    If you had to pick only one amp to use and play for the rest of your life, combo or head and cab, what would you pick? I'll start...

    Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifier (newest, three channel/multi-watt version) on a Mesa/Boogie 4x12 Rectifier cab that has Vintage 30's (I'm a metal head, if you couldn't tell).

    5E3 Tweed Deluxe--Great cleans, and the Over Driven tone I've been searching for through pedals my whole life.

    A 5E7 bandmaster clone.

    Or perhaps a Vibro King.

    Fender Tweed Deluxe or Marshall JTM-45. I'd be fine with either.

    There's really a long list of amps I could be happy with the rest of my life. Doesn't mean I don't need the five I have...
