    Just wondering what's out there. I love 6v6 amps right now. What are some unknown tone machines?

    Ampeg Reverberocket. Fairly well-known, but definitely under-appreciated.

    There's a lot of GREAT 6v6 amps out there. But underated makes me think of the Blues Deluxe. For the price used ($400) it sounds pretty good.

    Hopefully, a Savage Macht6. I've got one on the way, and have seen very little talk or clips of this amp (or any Savage's for the most part)

    cheers

    Honestly, if I had to play through a Deluxe Reverb for the rest of my life, I'd be fine. Everybody raves about it, but even that's not enough...

    The Savage Macht 6 is a killer little 6V6 amp, with beautiful a Trem, and 4 knobs total (Vol, Tone, Depth, Rate). I see them sell for around $750 used.

    Absolutely love my Macht 12x. So much in fact, I got another 12 inch extension cab with a gold in it, and am waiting for my Macht 24 head to set on top of it.

    Clean and MEAN. Trem is killer
