    I've got a bunch of amplifiers, but my favorites are my '59 Bassman Reissue, VOX ac15 with 12" Alnico Blue, and my Prosonic head with 2X12" Celestion 30s. Here are a few pics...

    The bass amp above on the left is a Hartke LH500 sitting on top of two Avatar Cabs, a 2X10" with Neos and a 1X15". In the middle is my '59 Bassman Reissue sitting on a VOX AC15 stand, and my '63 Fender Reverb Unit Reissue topping it off..

    On the left is my Custom Vibrasonic Amp in purple levant tolex with a matching 15" cab; in the center is my VOX New Guardsman from Gary at North Coast Music, and on the right is my '63 Vibroverb Reissue with matching 15" cab (both with Weber California speakers).

    I’m have 2 guitar amps.
    My tube amp is a custom hand wired Arkham built locally.
    F2EE417A-C6E6-4275-841D-CA253FBCDA29.jpeg
    It was built using the cabinet and the power transistor from a Fender 68 Custom deluxe reverb reissue that I had grown tired and frustrated with.
    It has an awesome vintage style reverb tank and bias style swampy tremolo.
    Best of all, it doesn’t make weird clicking noises and hisses.

    The new hand wired board (above)

    Stock fender PCB board (below)

    My other amp is a Fender Tone Master Deluxe Reverb. It’s a really cool amp! I prefer playing through glass filled with fire, but for a digital amp, it’s incredible.
    My only gripe is that it doesn’t handle Fuzz like my tube amp. There’s always a volume drop, where there isn’t a drop when I plug the same rig into my tube amp. It almost sounds like the computer is confused by it.

    Darth Fender,,, not your Grandaddys' Fender.

    BassBreaker 45 212. '59 Bassman circuitry, 3 x 12AX7's, 2 EL34's, solid state rectifier, 2 140w 12" Celestion® G12V-70's. Late 50's meets 21st century.

    A poke in the eye at Marshalls for "borrowing" the original. Another unique feature that it has a "both" input, so you don't need a jumper to run normal & bright channels. Get both those pre-amps cookin' & this thing has a growl all its' own. Super versatile. Dangerous at volume and anyone that says you can't do bedroom levels w/ it is doing it wrong. :cool:

    Harp Gear HG30. 1st one ever made by Brian Purdy of Harp Gear Amplification. 2 x 8" Webers. A loud 30w w/ great harp tone. Originally sold to Charlie Musselwhite & was his touring amp for a few yrs. I'm the 2nd owner.
