I'd love to be able to try out some amps like Bogner, Soldano, VHT, Matchless, or Hiwatt, or other boutique type amps, even though I can't afford to buy one.

Any places in the area that carry these amps?

Kenmore Music carries Bogner and Carr amps.

I have a Bogner, just sold my Matchless, used to have a VHT, and still have a Hiwatt. I wouldn't be opposed to letting you try some of what I still have.

No offense man I know it's a lower end.I just don't want it mingling with
you know,Crate. :wink:


I love my MIG100, although you have a noticable difference between that and a JCM 800, but for under 300, i'm not complaining.
My fav. amp, hands down is my vintage Twin....if you can get a good price for one of these, get it. the prices i've seen for any VOX, new or old, doesn't justify it.

i actually am playing through an old traynor yba-1 right now. I've got a yba-3 which is a great amp but the transformer is fried. In a perfect world, I spend spend the $1500 for an SVT and the several G to pay somebody to lug it around for me. My favorite amp I've ever owned is an old VOX AC-100. Finally got rid of it because it kept blowing up in the middle of shows. took someof the charm out of the amp. The omission of Vox in the poll is very upsetting.

Vox would be considered "Hiwatt... vintage" catagory. I maxed out the options.

VOX

VOX valvetronix 120/2x12. Has all you would ever need. I mostly play the AC30TB setting for clean to slightly dirty. The 800 setting with the tubescreamer model kills for a low end dirty sound. All you need is a volume pedal and you're set. Don't bother with that $180 vox pedal they try to make you buy.

Bogner Ecstasy. It's everything I need all in one box. Well, two... speakers help. 'Cause I swear the Shiva 2x12 combo weighs more than my Marshall 4x12s!

Twin has to be the ultimate amp hands down, but I play a 4-amp rig with the Twin, Power Chorus, Princeton Chorus and a Vibro Champ... Whatever amp you use, try running with multiple, it makes things sound so much better. Especially if you mix solidstate and tube and different speaker sets.

hey did you get an Ecstasy ?!?

I 'member when you were asking about my Shiva.

If so, that's cool. I'm glad for you. It's probably better for your style.
When you finally get something like that, it can be very inspiring.

My first Shiva 1x12 combo was 72lbs!
I turned it into a head and haven't looked back.
I just use (2) 1x12 cabs......I'm getting too old for that stuff. :wink:

I wound re-tubing my Boogie Mark IV with some Mullard reissues and NOS GE 6L6GCs a while back, and I've been running that ever since. They really brought the Mark IV to life, especially the GEs. They're the first 6L6 I've ever really liked.

There's some amazing solo tones in there in Class A mode that I'd love to use in a studio situation, but I can't really use it like that live, not if I want my rhythm work to have any clarity. The last drummer I worked with is so punishingly loud that 15 watts Class A isn't going to keep up and sound at all decent, even through a 4x12. I'm currently discovering the joys of the Rhythm 2 channel, with and without a boost for more classic rock-type crunch.
