    Hey everyone new member here, thanks for letting me join this forum. I’m a long time lurker but I’ve never joined a forum and thought it’s probably time.

    I’ve been playing guitar for 17 years and started working on tube amps and tube testers the last 2 years. I have a growing collection of tube testers and other vintage test equipment.

    I don't own a Tele currently but I had a Squier Tele that I sold. I definitely want to get another one. I have been getting into Strats recently coming from years of being a humbucker person. I currently am playing a Squier JM Jazzmaster, Squier CV 50's Strat, and a no name Japanese Strat copy.

    I'm more into tube amps though, especially the vintage low watt ones. I have a Silvertone 1471, Silvertone 1481, Stage (Univox) ULM-6, Sunn Sonaro, Sunn Sentura II, Epiphone Valve Jr. that I modded, Marshall Class 5, Orange OR15, and the Monoprice 15w and 5w. I also have a vintage Pignose 7-100 that doesn't seem to be working properly.

    For tube testers I have two B&K 500's, an Eico 666, Superior TV-12, Superior TD-55, Seco Model 107, and a Simpson Model 305.

    I'm excited to learn a ton from everyone here and hopefully help contribute some. Thanks!

    Welcome @Zootallures from Oregon! Hey, what is your honest opinion of the Monoprice 15W? I had my finger on the buy button back in January because there was a $50 off coupon/sale, could have gotten it brand new for $200, I shoulda pulled the trigga!

    Nice equipment you have!

    Honestly I love that amp! I used it for two years and even took it on tour and just mic’d it everywhere I went and it sounds great. It takes pedals super well and changing the tubes made a huge difference. I even liked the stock Celestion seventy 80.

    One day after 2 years it just stopped turning on though. I’ve tried to figure out what happened and I haven’t been able too. I’m thinking it’s the power transformer.

    If you can get it cheap I say go for it I got mine on sale for $150 a while ago.

    Welcome.

    I'm a year on in Medfurd.

    Now I "know" an amp guy.

    Welcome to the forum. Is your small Superior 55 tester the "C" series or the "D" series?
