    Ok I'll bite....

    Either a Maven Peal "Ganesha" or a Komet "K60" I borrowed.

    Best, Pete.

    Komet Concorde for sure.

    BUT - A cranked JRT 9/15 sounds pretty thick and meaty too, but at a lower volume, which is why I bought it instead.

    I had a blonde showman on loan for a session ...it was IT !!! The same guy who loaned it to me was worried about it crackling and stuff on the session so he went in and changed a couple of caps .... guess what ?........It lost the mojo !

    But at least for a time when i was playing it ,,, it was the richest ,warmest ,punchiest most expressive amp i`ve ever played

    Oh Oh OHHHHH....totally forgot.

    Clean/Pushed clean: Vox AC-30 hand wired (2004). Unbeleavable sounding and incredibly dynamic.

    I played a Komet Concorde over the weekend and that had by far the meatiest lead tone I've every heard. Even more than the Komet 60 I owned for several years.

    Not in the same class as some others listed here, but my Budda definitely has the thickest, warmest lead tone of any amp I've played. Others I've tried have had good tones, but not thick like the Budda "milkshake" tone. Awesome with a Strat neck pickup!

    JCM 800 Model 1959 (non MV) full stack with the volume on 7.

    Unreal.

    If it went to 11 I don't even want to know about it.
