    I picked Marshall. I had to randomly pick from Fender, Mesa, and Marshall cuz they all make such great amps. Can't say I've tried many others.

    Hughes & Kettner. If you've been on the forums at all for the past year, you've heard me rave about them.



    The logos themselves make me light up. At a glance, it says "German engineered perfection" in the style of the logo itself. It's see through styled cabinet shows a unique touch. There's nothing like playing in the dark and seeing those tubes provide all the light.

    The tone. I doubt there will ever be an all tube amp that's as versatile or has as many options as this without sacrificing tone. 100w, 6 channels, 13 tubes and anything from the past to the present can be obtained. Vox, Fender, Marshall, Mesa is all in here (as well as their own take on the high gain channel in the path of Soldano and Bogner). Reverb, DI boxes, MIDI capability individual & easy fuse access and more.

    Hey Jeff, haha... yes I have

    GT12AX7M in the V1 position, 8 JJ ECC83S tubes, and 4 "Winged C" Svetlana EL-34s.

    Big props to Gearjoneser for helping me pick out the tubes, they're awesome and truly help with the versatility of the amp.

    Man, the Hughes & Kettner sure is pretty...looks like it could guide an aircraft in to land too!

    One of the amps I'm really keen on getting is a Matchless Chieftan

    As Gearjoneser can attest to, it's one of the finest amps you can buy. It has the best cleans I have EVER heard out of an amp. Runners up are the actual blackface Fender Twin and Deluxe Reverbs and the TopHat Club Deluxe.

    I'm really digging my Mesa Boogie and Line 6 right now. They seem to work with each other just right.

    Well, I couldn't be happier with my DSL50 right now, especially since I already have a Fender head sitting around for when I need the real smooth cleans.

    Although, I must admit, that after playing a Bogner Ecstacy, I really want one. Just a great sounding amp. Little pricey though, so start saving pennies.

    Those Hughes and Kettners sho are pretty! I think if I designed an amp, I would have used that plexiglass front too. So cool that you can see all the tubes glowing, especially in a dark rehearsal room. I didn't know that amp had tube retainers on every single tube.

    I jumped through hoops, and worked financial feats of magic to get my 94 Bogner and 97 Matchless Chieftain. If I lost everything in life, those two pieces would be the last 2 things I'd sell.

    Hard to pick one, but maybe fender for the sheer breadth of great amps they have produced over the years. There are so many different flavours of fender. I especially love tweed, blonde and brownface era models.

    But basically all the major amp manufactures make at least one classic amp.

    One overlooked amp: 60s era ampeg jet and reverberocket amps. Class A, with a weird pwer tube, but superb tone generators. Far better than the reissues. These amps are CHEAP secondhand compared to other handwired 60s amps.

    Mesa boogie for punk rock, Marshall for classic Rock, Vox for cleans, Rivera (no ones mentioned it yet) are amazing both clean and also with lots of distortion. Peavey (I dont like the logo) and fender i consider average (too mainstream).
