    13287EC2-003E-48B4-BCCA-8D6D50704ECA.jpeg This is my main gigging amp now as I had to sell my beloved Tone Master Deluxe Reverb & Blues Junior.
    It’s a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe IV I got for a very good price a few months ago. Under a year old too! Sounds amazing!!
    I’ve always loved these Hot Rod amps by Fender… I’ve had a couple of DeVilles over the years..

    Hot Rods are one of my fav Fender amps - prefer them over Delux Reverb or Twin :)

    Yes I’ve always loved the Hot Rod series.
    This one sounds awesome in a live band situation, really cuts through!

    Express 5:50+ was the 1st Mesa amp I owned - an under-rated gem imo :)

    I couldn't agree more. My main amp for 12 years was a Twin. It took the 550 to get me to finally let go of it and I'm still as happy as I ever was.

    I’ve NEVER seen anywhere near that many pedals at my local GC!

    Those amps are no doubt feeling threatened, as they are so outnumbered by the pedals! ;)

    "Show me some amps," ye say?


    Here's the lot, as of ~1.5 year ago:


    Back (l-r): Crate BX 200/Ampeg SVT (200W 8x10), '67 Fender Super Reverb (40W 4x10, dual cabbed), '69 Kustom 100 (100W 1x15), Top: Marshall 5213 (100W 2x12) Bottom: Ampeg Reverberocket 212R (50W 2x12), Top: '60s Sunn 200s (40W) Bottom: DIY 2x12 Celestion cab; '70s Woodson 250 (250W 1x15), Top: Cigarbox Homebuilt (0.5 W) Middle: Sovtek MiG 50H Tube Midget (50W) Bottom: Risson cab (4x12).

    Front (l-r): Kustom Tube 12A (1x8), Marshall 5275 (75W 1x12), Peavey Triple XXX Super 40EXP (40W 1x12), Vox AD30VT-XL (30W 1x12), Marshall 5210 (50W 1x12), MosValve MV-962 (80W 1x12), Laney TF100 (50w 1x10), Marshall 5002 (20W 1x10), Fender Super Champ XD (15W 1x10).

    Since it's been 18 months, there are a few changes from above. The big Marshall 5213 (100W 2x12 combo, center, top, back row) was sold, and replaced by a DSL 40C (with a Celestion G12H 75 Creamback speaker change). Here is the DSL 40C with the Ampeg R212R Reverberocket (50W 2x12):


    After acquiring the DSL, I also got a Vox AC30.


    And just today I got my first-ever Marshall cab, a model 1510. It's a flat-front bass cab with four 10" speakers, but works great for bass or guitar!
