A version of an early Traynor YGM-3, but designed to be about 10 lbs lighter, and a narrower chassis so the cabinet could be a lot smaller.

I'd like a Marshall JCM800 too, though I don't know where I would ever get a chance to use it hah.

I have one of my other dream amps already which is a 1968 Princeton Reverb. There isn't a better clean tone out there. a 1968 is identical circuit wise to a Blackface. it's just not as collectable.

My preference is for small low wattage tube amps with largish speakers. Had a Fender Champ on loan for a while which I really liked.

The new Fender Princeton with built in footswitchable compressor and overdrive really turns my crank, but it would only do for home. Two of them in a dual amp set-up would be heaven for my personal at home rig, and would also serve the teaching studio well.

Generally I like the Traynor YCV50 that I'm using now as a dual purpose (home and gig) amp, though it's really nothing fancy.

Peace, Mooh.

I have a few hehe...

One I already own is a Diezel Herbert.

I also love Bogners, Soldano SLO, VHT Pitbulls, an old Marshall Plexi ('70 small box 50 watt would be cool), Mad Professor...I could go on and on. GAS :banana:

Nothing too extravagant for me, I'm just an armature. A Blackface Princeton Reverb would be the amp for me.
definition of armature: A rigid framework serving as a supporting inner core for clay or other soft sculpting material.

I love my Deluxe Reverb. I suppose if my band got all popular and we started playing really big places I'd like a Hiwatt Custom 50. Or maybe one of those THD Flexis. But for now, what I've got is perfect.

The one I own - Tube Works Real Tube II Preamp and a solid state dual 40 watt power amp.

For the type of stuff I play, I've never heard anything that has made me want to change it, and I've heard alot of guitar amps.

If I was going to pick up a second amp, it would be an old Vox AC30 - the best sounding combo amp in the world - bar none.

I really don't know. Amps are such different beasts compared to guitars. I haven't tried that many. But let me give it a whirl.

For a thirty watt do a lot combo - Genz Benz Black Pearl or Mesa Lonestar Special.

In the Tweed area - A Victoria 45410 (Bassman)

Head - Fuchs Train 45

I'm even more clued out on cabs and speakers.

Edit: Add a Koch Studiotone (20w)to the do-a-lot-list.

I'm building a rig simular to yours. I have a Rocktron Voodu Valve. Just found and picked up a Peavey Classic 50/50 power amp. I have ordered and waiting waiting for my Rocktron All Access control pedal.




Lots of tone shaping options with the Voodu Valve. I'm using an old Marshall 1922 cab

Kingsley Deluxe, love it, have never played a better one.

Would love an original 50 watt Marshall 1987 plexi with a 412 prerola Greenback cab. Rock and Roll!

Not worth a divorce, though.

Other than the following "Dream Amps" I allready own... 1993 Soldano Hot Rod 50, 2001 Koch Multitone and 2006 Randall Lynch Box I would love to have a Budda Superdrive 45, Orange Tiny Terror, and Kerry King Marshall JCM 800... not that I'm a Slayer fan but I totally did Kerry's JCM 800 metal tone... and I'd love to have Wolf Hoffmans Stereo JCM800 but a fan allready owns it... maybe I can get the spec and have one built.Other than those I would also place a Cornford Hellcat on my list of dream amps.

I loved the classic 50/50 (except with a jmp-1. sounded awful). nice and chunky tone from all those el-84s.

I use a 1922 now with my reverend. miss the sound of the 25 watt greenbacks in the 1960ax though.
