I'll start. Hilgen.
Jamison 212 combo
you got me there.
Any of the Cornford line..go to their site and watch/listen to the videos/samples.
Traynor Bass amp:
Function Amps Supro/Trainwreck mashup.
A very good place to start.
Metaltronix...Obscure now, but moderately big in its day
I had a crappy little 60s Multivox that somehow turned into a Plexi at around 6 on the volume. It was a single-ended el84 with a 12". Maybe 8 watts. The baffle board and speaker disintegrated more or less simultaneously so it got a Greenback and a solid pine board. Awesome little recording amp.
Lately I've been getting into ancient PA heads. I've got a Stromberg Carlson Signet 33 with absolutely wicked Bassman-like power tube distortion. Tone controls could be better set up for guitar, but it's got tons of potential. It's also the least noisy tube amp I have ever heard.
Ditto, except mine is a 1x12.
Traynor YBA-1 BassMaster
I'm still digging my Overbuilt Fiscus. I think there were only seven built.
I'm really enjoying this not at all stock Garnet Lil Rock. Has big transformers and a tube rectifier now, so I experimented last week with 6L6s (stock setup is two 6v6, solid state rectified.) Success! Very cool little amp:
I'd never even seen a Garnet before this one.
Most obscure and best sounding amp of them all - a Dumble. No one outside of TGP has heard of them.
