I have a Top Hat Supreme 16...and i like it alot...what other EF 86 amps are recommended?
I have a Matchless Nighthawk 1x12 combo. Incredible amp in every way!
Early 60's vox -AC15
AC15 came to my mind too. Don't know the circuit that well, though I have the parts laying around to eventually build one one of these days. Seems to me the rumor mill has it that they're finicky circuits. Anybody got solid info one way or the other?
Genz Benz Black Pearl. My favorite amp, period.
65Amps has a few good ones too - I had a London that was top flight.
I was going to say Tophat supreme 16 right off the bat
Vox AC30 Heritage ... it has both the EF86 and 12AX7 side.
Dr. Z has a couple .... Prescription ES is one
Matchless DC30 best overall amp ever.
is that an EF 86?
Dr Z KT45 ...
No doubt about it...Magic Amps Brit TB86 w/pro mods!
Valvetech Hayseed 30
Not a fan of "best ever" threads, but the Magic Brit with the latest updates is a pretty exciting.
Try yours with a Maxon SD-9! Serious perfect match for the Brit.
Very finicky, microphonic feedback, they don't last long. You really need the right kind of sleeve to minimize rattles and squeals but they're worth it.
