Pretty much the universal solvent for me when I don't need Fender.
Gomez Amps of course....
My first choice is Fender
My second choice is Fender
My third is Fender
and 4th through 24th are Fender
I do have a few Rickenbacher amps from the '30s & '40s, but I've never used them for a gig.
I only have one amp, my beloved Blues Jr, but am considering getting another amp. Vox AC15 or Trace Elliot Velocette, probably.
Yo, cowboytwang! Are you Fender afflicted or something? Sweet family you got there!
Outdoors, I use my 1964 Concert. In clubs, my 1961 Ampeg Reverberocket rules.
In addition to my '66 Super Reverb, I have a '60's Kustom 100 head and matching 1x15 ported cab (still use the cab, head is used for backup only), a Sovtek MiG 50H 50W head for the master-volume stuff, and my main go-to amp for any situation (having retired the Super from active gigging) is a '60's Sunn 200S, a 60W head.
In addition to the Kustom cab, I also have a DIY openback 2x12 (Celestions) made from a gutted combo amp, and an '80's Risson slant-front 4x12 (Risson-Celestion). And my Super is actually split into a 2x10 combo and a 2x10 extension cab, so I can use the Fender 2x10 with a different head if I like.
Also my '78 Peavey Classic with the Tech 21 box set on "Bluesbreaker".
I have a Mission 5E3. An old Rockman 2B for headphone noodling.
If I get another amp, probably an Ampeg B15N.
Rienhardt 18W 1x12 clone. as close as i'll ever get to a vintage marshall. i have found my tone/sound
I don't have a Fender amp, but I have 2 amps that are Fender based.
A Kendrick Roughneck and a /13 CJ11.
Mid '90s Boogie Studio Caliber. Awesome amp. It's really my #1, with my '78 SFVC as my #2 for small rooms or clean clean clean sound mic'd.
OK..here ya go:
Mesa/Boogie Studio .22+ :
typically used with an 8'ohm cab like so:
'74 Traynor YGM-4 Studio Mate (My fave for practicing with the band these days - amazing amp)
'77 Traynor YGM-3 Guitar Mate (loaded with a Celestion Gold. Main back-up to my '73 SFDR which is also loaded with a Celestion Gold)
and at home for practicing guitar and bass:
Peavey Minx (little 40w bass amp from the 80's that actually ROCKS)
Other than a Fender, I've had great results with a tuck & roll 1968 Kustom K-50 (1x12 combo) and a early 60's Silvertone 1482 in the studio.
The only thing other than a Fender that I've used live is a Mesa Boogie, currently a Mark IIC+, but I'm not really happy with what I've been able to get out of it.
Now for bass, it's a whole other story - Ampeg, Clarus, Roland, etc.
besides fender, add me to the vox ac30cc2 list which I purchased 1 month ago
my beloved TM30
maybe a Mesa combo ?
