when I was rocking and in outlaw country bands? my Fender Twin w/JBLs...crushed in Wyoming when an 18 wheeler ran over us.

Now? my JazzKat. 100 watts, 20 lbs, 17" x 10" x 8".

Ok I'll start this circus...I think it's a ampalooza between three amps I use.
A Fender '65 Twin, a '72 Marshall watt head with a Showman cab w/two 15's, or my
Music Man RP112 65w with it's new 'Duane' speaker. These are just so sweet sometimes it makes my sticker peck out.

Can bass players chime in on this? If so I will stack my '73 Ampeg SVT up against any other bass rig out there.

I'm not sure it's the best amp I've ever played through, but I'm extremely happy with my Fender Twin with JBL's, it's perfect for my sound. But I am getting SICK of carrying to gigs all the time.

My band is recording an album right now and I've basically used a different amp on every part so far and they are each great, but for live I've been using the Twin for years now and I've never been so consistantly happy.

By the way, my dad builds tube amps and referbeshes old ones, so my twin stays in top condition.

I've had the same concert rig for nearly 20 years...a Hartke 3500 amp and a GK 4-10 and 1-15 cabinet stacked. If I ever get anything to replace it, it'll be an Ampeg SVT and an 8-10 cabinet like T-Tom has.

I think what I'm playing through now is probably the best I've had...and I've been using the same rig for 9 years now....and the amp itself for about 13 or 14.

Original issue ('93? '94?) tweed Fender Blues DeVille (4x10) that I bought brand new and then I got a Fender SFX Satellite in '98 and patch that through the DeVille's effects loop. No foot pedals, the SFX handles most of my fx needs.

My guitars are a sunburst Turner Model 1 & a sunburst '57 reissue Fender Strat.

I've never played through an SVT. I had an Ampeg B-25 in high school. Now I have an Eden WT-550 head through either two Eden 112XLT cabs or I still have two Eden 210XLTs.

I don't know if it is the best amp ever, but my '72 silverface Fender Princeton Reverb must be good since I have kept it for 22 years while some other amplifiers came and went. This year I rigged up a nice 1x10 extension cabinet for it from a gutted Peavey Backstage amp. Now I can play through a matched pair of reissue 10" Jensen alnico speakers.

I'm currently using a Valvetech Hayseed 30 that I love! A Vox ac30 done right. I've got a 68 Princeton Reverb that gets most of the playing time around the house but if I could only have 1 amp it would be my 68 Super Reverb. I gigged with that amp for over 10 years & was never disappointed.

When my uncle passed away a few years ago, we found a few fender amps out in his garage. I knew he was a musician back in the day but didn't know about his amps. Anyway, I took his 77 Fender Twin Reverb, not knowing if it worked or what had been done to it. This was one of the last of the 100W models. Got home, plugged it in and it barely worked. Brought it to a local Fender amp guy and he replaced the caps. Cost me $150. Got home, plugged it in and WOOOOHOO. The repair guy also pointed out that my uncle had the amp completely "blackfaced". Not just bypassing the master but he had it done the proper way.

It is, by far, the best sounding, most reliable amp I've ever had and it comes with a cool history.

So far, the majority is vintage black or silver face Fender tube amps. No surprise to me.
