    I think I'm just about perfectly set up with my three right now.

    1) I'm plexi fixated so my 68 50 watter covers that.

    2) My 63 AC30 is just the most incredible amp.

    3) My ultra light 20 watt Soldano Atomic 16 is the perfect grab and go amp for making some pretty heavy sounds.


    I'm covered. :YinYang

    a great player named Bobby Boykin said to me once:

    All you need is a Vox AC30, A BF Deluxe, and a Marshall 50w - a Hot Plate to match and you can make every sound you need if you want to make these kinda choices.

    The three that I currently own (and the only ones I have for now if you don't count my MicroCube!):

    No 1. Sommatone Roaring 40 (this could be the ONLY one I own and I would be happy)
    This amp does excellent tones at club volumes, has a PERFECT Master Volume that works, can be gigged without pedals and get a wide range of tones, and has a 1/2 power mode (20 watts) that makes it uber-flexible)

    No 2. PTP Tweed Bassman (a kit converted early RI)
    These amps are the classic american blues and rock and roll amps. Sounds good on "2", sounds great on "4" and sounds heavenly on "7". Loves pedals, those four 10" emi-blue frames fill a room and get into your soul.

    No 3. Deluxe Reverb Reissue
    22 watts, perfect for small clubs and rehearsals. Loud enough to hang, but won't get you arrested even if maxed out. Great Reverb and trem, and costs next-to-nothing used. It's that blade on the swiss army knife that you never thought about until you had it, but now it's always the blade you seem to use.
