    Blackface Princeton Reverb.

    *More accurately: AA1164 circuit with a good well-broken-in 12" speaker.

    Maaaannnn....I'm a very lucky guy with 4 tweed amps...one for just about any situation I'll find myself in.
    But the 58 5f6a Bassman gives me wood everytime I plug in.
    You know that woody tone, right?

    Since my Garnet Revolution II is currently my only tube amp, I guess that's it. ...and it is a pretty good amp, although my Katana 50 gets a lot more play. Of all the tube amps I've owned over the years, my favorite was the '57 Twin Amp I had years ago.

    72' marshall bass 50 watter with a full stack. Extremely impractical frankly for anything except having a fantastic time. Family was out last night and cranked her full out, what a sound, what an experience. A 4x12 just sounds really good. Have a lot of other amps but this is most fun.

    '61 Gibson Falcon GA19RVT, gorgeous cleans with lush reverb and swampy vibrato, crank it through an external cab and it sounds great too, original Jensen C12R compresses beautifuly at lower volumes but can't handle anything over half on the volume control.

    I'm so in love with my modified BF Pro Reverb someone will be extremely lucky if I don't have it attached to the end of my casket in its road case.

    I don't think it's a question of favorite, maybe it is. But for tube amps it's something in the 40 watt neighborhood . I had been using Twins for 4 decades , which I believe to be the best tube combo amp ever made, but the last few years I have been using a 40 watt Fender HR Deluxe and now a Blues Deluxe . For my gigs and tastes they are a match. very consistent.

    Yep I've got a 59 GA77 wonderful amp. At 25 watts into a single 15" it's too much for most gigs so my 1959 GA8 8 water gets used most - dual single ended A class. It's brilliant at the sweet spot that just right volume for bar gigs. I love tweed Gibson amps so ive got a 1960 GA18T at 14 watts for slightly bigger gigs and a 4 watt GA5 from 1956 for home use.:D
