    This thread will be an interesting one to watch.
    I'm predicting around 80% of members here will use Vox and/or Fender amps.
    And then a splattering of a few other brands :)

    Fender Twin Reverb, Blues Jr. (the first version but modified to run cooler), Princeton Reverb 68 Custom and a Supersonic combo. To be honest, I think I find it easiest to get a sound I like with the Blues Jr.

    Mesa Express 5:25+. Great amp, but considering getting another amp that is 10 lbs lighter. [​IMG]

    Nice Henry but I'm a bit worried about your 5:25 - it's got a wicked lean on it :)

    Have you noticed how often a Joyo product pops up around here, usually a pedal but sometimes one of their little amps. Really a fine product regardless of the inexpensive nature of their products notice I didn't say cheap. Just an observation.

    Lol, yea it is kind of annoying but it is safe. The two arms are about 1/2 inch wider than the rubber feet on the amp, so it won't sit flat. A good reason to get a new amp! ;)

    I’d like to try more of their stuff. I love the Joyo Vintage Drive (the joyo tube screamer). I sold my genuine TS9, and kept the joyo. I liked it more than the real thing.

    Or a piece of plywood (in case the new amp has the same footer spacing). :D

    I've spent a lot of time before to find the right sound for my G5422. Now I'm really happy with a Fender Blues Jr tweed, Jensen standard speaker. I think the Blacktop Filtertrons sound really amazing through the Blues Jr. I think it's a matter of mix: the natural sound of the hollowbody with humbuckers (very hot and (imo) cool dark sound) and the bright character of the amp. I usually turn the master of BJ full open and just a little of gain... the sound is really rockin' and bluesin' ...

    Onstage my White Falcon goes through my Fender Hot Rod DeVille 410.
    In the rehearsal studio & some very small bar gigs I’ll use my Tweed Fender Blues Junior.
    Both these amps sound awesome!
