I'm using a Gibson GA-5 most of the time now. Cool little amp that sounds great. Gotta mic it up to carry at gigs, but that's OK.


Sometimes I'm playing through a MusicMan HD150. It's a good amp too. The solid state pre section is nice and clean and the 6l6 power section really breaths life into the sound.

Am currently using an ampeg from the mid 60's- also a hot-rod deluxe, from time to time. the ampeg really gets a nice snarl to it after @ hour

Just picked up a older 70's era Princeton that someone had modded with a 12" speaker. Sounds really good and full, and saturates much earlier at only 15 watts. Very happy with the tone, and my back is much happier with the weight - probably comes in at about 30 + lbs.

I bought a Matchless Chieftain over the holidays after selling a 1971 Pro Reverb. The amp had been for sell locally, and I had my eye on it. It is a 1996 2-12 model. There was also a 2-10 advertised which I may have preferred, but I could never get an email response.
I am still experimenting with this amp, and have been able to dial in some pretty good tone with my G&L ASAT Classic. Adjustments of the bass, middle and treble make significant tone changes, as well as affect the cleaness. It is a great amp and for me I like the old school controls. Turn up the guitar volume and get a little more dirt.
I don't think it will replace the 66 vibrolux reverb though.

I just got a "new" amp. It's a 1980's Peavey Backstage Plus. 35 watts and a 10" speaker. I got it because I was looking for a living room amp to use for practicing and working with instruction videos. It's clean, has nice reverb and sounds good with a Tele. It takes pedals pretty well, too. I found it on ebay. I paid $20.50 + shipping. All I had to do was give it a fluff and buff and spray out the pots. I don't think the chassis was ever out of the cabinet. It'll be good for little gigs and jams, too. Nothin' fancy but it's perfect for my needs.

Still playing my good ol' trusty Fender '65 DRRI - that baby has been truly a workhorse of an amp and it's amazing how much power it puts out at only 22 watts!!! Surprised Surprised

Still playing my good ol' trusty '65 DRRI amp that I bought well over ten years ago - it's truly one great amp for small gigs and even some "bigger" gigs (like the Marty Stuart gig I did three years ago before my health went downhill and I had to quit the band I was in). I still play on the weekends but it takes almost everything I've got physically to sometimes make it through a gig....having Cerebral Palsy sucks and so does having back/leg problems to go along with it....Sad

Yeah, my Esquire is Sonic Blue as well. I'll try to get something together when it gets here. Should be here in about 4 weeks.

For some reason the links from FatSound died. Here's what it looks like.

1x12, Dual 6v6, great onboard trem and reverb. It's a crazy mix of Brown Fender/Supro/Tweed tones.

That is slick looking Matt. Straight out of the 50's. Is that a custom finish from Swart or is it a standard option? A buddy of mine has a Swart and it's a joy to play through.
