    Let's see your amplifiers...

    I have a bunch of amps. But my favorites are my '59 Bassman Reissue and my 90's Prosonic Head with 2X12 cab. Here are some pics.

    This is my "family." Missing are my Pignose 150R Crossmix, my Pignose 7-100 (the first two amps I ever owned) and my NUX 8SE.

    An old "family portrait"......



    Not shown are the recent acquisitions; a '66 Vibrolux Reverb, a '68 Pro Reverb, and a 5E3 Tweed Deluxe clone.

    Too bad you can't fit a Fender into the family, eh?

    Sure is hard following Phantoman!
    Old pics, Tele, and SG have both found new homes!

    Here are a few (I've sold the Mesa). The Cure gets the most use out of all of my amps.



    My '66 VR with a friend's '65 DR-



    A gut shot of the Princeton Reverb clone that I built. What an awesome amp!



    Awesome tweed Deluxe clone. It's the amp that I learned to love Teles with!



    This Marshall JCM 800 4010 kicks blues rock ass in a way that I never imagined (or I would've bought one 40 years ago!).



    This Mesa Fillmore 25 might be the best self contained "Grab and go amp", but only because I like it more then the Mesa Mark Five:25 which weighed 11 pounds less!.



    It's hard to stop playing this Dr. Z Monza. It's an early '70s style rock monster!



    A friend built this funky little single ended amp with tremolo before he passed away. I saw it in a CL add after his death and bought it from a guy who bought it from a guy... I'm so glad I found it to remember him by. It's pretty cool sounding!

    I tried to buy one of Cygnus X1 SE amps when he was selling a few, but I was too late. Sure wish I had contacted him a little sooner!

    I’m definitely TFF’s humblest member. My only amp is a Blues Jr Tweed with a Jensen speaker.

    I'd say you're more focused on the music rather than the gear. We all approach this hobby in very different ways (all valid). For instance, I never wanted to be in a working band and had no dreams of fame or rock stardom. I just wanted to jam with my friends, for my friends. Also, I'm a gearhead.

    That's a pretty Tele. Did you remove the pickguard, or did it come without?


    ETA: My bad, I now see it. White Tele with a white pickguard. Nice!

    This is what I've been using for my Sunday go to meetin' gig. It's a Bogen K10 PA amp that I converted for my use years ago. A 6V4 rectifier, a pair of 6AQ5 power tubes, a 12AX7 & a 6AU6. The 1x12" closed-back cab houses a generic Fender speaker, probably an Eminence. It sounds great!

    1969 Super Reverb. Blackface curcuit, TAD reverb tank, original CTS alnico speakers:



    1983 JCM 800 2205 and 1987 Silver Jubilee cab with V30s:



    Ceriatone JTM 45 clone with KT66 powertubes. Cab is DIY open back with Greenbacks:



    1996 JTM 60:



    For home practice, I use a Boss Katana 50.
