    Usually JMJ30 through a 2x12. A modded Champ through a single Celestion Gold on occasion.

    Sounds great through any vintage Fender amp I've tried-loves the twin reverb

    I'm a small amp guy, I own only small amps

    2 watt Pignose
    5 watt Vibro Champ XD
    10 watt Electar by Epiphone ( with a matching 12" cab)
    10 watt Tech 21
    15 watt Blues Jr

    Of late the Vibro Champ is just such a great amp I can't stop using it. I'm thinking about building a matching cab with a 10" or 12" speaker

    Lately I run everything through an Egnater Rebel 30 set clean (I play jazz). It fattens up the Tele more than my old Pro Reverb at reasonable volumes. If I don't feel like toting 50 lbs (Egnater) or 80 lbs (Pro Reverb) around, I use a Cube 60 or a Clarus 2r with a Redstone cab.

    Right now a Marshall G50R (small and light)
    But prefer my Fender DRRI w/Weber upgrade or my Peavey VTX Classic for big rooms

    BF Tremolux with Weber 12A150 and a 12A150W. I practice with a blues jr (NOS) but I don't like it that much. Doesn't really do cleans very well on the bridge pickup.

    A Roland Cube mostly or a Fender Harvard Reverb. I'll mic those if I need. I'm tired of lugging big amps around.

    Late '90s Laney LC50 generally for gigs, but one of these days I'm gonna bust out the '78 Peavey Classic VT 4x10. My teles sound great through both.

    Mssion 5e3.

    Vicious overdrive, fat gorgeous cleans, and a touch sensitive sweet spot a mile wide in between.

    I am a living room/ den player so my amp needs are not big. I play through a Microcube and a 40 watt Rogue 2x8 chorus. I just got the Rogue from MF for 71.99 shipped and I LOVE it. It's built like a tank and both clean and dirt channels sound very good. Decent reverb and a very good chorus sound. Cleans are very nice. If it had Fender written on it the price would be $300.

    Roland Cube Street. It's small, portable, lightweight, awesome-sounding, and surprisingly loud for 5 watts. Also can run on six AA batteries and has a separate channel for a mic.

    mostly a 65 ampeg NON-reverb Rocket( this goes especially well with my 65 HARMONY rocket!). sometimes (depending on travel/space reqirements)a PJ or 78 vibro-champ. once in a great while i take out the DRRI just to blow the dust off it! love them all like children! they're all great in their own way!
