    Les Paul into a cranked AC30.

    I’m sensing a theme here: CRANKED

    I have a peavey audition 110 that o thought was broke and havent used since I was a kid and had no idea what to expect. So I figured I’d try it again to see what was wrong with it.. turns out nothing was wrong I was just young n stupid n thought it was broke for some reason lol. Before I pulled it out I seen someone selling the same amp for 20 bucks Canadian so I figured it was gonna sound like crap. Plugged the dame thing in and I couldn’t believe how good I had it sounding! I was litterly laughing from how surprised I was.

    This is how I feel about my Marks. Even fumbling sounds awesome when your tone is righteous. :cool:

    Modified 1989 Marshall JTM45 Reissue with NOS 70s Genalex KT-66s. It also made a good space heater... :D

    I tried a Roland Blues Cube Stage and was very impressed.
    I kept playing and smiling and couldn't believe how great this little SS amp sounded.
    I was definitely having fun.
    Hard to believe,but true.
