    Over the years I bought and sold many many different brand and model of amps. Maybe 30 amps in the past 3 years. And about 8 of them were Swarts!!!

    There are sooo many other great amps I want to try such as:
    Matchless, Vintage Sound, Suhr, Budda, Tophat, Magic, 65 amps, Victoria, etc etc.

    I could have very well have given these a try and I do...but ratio of Swart purchase to these other brands are like 4 to 1.

    Oh why oh why Swart!!!??? I tell my self! Ocean is large! Give others a fair shot.

    Any of you guys go thru similar thing with other brands?

    Marshalls. Especially non-master ones.

    Had 4 Buddas - 2 were Twinmasters, one a VerbMaster, one a Superdrive. Will have another Twin/VerbMaster one day.

    Had 6 Komets (2 Constellations, 2 60's, 2 protos.) Still have a proto and a Constellations. Probably never sell either of them.

    As much as I LOVE boutique AC30 sounds, I keep getting Mesa Dual Rectifiers! More exact, I've had 4 Tremoverbs over the past 6 years (not to mention the many other Rectifiers I've had).

    I wish I could find an amp with the Hayseed sounds on one side and the Dual Rectifier "vintage" mode on the other.

    I keep coming back to mesa's rectifier series. I currently have a rectoverb. Definitely my favorite sounding amps. Every time I get rid of one I know I'll end up with another at some point.

    I haven't owned an awful lot of amps over the years, but six of them have been Fenders. And of those six, two were Super Reverbs! :bonk

    I have bought and sold 3 Orange Tiny Terrors. Now I have a Dual Terror and it would take a pack of wild ninjas to steal it from me.

    Ninjas travel in packs? In the wild? :)

    Too many Riveras. They were the right amp for me at one time and just aren't anymore. I guess I hear things differently than I used to. I probably wouldn't get another.

    I thought I was done when I bought a Naylor, until I bought A Germino. Man the C45, what a killer amp!

    JCM800's. I've owned a bunch of them and never liked em. :rotflmao. I keep buying them every few years thinking I will eventually like one since I like how other people sound using them. That day will never come. ;)
