    My needs are simple so my Tone King Sky King is my do everything amp. clean channel, dirty channel, dual attenuators so I can play pretty much any size club. Reverb, tremolo.

    A 5F1 with a Jupiter 12LC-P is a sweet sounding amp!

    I don't play with much gain so my BF Pro Reverb has been my go to for many years. For lower volume gigs, it was a '59 tweed Pro. In future I will be using a '70 VT40. No little crunchy bedroom amps here.

    Rivera Chubster 40. Bought it 22 years ago and nothing else has even come close to the variety this amp delivers.

    My selection my over the top to a lot of people. My Marshall JVM 410H the way I have it set up with my 1960A cab with 4 Celestion Creamback 65’s, allows me to play from a whisper to way over my the top loud. I generally play from Beatles to Black Sabbath.

    My quick grab amp setup is my Bassman 50 with a PPIMV and a single Jensen C12N speaker cabinet. I use 4 types of pedals to get my sound, delay, reverb, blues driver, tube screamer.

    This.

    For me, it's a Rockitt Retro 50 (w/PPIMV) into one or two Egnator Tweaker cabs that have been reloaded with 100 watt Scumbacks, straight in. Gets me everywhere in my rock n roll world.

    But, you needs are more wide ranging, hence my posting the above quote. I've owned a Blues Deluxe, and played the Hot Rod Deluxe, and it does all of that. If you get the Hot Rod Deluxe IV, it is even lighter due to a plywood cab.

    Reasonably priced, very easy to find, portable, and versatile!

    Fender PA 100 head, 100W tube 70s pa, into a Avatar 2x12 cab.

    It is a very flexible system, 4 preamp channels, with rudimentary bass and treble EQ and master volume. It can be used for electric, bass, acoustic, slide, lap steel and vocals.

    In jams, multiple guitars and mics can be used at the same time. It has a high headroom and is an excellent pedal platform.

    They are relatively, less expensive than a Fender Twin.

    I have a Fender Pro Jr IV Tweed and use the same pedalboard and settings with both amps, for standardization.


    YMMV
