The more I play the more I realize that I already have great electric guitars thatjust about meet all my needs - and nearly all of my wants. One mod to one guitar and I'll be done with them for a while. But also the more I play, the more I realize that I want to own a couple / few classic tube amps. I have been on the "tube fence" for a long time - I have owned a variety of amps, of different kinds. There are some good SS amps, and I have owned TWO Katanas, so don't get me started there. None of them that I have owned and played, if I'm being really honest, have sounded as nice as a simple cranked DRRI. I will probably keep my Roland Blues Cube but it's time for me to step up and get old-fashioned. I'm an occasional bar gigger, no more no less. A 112 combo is really all I will ever need, and even though part of me is tempted to just dive into the future and go for a Helix, whatever, for that $ I could get a couple of classic style tube amps that would be all the tones I would ever want from a Helix anyhow. I basically have always had a couple of sounds in my head: A Vox tone from fairly clean to a bit crunchy. The other one is (of course) a clean-ish Fender tone, but maybe not sparkly clean. Deluxe to Vibrolux is probably where I'm at there. With those two sounds (Vox and blackface), and POSSIBLY a big-bottle Tweed amp like a 5e5-a, I think I would be good to go, would never need a firmward update, no USB cables in my gig bag, etc. I have no need or desire for more gain than, for instance, an AC15 can provide stock. I've narrowed the possibilities down to several (on the used market; I'm quite the cheapskate). If people have owned the '68 Custom Deluxe RI amp, how does it compare to the regular DRRI? And does the "revoiced" normal channel really sound like a Bassman? I thought that seemed like quite a claim to make. I doubt I will get a chance to play before buying. Another possibility is one of the Super-Sonic series. They are supposed to have BF and Tweed tones available from the normal channel - do they really do a convincing job of it? Third possibility is to start the journey with another Ceriatone - maybe one of their Matchless clones or their 5e8-a or 5e5-a clone. I can make my own cab and I am very happy with the Champ they made me. As you can see, I'm all over the place. I figure to spend between $500 and 1000 for each of the two / three amps I'm looking for. A piece of me does wonder if an old Hot Rod Deluxe and a beat up AC15 @$350 each would satisfy me....Anything you can see that I'm missing?
