67 Fender Deluxe Reverb, owned since 82. Played hundreds of gigs with it until I retired it in 2004.
A 6V6 amp just seems to have a sweeter sound than an EL84.
No points for clarity in that statement .
Maybe it's just my American ears that pick this up .
BFDR. Not a reissue. Had 6L6s in it when I got it. Went through a couple of speaker swaps, had to have it overhauled, put 6V6s back in it. It's staying with me. I don't have to explain.
Excelsior. Good, maybe not great, amp. Best tremolo I have ever heard.
Super Champ XD
Super Champ X2. I realize that they depend on digital voicing, but the Fender voicings, at least, seem spot on. Love running the two together with a stereo chorus or a Y box either. Both on channel one for clean or the XD in tweed Bassman mode and the X2 in BFDR mode fer the Blues.
Either records beautifully.
5C3...the octal pre's just have a fatter, rounder tone. Not a fan of the later 6V6 Fenders.
For me, it's the Bell & Howell Filmosound that I rewired as a Fender Harvard circuit:
The 1960 DeArmond R15. It is what every 5E3 wishes it were.
The 1961 6G3 Deluxe. The circuit that slays every 18 watt Marshall.
Swart Atomic Space Tone.
Princeton Twin Reverb!
Some silver face Princetons sound so lively and colorful, you can't beat 'em. Many overtones and ghost notes when turned up a bit. My friend's newish '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb captures a lot of that and can get painfully loud; hard to believe it's only 22 watts. Excellent amps.
My new Magnatone Twilighter.
My new Suhr PT15IR sure sounds glorious on all three channels.
Hands down my favorite is the Louis Electric Deltone Reverb. Also love my ‘64 Fender Deluxe and Swart STR-Tweed
Handwired 12" Princeton Reverb with big iron and Stokes mod. When I built this amp, I had no idea how good it would sound.
Pine and poplar
Princeton Reverb. It just does all things well with the right pedals.
Most under-rated amp ever:
