It's been a couple years since the last amp roll-call, and what I've been using latley is a '65 BF Deluxe.

Funny story: So I bought this amp after askin' JayDee what his steel went through on "Sweetheart", and he kindly replied, via email, that it was a Fender Deluxe.

So I ran out and found one for the studio. Well, as it turned out, I've never tried it for recording, not yet anyway. It's turned into my stage amp. And it's easy ..arrive at the gig, turn the vol to 10 ..treble and bass around 5 or 6, and it's ready to go. Easy transporting too.

I'll have to second the Deluxe notion.

'73 SFDR.

I've been using the old Twin I got from Jesse H. for the last 6 months or so. I have a Keeley modded TS-808 I use to give it a little grit. The twin has been super reliable and done me right ever since I got it.

I'm back to the Blues Deluxe. I keep switching between a Deluxe Reverb RI and the Blues Deluxe depending on my ears at the time.

...and pedal steel at living-room volume. It remains my first choice, after 30+ years. Along with Princeton Reverb, Vibro Champ....and a dang Peavey LTD 400 to go with my Emmons.

And a true confession: I have been parking a Roland Micro-Cube next to my big black leather chair for whatever I might be noodling with next -- lapsteel, electric mando, guitars -- while watching TV.

Ironweed...how do you like the Micro Cube? I was curious about those or the Vox DA5 for portable (battery powered) usage.

I like it a lot, for what it is...which is a loud, battery-powered amp. I was shocked (figurative, not literal) the first time I played one. Adjustable gain and volume. Six or seven amp model settings -- JC chorus - black panel - british combo are useful, other higher-distortion modes don't thrill me. One knob for delay or reverb, which sound pretty good. One knob for (choose 1) chorus, flanger, phaser, tremelo -- which sound fair. Headphone or line out. Wall wart or six AA batteries -- a set of batteries goes 24-48 hours. Not a beginner or practice amp, but a decent workingman's tool, IMHO. Haven't tried the Vox.

I used to own a 1980 SFPR w/push-pull volume knob which was modified by Paul Rivera. I had to let it go to get Mesa amp ... after long 'amp-hunt' journey, I found a 1966 BFPR and got back to Fender camp. I still love my 1994 VOX AC30TBX, though! Very Happy

Another vote for the Deluxe. Mine is a Silver Face that my tech Black Faced. Is that proper English? Anyway I love it. I also have a Vibro Champ that great for playing at home and at parties.

Ironweed mentioned the Roland Micro-Cube. I hink that they amazing for what they are. A number of my friends have been really surprized by mine. It's great for jams on my boat...the batteries really do last for a long time.
