My oldest is a 1964 Ampeg Gemini II

65 Super Reverb ( in newer cab ) a 67 Selmer 15w ( that I never use , but it got me started messing with amps ) 74 Super , and finally : a 1974 Bandmaster Reverb head. I have a few newer amps Classic 30 , Vox etc , but I have no idea how old they are !
71 Siverface Bassman head.
1964 AC30TB. The speakers are 50 years old in April and sound wonderful.

Those are the ones older than I am anyway.
You also asked if age was an issue. If they are maintained, and eventually they all get recapped, they can go several more decades until the next rebuild. So no, it's no issue, you just gotta like what you hear - new or old matters not.
'47 Vega Commander here.
Mid '70s Mesa Boogie
You don't own any older tweeds? Surprising...
1967 PR. It was my Drummer's Dad's.
Been giging it steady for a year now, no major issues. It's about due for it's annual check-up at the amp doc's.
I own a 1965 AB763 Twin Reverb, modified, and a stock mint 1966 AB763 Super Reverb.
Also a 1969 Princeton Reverb that is heavily modified by our own muchxs.
I'm set for awhile me thinks.
1956 Premier 110
1958 Fender Deluxe
Hey, I found a picture of my old Gretsch. I thought I was out of luck because it's in the shop right now.
63 Brown Deluxe
an Oz made Goldentone Reverbmaster 40 from '65... the Vase cab is nearly as old...
Early '50s Supro tweed with a field coil speaker. Phenomenal amp for slide with a P-90. Yowza!
1962 Brownie Princeton. Just picked it up yesterday. Still the honeymoon face. Responds real well to varying attack. Also great for playing with just fingers. I might move it to pick up one in a little better condition, though.
I had an 1860's steam powered one a while back but the boiler blew so I had to junk it.
Not very old I guess because I'd say it's my mid or late 90s Blues Cube.
You guys have some nice old amps. My oldest is a 1960 Tweed Deluxe, all original except a couple tubes. Sounds awesome.
30's Ric M-10 with repro black walnut cabinet. It sounds like a Champ with a 10" Jensen and works great.
