    The Gear Page readers recommended hand-wired boutique amps, unsurprisingly.

    The latest amp I added to my collection is a 5F1 Champ with a modern Jensen P10R speaker. It was a kit I built during the pandemic with Hammond transformers and I housed it in a slightly larger solid pine cab (a cut-up IKEA bedside table, LOL).

    It’s a wonderful little amp that makes every guitar sound good! It has a hard to describe punchy thing going on and the mids have a piano-like quality that lift the tone and make playing more effortless somehow. You have to experience it to truly understand I guess….. with my Boss FRV-1 Reverb in front of it this is my best jazz amp for when the volumes stay low.

    Here it is wirh my DIY tele and sitting next to my main gigging amp, my trusty and very rare vintage Framus Strato 345:

    Brotherhood! People come into town and they ask me if they can use the Princeton II and when they're done, they ask me if I'll sell it to them. What a voice, eh? I put a hemp speaker in mine. It was my 'forever partner' amp until I moved into a tiny apartment. At that point, the wife made strict space allowances and the Princeton comes out of the storage space for gigs, my house amp is a Schertler. Tiny amp, all the sound I need.

    Brotherhood indeed! Mine is too loud for my tiny apartment, but still produces tone at low volume. I am considering renting a church hall for a few hours just to play loud.

    Sounds like a great idea. My PRII came with a factory Fender branded EV12. It would likely break a few of the stained glass windows in my church if cranked to an sinful volume.

    Mine also has the Electro-Voice speaker (which, according to the service manual, has the same cone and voice coil as the EVM-12S-Series II, and the spider used in the Force 12, DL-15M, DL-15W and a few others; or so I am told).

    My amp is one of the Super Pro series, with a dovetailed oak plank cabinet, a front panel in Champagne Beige and Choco Brown, and matching grille cloths and knobs. I think it would be fitting for a church, but I will bear those windows in mind.

    Have seven here at the moment:

    Contemporary solid state:

    Henriksen Blu Six
    Mark Acoustic
    Fishman Loudbox Mini
    Yamaha THR10
    Katana Mini

    1960s tube:

    Gibson Falcon
    Fender Vibrochamp

    Nowadays, I mainly play out at jam sessions (jazz, funk, bossa, blues) or open mics. Most clubs provide at least one decent backline amp (Roland, Peavey, Yamaha, Fender, AER, Vox), so I usually don’t need to bring my own amp. When I do, such as sitting in at friends’ hotel gigs, the Henriksen does the trick.

    The Yamaha is a good grab and go amp for playing informally at a friends’ home, and the Katana fits into the pouch of my travel guitar on road trips with the Mrs.

    When playing at home for fun in the music room I usually use the Fender and Gibson with a tape echo and a Sole-Mate spring reverb or the Blu as a platform for messing with pedals. When we have guests over in the living room, the Mark works well with the Roland piano and U-bass, or if someone brings along their string bass, and the Fishman is more than adequate for an archtop/flattop and a mic.

    Hi guys please beware that this user radioarc is in fact a scammer. He scammed me into thinking I was buying a Polytone, and ended up taking my money and running. Please beware

    I own too much amps, but I'm the type who tends to keep things for hard times which might come or not. Who knows.

    Dynacord Amigo (German copy of a Champ from '71) - the one I started with learning guitar
    Dynacord Twen II (German copy of a Princeton from beginning of 70ties)
    Fender Concert '84 - stationary amp in the rehearsal place of my bigband, sometimes substituted by the following one
    PCL Vintage Amp VA1956 with an EV12 from '84 (German copy of a Boogie Mk II, a hidden gem if you know how to service it)
    DV Mark "raw dawg" hybrid top 150W - the amp for gigs due to its low weight, together with a small 12" box

    Self built amps:
    Princeton clone - my daily amp for practicing at home. The amp for the lonely island
    A Fender type combo in a Princeton housing with a 12in speaker, 40W - also used for gigs, only 15 kg.

    Gone but not forgotten:
    Marshall Superlead 100 from '71 - days of R'R are gone, too loud and heavy for Jazz
    Musicman 110RD50 - nice amp, replaced by self built 40W combo

    How does the MArk Acoustic AC101H sound with a jazz guitar?
    I think it should be pretty nice.

    Here’s all of mine:

    Solid state transistor combos:
    Polytone Mini Brute I (with 8 ohm Celestion G12-100 speaker. It’s heavy!)

    Peavey transtube ‘Red Stripe’ (Now with a Jensen Neodym magnet speaker).

    Fender Sidekick 10 (I replaced the shitty 8 in. Fender speaker with a 8 inch Jensen Special Design.) It still sounds bad. Hissy and woolly.

    Solid state/tube? head:
    Vox MV50 Clean - Nutube

    Tube/valve heads:
    Laney CUB Supertop

    Victory VC35 Deluxe


    I’ve mostly used the Victory.

    Now I use the Polytone.
    I managed to coax a great tone from it with the aid of several pedals.

    One very big one. Well a Marshall JVMHJS (Satriani modded version) full stack in limited blue. Sounds glorious and does most things with a few turns of knobs.

    I’ll be shortly looking for a jazz oriented small amp.
