    Amp for mini stack?

    Get 2 Vox MV50. Use one with each cabinet. Split your signal with a stereo tremolo/chorus/flanger/delay or an A/B/Y box. Total outlay <$500

    Anyone buy any supro pedal recently?

    Too many? They stopped making the 1x15" combo. I only saw 6 amps on their website, head/combo non/reverb differences excluded. What are you confused by?

    I don't understand used prices in the current market...

    Anyone buy any supro pedal recently?

    @mretrain99 I can't find any schematics for the new Supros but yes, I'd say that your experience of subtle, shallow, underwhelming tremolo sounds like a tube bias-vary tremolo where the tubes whose bias is being varied (Vibro-Champs et al. vary a 12AX7's bias, Princeton Reverbs et al. vary the...

    "Perfect" gigging amp

    Fender Blues Deluxe/Hot Rod Deluxe Peavey Classic 30/50 Quilter Aviator/101 Marshall DSL40/Origin 50 All got multiple mentions. If I had to go on the road with 3 other guys in one vehicle, I'd get a pedal-sized Quilter (SuperBlock?) and put it on my pedalboard. Then an EV TL606 if I could get...

    Gain control? Expression pedal control? A line transformer?

    one amp, two instruments? (guitar and bass)

    The Precision Bass is kind of the Telecaster of the bass guitar. https://houston.craigslist.org/msg/d/houston-squier-bass/7482166199.html If this has a straight neck and functional electronics, you could do much worse. Looks like you've got a couple choices, actually...

    Bored with my Excelsior Pro time to go

    For what it's worth it looks like the Pro came in "Sonic Blue" AND "Surf Green" (SB second from left, SG second from right) I'd agree that @Red Ryder 's is Sonic Blue.

    one amp, two instruments? (guitar and bass)

    GK make pretty well regarded bass amps. Maybe see if you can get that guy to take a little less? But I wouldn't feel like I got ripped off for $150 if all the controls work and the amp is in good shape, doesn't buzz or hum too loud etc. This GK amp is like Fender combo amps in the sense that...

    one amp, two instruments? (guitar and bass)

    In no way would I ever suggest that $75 isn't real money, because I've been there, and if I'm being extremely honest with myself, I probably am still there. But the cool thing about $75 Peaveys is that you can almost certainly move them on again for $75.

    If the Fender extension speaker cabinet isn't closed-back, don't bother putting a different speaker in it. Open backed cabinets do not work for bass. If you can find a Vox MV50 amp, those sound beautiful for a hundred and change (I just bought one for $130). That amp + the Fender ext. cab with...

    one amp, two instruments? (guitar and bass)

    What's the current guitar amp? Consider a closed-back or ported speaker cabinet if it doesn't already have one. Playing bass through an open-backed combo amp sounds bad and will destroy the speaker. Plenty of guitar amps can work for bass, but they need to be paired with a speaker cabinet...

    Peavey TKO 115 should be about a hundred bucks on Craigslist. You can also look for a Peavey KB300 for bass, it'll definitely get the job done. https://houston.craigslist.org/msg/d/kingwood-bass-amp-used-peavey-tko-obo/7483612953.html
