..... that you've experienced so far?
... and do you currently own that amp?
Komet Hybrid (K60 pre/Concorde pwr), Komet 19 (close 2nd)
Still own them
Mesa Mark IIC+ (I don't get out much...)
Dr. Tweedbucket - 6500RPM redline implies you are a big-block guy? I used to drag race big block Mopars.....
My 1970 marshall 50 watt head and boogie mk ii c+ are the two best and after dozens of others I'm down to just those two now. Can't see either going anywhere.
I got my first V4 ~35 years ago, now on my second one. It does everything I want/need, I love it.
Either my Marsh 5e3 or my 75 Fender Vibrolux Reverb. Total opposites but both amazing. Lost the VR in a bad trade but still have the 5e3.
My '59 Deluxe is the standard by which I gauge all others.
I had a head cab built and my favorite cab is a Marshall 1966A with a G75t and a Greenback.
Straight in, tone on 12, the other 2 volumes vary with guitars.
Hands down, by a long mile........Rivera Knucklehead 55.
Totally regret letting go of it.
I had a burgundy tolex Carr Slant 6V (early one) for a few days-returned it to the seller for what was most likely a minor tube issue from shipping. I bought a 6V head some years later hoping to get that tone again and realized how special that first one was. If I could track that burgundy 6V down, I'd buy it back in a heartbeat.
Happened again a year later when I bought a 65 Deluxe Reverb off e-bay that kept blowing fuses-probably a tube problem from shipping again. Both of these amps had that something special that brought out some tones that I have not been able to get from other amps.
My Heritage Kenny Burrell:
It's 45W of clean power (it barely distorts at all), but it sounds as good with the volume on 2 as on 10. Warm, jazzy tone with controls that don't make a huge difference but adjust to individual guitars, and lush reverb that hangs back and doesn't take away from the clean signal. Equally good for lap steel. Plus, at $750 used, it's the best value-for-money I've ever spent on gear.
My Fargen miniplex mki... but I have never played another plexi clone or a real one
i like it better than univalve bivalve shiva mesa soldano jubilee engl vht... i've played/owned some great amps but i'm certain i'm a plexi guy
1964 Princeton Reverb - Great studio amp, great practice amp, great small gig amp.
Princeton Reverb II.
Two Rock TS1 hand built for me in 2010 by Bill Krinnard pre-PBG.
Still have it.
It would be good to know the guitar and music style too since amp name alone doesn't tell the whole story.
Kind of just depends what I'm in the mood for, but I've yet to get a bad sound out of my 335 fatneck in to a fairly cranked blackface Super Reverb w/ the old alnicos. It's a sound you just get lost in.
that's easy, the answer is the next one I buy
seriously, don't our needs and preferences change over the years... a Suhr Badger 30 is what I have now, they are incredible amps, amazing amps for the $$$ and versatile enough for my different gigs... I'm very happy
Mesa Lonestar Special that I actually bought from you.......
Hiwatt DR103 / Marshall superlead 100W ... I don't have to rev them past 6500rpm .... (I'm a big block Chevy guy)
Still have it! Thats cool! I still have my second one too, I love it!
