To me 2019 was a year that I made significant amp changes. The attached shot is current-Ampeg BA 115; DRRI; Super Champ x2 with a 12" combo cab DV Mark 50 with a 2 x 10 (SC64) and a 1 x 10 (Ragin Cajun). This is a fairly flexible group that I've found gives me consistent sound. Gone are a 66 Ampeg Jet, 65 Reverberocket and a 65 Tremolux. The old amps were all gig worthy for sure but I felt it was time to move on.
In size order:
* Katana 50
* Rumble 100

80's Crate G20XL
The 69 VR, with 2 10" alnico Mojotones, has been the long-time workhorse of the bunch, but more recently have favored the lighter weight PR and Vox. The PR has a 10" alnico Ruby. The 67 VR is in beautiful original shape and sounds amazing.
First, I don't use any pedals, so, the amps speak for themselves, and, to me, I find three of the amps; Concert, Bandmaster, and, DR, each have a distinct and different voicing. I can't say one of these a best. However, I must say, I really like the tones of the old amps (Concert and Bandmaster), that I lived with, going on 50 years. Also, find there is a distinct difference, depending on which of my guitars I am playing (6 Strats, 1 Epi LP). I must also say, as my playing these days is mostly "bedroom", I don't have a better environment to compare. I have used my DR playing with a garage band and do very much like it. I haven't play out with either of the other two in many years. Thanks for reading my post.

I guess I kind of figured having a both a Super-Sonic and a Princeton Reverb would be redundant,...but that black and wheat Princeton Reverb is a sweet looking little amp.
I don't want to totally derail the thread, but what differences are you hearing?
Do you use them for different purposes?
I guess I'm looking for a GAS justification to have both myself.
One more today.

Gosh no pedals? I love my delay and distortion.those two pedals make me really enjoy the sound of my own play I guess if I was a virtuoso I'd still like those effects but they really do enhance things for me I respect players that dont want them big time
At 72 I'm not gigging like I used to, so my main requirement for an amp is that I must be able to carry it in one hand. So for grab n' go for the gigs I do I use my Swart AST Pro along with a Rimrock Mythical Overdrive. For playing in the house I have 3 amps that imho are the perfect house amps...1. my 1960 Champ(5f1), 2. my 1962 Princeton(6g2), and my 10/14/2018 Clark Webster/Harvard(sf10)....these three amps give me everything I need at home. From beautiful Fender cleans, to those wonderful warm, brown, over driven sounds the old tweeds and browns are known for!! I still have my blonde Vibro King, but just the thought of moving it around is exhausting!! It was my favorite gigging amp, but now it just sits with the cover on. I still think the blonde cabinet with the oxblood grille cloth and the flat logo was the coolest looking amp....ymmv....
ps, I am a believer in tube amps only....
