These Go to 11 - The Guitar Amp Thread

Oh, I get the impression that he plays that stuff.  And I agree, you play it or you sell it.  I always feel like I have one amp and one guitar that I'm giving the side eye to.  But then I play it and realize why I keep it around.
This

I have way too many amps and most collect dust in my apt or, even worse, are buried under a bunch of other peoples gear in our studio space, but everytime I dig one out to sell I'll play though it and decide it sounds to good to sell.

I did put a couple on Craigslist recently and got zero hits. Do people still buy amps off Craigslist? @Foggy Notion I've sold a ton of gear there in the past but haven't in a while, I usually get at least some response.

Speaking of Vox, this is a nice little strat/les paul showcase into Voxes.  It was nice when pop songs had killer solos.

 

 

It’s always interesting in a 2-guitar band to see how the guys choose their instruments and amps.  
 

This was a good exercise:

I'll admit not having much interest in Fender's Tonemaster series in the past.  And I'm not in the market to trade in one of my tube amps for something like this.  And what's more, I'm in the school of thought that the Princeton Reverb is overrated unless you mod it to the point that it sounds more like a Deluxe Reverb, and that's why I have one of those.  Et cetera.

 

So having said that, this Tonemaster Princeton Reverb sounds really good.

Anyone in OH care to pick up an amp? First time in about 3 years one of these came up for sale. 

#7 of 25 - CME - Marshall Astoria Custom - Black / Gold - with custom road case https://reverb.com/item/63846101-7-of-25-cme-marshall-astoria-custom-black-gold-with-custom-road-case?utm_source=android-app&utm_medium=android-share&utm_campaign=listing&utm_content=63846101

Daughter's ex-boyfriend seems to be trying to buy his way back into her good graces, and gave her a pretty sweet Silvertone electric for Xmas.  She needs an amp.  My budget is zero, but I'll go above that.  Looking for one of those decent practice jobs that uses samples, preferably not modeling.  I've heard all kinds of references to them on the threads here but I tune all of that out by nature.  Now I'm screwed.  

Did I mention cheap?

She already plays, not great, but she's a terrific musician and will get mighty good with little effort.  The amp doesn't need to be stage loud, but it should sound good enough to mic and go through a PA at a small club gig.  Thanks.

I'm considering selling my Blues Jr. I've had it for over 20 years, but it's too loud for home, and too heavy to haul to church.

I'm using a little Blackstar HT-1. It's only 1 watt but puts out enough volume to piss off my wife.

 

I'm going to post it on FB Marketplace and Craigslist but will sell it here if any of you are SoCal and need 15W amp.

Soooooo.... Speaking of nostalgia for amps. I may have had one or two too many whiskeys Saturday before last, and in a fit of romanticism put a low offer in on a JCM900.

I honestly don't have much use for this as I have two Jubilees, but it was fun to play for a minute. The original EL34 JCM900s sound fantastic.

 

I guess TL;DR if anyone wants a 100 watt Marshall lemme know.

Please take it off my hands lol. I woke up Sunday with a hangover and cussing.

 

It does rip though. If you are doing like 90s punk or hard rock, this is the sound.

CSB - buddy of mine here in Phx bought a JCM 900 combo a few years ago. Got kind of done with it and on a whim put it on Reverb. Neil Geraldo bought it.

He calls me and says hey Neil fucking Geraldo is coming over to pick up the Marshall in like 30 min. I couldn’t get there in time.

This is the drummer in our band who has the gold sparkle DW touring kit he bought from Stevie Nicks’ drummer.
