    I bought this rig a long time ago for $200. The 2x10 Tremolux cab came with these Altec speakers that have sounded great with every amp I've tried.

    Sweet, I would love to add a Vibrolux to the pack. Until then, I suppose the DB210 gives a passable approximation.

    Here's my '77 Pro Reverb (45w, master volume, tube rectifier) that's been my main amp for almost 20 years now, and 1960 Gibsonette GA-8 that I picked up a couple of weeks ago.

    Ok, no-one's posted one yet so here's my 1964 AC 30 Head ...

    Sold it and bought the new AC30 HWH, which sounds as good, and runs much cooler

    4 of my amps are now reaching 25 and 30 years old. When do they qualify as "vintage"?
    To redeem the post, my 1970 Twin Reverb is in the mix. 20180228_194125.jpg

    Just one, a '72 Twin. Oh well, I suppose the Peavey is vintage now too :twisted: 2016-11-28 10.59.11.jpg 328108380.jpg

    Also...my '63-reissue Vibroverb is now 28 years old...my '62-reissue Stratocaster is 26 years old...my 1980 G&L F-100 is 38 years old...my main Telecaster is 23 years old...

    When do they earn the title of "vintage"?

    1968 Vibrolux Reverb. The last of the blackfaces. I think the JBLs are replacements. All else original. Clean and LOUD.

    And I guess this by what people call "vintage" these days:

    This is one of only 50 amps that Soldano made in "Clapton Grey". A lot of people think Clapton's pair were white, but they were actually grey. I'm guessing to match the pewter Strats that he plays. These are very hard to find and were only made in 1997.

    When I bought this one new I had no idea.

    In my eyes, anything more than 25 years old or so is a vintage amp, which would include most of my herd.
    But I'm sure most people are thinking pre-pcb, and of them, alot wouldn't consider vintage newer than 1978 or so.
    Oh well, I love my "old" amps!
