Twin RRI and a Playboy - don't need anything else for my home use.
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
I would love a Gretsch Playboy amp!
Boogie Subway Rocket
Guilty,,,,, although my Vox gets the least amount of play,,,, just not warming up to it like I thought I would
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.
Nice Henry but I'm a bit worried about your 5:25 - it's got a wicked lean on it
Liking this little rig a lot lately too.
Mostly a Tweed Blues Jr.
I'm a big fan of my Supro Tremo-Verb.
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).
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' ...
66 Princeton Reverb with mods for more headroom. 72 Bassman modded to blonde specs.
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!
