Any sounds clips? Again, very nice!
Just got me this little thing. JTM-1 Offset
Have a few.
This one is a 100 watt Fender Prosonic head with Reverb. One off Bruce Zinky handbuild and was given to Brad Whitford in Aerosmith. Still has the Property of Aersosmith sticker and inventory control # on the back of the chassis covering the hole where the rec control knob should be. Prosonic Combo Chassis and preamp Tonemaster power section with a big accutronics tank bolted the back screen.
25 Watt Zinky Blue Velvet Bruce built me in 08
Left is an early 90's Boogie DC 5 head right s a super rare Carvin X50B Hot Rod Mod head.
Also own a PRS MT15 head and a Boogie Subway Rocket 1/10 combo

I almost pounced on one of these on CL a few weeks ago because the price was so right, but stopped simply because I had no idea what to expect. What do you like about it?
Cleans like a fender....Drive like a Marshall
The reverb is inherently noisy, but a good pedal in the loop will fix that. only other down side is that its loud. Really really loud. even on 50watts it will peel paint.
I paid 300 with the foot switch and a second set of tubes, bought a good cover for it and already had a Source Audio True Spring reverb pedal.
haven't found a pedal it doesn't like.
Just picked up a mint Traynor YCV40WR. 2 separate channels with eq's for each, reverb and presence on both. 3 12ax7 and 2 6V6. Similar to a Deluxe Reverb. Has a 12 inch Vintage 30. You can pick them up for less than a Deluxe Reverb. It the amp In the middle. Also just picked up the Rickenbacker 330. Have wanted it for a long time.

Tweed Deluxe clone. Main gig amp. Great cleans and some edge of breakup when pushed at gig levels. A lot of folks write these off as not having enough headroom for using live but I've found them to be just about perfect. Light weight too so easy as sweet tater pie to carry around.
Sorry about the beautiful blonde in the way.
What a classic combo! A beautiful blonde will always try to be the center. of attention. Congrats on those two beauties.
Fender Super Sonic 100
A wonderful Captain Amps Tweed Super 210.
Everything about this fantastic amp is written here:
My main amp since 2013 is a Hughes & Kettner Edition Tube 25th Anniversary.
20 watt tube-combo with a 12'' speaker, 2 channels, 3-band-eq, spring-reverb (which I rarely use); effects loop. Around 20 kg, so easy enough to carry around (I had my refrigerator days with rack plus 4x12'' cabinets back in the 90s).
Best clean sound I've ever had, nice crunch too (don't miss a separate eq at all).
Enough headroom for small clubs, if I play bigger stages, I'll put a Shure SM58 in front. I'm not even using a second 12''-cabinet any longer.
My back-up amp is a Hughes & Kettner Edition Tube 20th Anniversary - pretty much the same circuit with a different speaker.
Both great amps for a rather budget second hand price - would immediately buy another one, if one of them would meet its end.....
I agree : the amp is at least half of the tone... But it's me, OK ?

Small size - the Roland MicroCube is here to give the scale.
Medium size :
Large size - awaiting some touches, setting and finishing :
I bought this six months ago. It's a good sounding amp, but doesn't have the Punch and tone of my Twins. I'm having a difficult time wrapping my head around this one. Not sure if it's a keeper.
