    The small/mid fender tweeds/clones take the cake for me.

    5E3 and deluxe reverb for me...in fact, they’re the only amps in the house anymore.

    Drri

    Traded in my 68 cpr. Very happy.

    Both good amps. Cpr needs mods though imo. Drri is great the way it is.

    5E3 and Princeton Reverb - opposite ends of the scale, one is raunchy, squishy, raw, the other is clear, bright and pretty - love them both!

    I really like my Supro Blues King 10 (5w)...but I am thinking about changing away from the factory tubes. I also have a VHT Ultra 6 head that I like, however, this week I replaced the 6V6 with a 6L6 (just to hear it) and changed V1 to a 5751---this combination sounds better to me at low volumes thru my 2x12.
