So, what amps do you own?

Post by Regret » Fri Feb 11, 2005 6:24 pm

Beside my DC-5, I have a Marshall JCM900 SL-X 2100 EL-34 that gives me the Marshall tones the DC-5 doesn't have. I need a ToneBone A/B switcher though.

I also own 2 combos: a Peavey Rage 158 (1st amp) and a Marshall MG80r cd (2nd amp, I like it for a solid state and use it for practice if the weather is bad and I don't want to take my tubes)

1. Peavey Rage 158.
2. Marshall MG80r cd combo on top of a Marshall MG412B.
3. Marshall JCM900SL-X on top of a Marshall 1960AV.
4. Mesa DC-5 on top of a Mesa horiz. Recto 2x12.

So what do you own?

Peavey Rockmaster Preamp

Peavey 75w 1x15 keyboard amp (I played punk, it was loud at took dirt boxes well, what more did I need in an amp?)

Mesa Recto Preamp & 2:100 Power Amp

Rockford-Fosgate Punch 600a5 (powers my truck's stereo)


I'm currently saving for a MkIIB, but other sh*t keeps getting in the way.....
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.

I have a loaded Mark III with 2 thieles in imbuya/wicker, a 1968 Gibson Hawk 1-10", and a '40's 1-8" screamer. My son has a TSL100, a Peavey Roadmaster 160 head (excellent) , and a Holmes T75 piece of junk. I'd like to add a JTM45 to the mix with a greenback loaded cab, and a Fender blackface Twin or Deluxe.

Just a IIC. It does everything I need it to, no matter the volume. I am rehousing it in a hardwood head/1U rack combination with matching speaker cabinet and wicker grilles.

I would like some way to practice with headphones, but I've got other priorities.

I'll probably just make a regular head casing with a 1U space at the bottom. It will work out since the head is the same width as a rack unit.

nomad 45 lc head (jj/testla)
avatar 2x12 (celestion vintage 30 and g12h30)
jcm 900 100 watt dual reverb combo (jj/testla and vintage 30's)
marshall mg30 (miserable practice amp)

used to own:
marshall avt150 combo
marshall dsl50 head
marshall 1960a

ax..i share your desire for a jtm45, or even a bluesbreaker combo.. simple, efficient, brilliant. played one at long and mcquade and i was hooked, shame on the prices marshall think they can get away with on the reissues...

ladyfriend has an all origal fender vibrolux reverb, original tubes, speaker, tube chart, cover, and a matching extension cab sitting in her basement collecting dust. not quite a fender deluxe, but its a wondre of an amp.

I was havin' big problems with my marshall practice amp
(playing in clean and it goin' into dirt on its own :shock: )
so I took it back and got a little pa system and this thing
in solid rosewood (I guess it's a limited or somthing).
It seems to work well and looks good.
