    Mine has to be my 59 Silvertone P238 head. Its one 6v6 powered with one 6u6 pre amp and a small rectifier....tone! tone !. It has it....I used to record the Hellcats last cd...and it is a monster in the studio...take pedals better than anything I own. Its a rare one for sure.

    My heavily modded twin. Feedback sustaining cleans, and distortion that'll make a JCM800 red in the face. So sensitive to player input you can leave the guitar's volume on '10' and go from clean to 'metal' with picking dynamics. Oh and it has tube reverb and trem. Hard to find something more fun than a responsive amp.

    A BF Deluxe Reverb for home.
    A BF Super for medium volume clean gigging.
    A BF Twin for “competitive” gigging. (loud bass, Guitar, pedal steel, etc.)
    Rock - 50/100 watt, first edition “simple” JCM800.
    If I used tube amps (I don’t), those are my favorites.

    my 80’s MKiii boogie. Was sounding just lovely warm and singing with a Strat in the studio just now. Push the input a bit on clean and it compresses perfectly.

    That said, an ‘79 JMP 50w Master Lead 2x12 is impressing me too and brings back all the memories of my first early JCM800. Great cleans too as well as instant classic rock noises.

    What else? The mighty Princeton Reverb RI!

    Or my boutique -- but inexpensive -- 10watt Wolff amp: 1 el34, 1 12ay7, Jensen Electric Lightning speaker. No tone knobs at all, just a volume knob and boost/bright switches which I tend to keep off.

    I do have a Fender Bassman '59 LTD that is my loud amp if I really need that much volume...

    Sorry, can't narrow the field to just one.

    I love my Fender Custom Shop 57 Deluxe.
    I love my Fender Custom Shop 57 Champ.
    I love my Princeton Reverb RI modded with Mercury iron and a Celestion G10 Gold.

    Oh, did I mention that I love Fender amps?

    ‘72 Twin Reverb. Since being recapped, it’s a blast to play. And I like it even better now that I was able to get rid of the popping sound from the standby switch.

    My Carr Mercury V 16watts of 6v6 power with reverb and attenuator built in.
    It sounds like a great old Marshall but cleans up nice too the reverb tops it off.
