I've purchased and sold way too many amps and guitars over the last 3 years. I've wasted a lot of time, looking, thinking, shipping, etc. Finally figured out what I like best (Marshall and Tweed) and have two amps on the way will cover everything I need and more. 1. Aiken Invader 18. Marshall tones (many of them), reverb, built-in attenuation, in a 1x12 combo package that weighs 43.5 pounds. EL84 based (my favorites). After everything I've tried I cannot think of a better combination of features. This should be the amp that NEVER goes unless I'm dead broke or quit playing. 2. Blankenship Fatboy w/ Sour Cream. 15" speaker. Runs on 6L6 (for 36 watts) or 6V6 for 22. Will provide more power when needed and nice blackface to tweedy tones. Also has reverb. I've got a Brake Lite waiting for it which should make it the perfect complement to the Aiken. I will be putting two amps and cabinets in the Emporium later. Please check. If anybody catches me buying another amp for over $400 dollars here in 2012 or 2013, call me on it and name your charity as I'm betting everyone $50 that this really will be it. Only question: what do I do with the time I used to use scouring ebay and the emporiums. I hope to go through the same exercise w/ guitars by the end of next week.
