    I was thinking about this the other day and had to giggle when I realized mine is my blackstar fly3. I can't say enough nice things about that little guy. Extremely small, quiet enough to not bug my wife (she's "noise sensitive" or so she says) can get loud enough for the needs of solo practice, it sounds is fairly good, and it's responsive (can clean up or get dirty by pick attack etc). I have a few amps and almost all are "better" than this one and yet she's the workhorse for around the house (most of my playing) and travel. So what is your most used?

    I'm still completely happy with my Roland Cube 80XL.
    It's starting to look a little beat up.
    I've done lots of gigs with it, and it got a little "relicing" in a couple of car accidents.
    I have an 80GX, too.
    I prefer the XL, so the newer 80GX is the spare.

    Actually it's not really an amp that I play the most.
    I have a Vox Tone Lab that is tied into a mixer and a CD player so that I can practice (play along)through headphones. This setup lets me play at any volume, any time that I want. Keeps the whole household happy. The lab is usually set to emulate a Fender Twin by the way.

    Of all my fancy amps I still usually go through a tweed blues Jr.

    I love my Musicman 112RP. I would be playing Musicman 210RD but it was stolen several years ago. I'm still looking for a clean one to buy and I'll stick the 112 RP in the close when I find one.

    The old Twin and Supro get a well-deserved rest.

    Peavey Special 150. Sometimes I like to play my guitar through my TKO 115 bass amp, but to sound good that has to be cranked up pretty loud to push the speaker. The Special's clean channel sounds good to me at any volume.

    I spent a few years in a band where I settled on playing a Peavey Audition 20, at a time when I owned a pair of cool little tweed Valco 1x10" tube amps. The Valcos sounded warm, round, kind of squishy...all those small tube combo characteristics most of us like...but the little SS Peavey, with the help of a compressor, had just the right grit and slice in its sound to work best in the band mix. I modded it: it had a International-Harvester logo in place of the pointy Peavey logo. Sort of a pot-metal beam blocker.

    Super champ XD for me.

    It's perfect, plays well al lower volumes around the house.

    Loud enough to play live at a smaller show.

    If I have a bigger show I'll just mike it or use the line out to the p.a. and use it as my monitor.

    Every now and then I'll pull out the 4x12 cabinet, and my marshal head, but seems like that's less and less all the time. I hate lugging that thing around....

    Either the '69 Twin or the reissue Super. Both sound fantastic to me.

    Either one or Botha my Super Champs. If I want more, the Pro Sonic. If I want low-fidelity with killer trem...the Silvertone 1472.
