    My Bassbreaker 007, with the 10” Greenback.
    It’s not much for glassy clean tones, but if I’m wanting a sweet tube distortion, this little guy sounds killer

    Princeton Reverb or a tweed Vibrolux depending on how many rocks...

    Mesa Boogie Express 5:25. I use a BOSS-EQ200 equalizer for tone shaping. Lately I have a lot of love for the 5W setting. I have no problem with loudness. +9dB on the intensity slider gives me all I need without pushing the amp over the edge. 5W gives me clarity and brightness without ice pick, especially with my SG and Gretsch Anniversary.

    '64 Princeton for lower-volume sweet breakup or Swart AST Pro for a bit more headroom and punch

    An old Super Reverb may be the best amp ever!

    9C6E7B1E-1D2E-451C-B379-A714B9B0D64C.jpeg This old bomb. My 72 Super Reverb with Carvin branded Eminence speakers. Also sounds amazing with an ep3 and a fuzz face.

    5E3 Tweed Deluxe clone. For late night noodling, turned down fairly low, the tonal complexity is unbelievable, although if I want to get it's dirt at that volume, I use a GOOD attenuator. I've installed a totally passive effects loop to allow addition of a rack mount reverb/delay, if desired.

    Happy new year John! Please tell us more of this very interesting A-class!!! I recognise KT150 there but also two smaller but still big power tubes. Have you schematic to post?

    Howdy,

    Late '60s Vibro Champ for bedroom volume. My Dr. Z Carmen Ghia for a bit louder. Both are fantastic for clean and raunch.
