I play pop, rock, country & blues (when I can) with a Heritage 535.

My favorite amp is a Fargen BB40. I'm still happy with any BF type of amp.

wreck express, blonde bassman 6g6b, plexis (100w and 1987 with the later lead specs - the earlier 50watters (and the jtm45) are too muddy with a 335). also, the bigger blackface amps are great.

I like 335s for blues and classic rock. also a little jazz and funk. not really country, rockabilly or metal

I built a Ceriatone OTS which is modeled after a Dumble Overdrive Special. I like it the best.

335 straight into a Divided By 13 FTR 37 is godlike.

Second place for me would be pretty much any dumble style amp. Very nice tones.

Of the amps I own, the Glaswerks and vintage Super Reverb and Vibrolux Reverb (w/JBLS) sound incredible with a 335.

I just got the speaker cab that's been on order for awhile:


It's a Weber California Ceramic 15 in one of their large cabinets.

I previously used it with a Blues Jr NOS:

It sounds good through both (335s sound good through almost anything!). I play blues, folkie pop, rock, r&b.

A 335 sounds good through pretty much any amp. I'm a rocker. It does wonderful classic rock tones.

I'll second that. I've been playing 335's for many years, in many different styles and genres, and I've never felt there was any type or brand of amp that was badly suited to the guitar.

Matching the amp to a style of music is entirely different.
