    big gig? Bad Cat Black Cat 30.
    medium / small gig: Black Cat Cub IV
    put a gun to my head and make me take a Fender? I'll take the 69 Silverface Twin and put a Distortron in front of it. But the sound guy will not be happy.

    Soldano SLO 30. Not on your list, but that's what I'd use.

    Mine would be more Marshally, but any Deluxe would have no problem getting me what I need. I picked the Hot Rod Deluxe because it’s more “modern” sounding and more versatile, IMHO.

    Can I have my 65 Super Reverb back?

    Other than that, I’ll take the twin - good for any size gig.

    the big old 69 twin is the best amp there...i found 65 DRRI underwhelming....fender amps used to be among the best money could buy...my 74 non M/V pro reverb was a cracker the modern one i got after selling it couldnt hold a candle to it...

    A proper, early Silverface Twin, would be an easy choice for me, from that list. I'd find a way through the volume 'issues' and my drummer buddy would do the heavy lifting (he's half my age and a good lad :D).

    The only reason I voted for a Hot Rod DeVille is because I have one. Gig is tonight, right? Then I'm set, and know the amp already.
    This wouldn't be my first choice, but like I said, I have it and know it. Mine has been modded a bit however.

    Nothing from that list. Current favourites are 57 Custom Deluxe and 64 Custom Hand Wired Princeton Reverb. Previous contenders are Swart AST Master Mk II 112 Combo and Mesa Boogie 112 Lonestar Special.

    I would pick a TWEED, so I'll have to pass on the poll. Currently have a champ clone with a 12" speaker, but would take a Deluxe, Tremolux, Super or Bandmaster in a hot second. Only tweeds for me!

    I will always mourn the loss ( in 2016, needed $$ quickly!) of my '68 Deluxe Reverb- hell of an amp!

    So that was my pick, I bet I'd be just as happy with a Princeton Reverb RI

    DRRI. Everything I play would work well through it.

    Black Face or Early Silver Face SUPER REVERB. No doubt about it.
    [If someone else carries/moves it for me]
    Otherwise I use a Quilter Tone Block 202 [3.3 lbs] and a 1x12 Fender BASSBREAKER Speaker Cabinet with a 150 watt Eminence Legend that weighs about 25 LBS.
    [Old Man's Rig.]

    Twin.
    The real thing, no RI’s please.
    They’re loud, clean, dependable, have great reverb and tremolo, and take pedals well.
    If you to want to, or need to compete with your bandmates to be heard, you can.
    I wish my back and belly would let me use em’.

    I selected Twin because you didn't have Magnatone Twilighter Stereo as an option.
