    I pretty much keep the guitars down to a couple dozen at a time. As I am retired from gigging, I can no longer justify the expense. Every item on my list has earned its keep on the stage or in the studio. Now I can enjoy the art for art's sake.

I had a 1993 Classic 50, and it was quite the workhorse amp for gigging. It weighed a ton, but it served me well, for a lot of gigs. I got rid of it, because I wanted more gain, and ended up going the Mesa Boogie route from 1995 until 2000. I miss my old Classic 50 sometimes, but then I remember how much of a hassle it was to lug from my car to the stage.

    I also had a Gorilla I bought new shortly before I graduated from college in 1987, for $100. Yep, what they wrote in the Gorilla ads back then was true - nothing screams like a Gorilla!

    While I didn't have a Dual Showman, I did have a blackface '65 Showman, that I gigged with in a band back in 1990. Because it was basically a Twin Reverb in a head form, without the reverb, that thing was CLEAN sound-wise. Even if you cranked it up to 10 (when it was downright deafening), all it did was sound a little gritty. But it sure took pedals well. I got rid of it, because, it wasn't very linear volume-wise. At 1 or 2 on the volume control, I could hardly hear myself on stage. When I turned it up above 2 volume-wise, everybody complained that I was too loud! Ugh! It was all or nothing.

    Yes the '90s Peavy Classic 50 with 4-10" speakers and a slew of EL-84s and a fan. Sixty-six pounds for $660.00 out the door. I was working in a music store and we got Guitar Player magazine some time before they went on sale, so I got the inside scoop on what was new. When I read the review, I got on the phone and called another store with which I did business and ordered one immediately. I did the same for my original Music Man 112RD65, my original Rockman, and later my Rockmodule.

    And those Showman amps were wonderful. I played through a friend's Showman with the 1-15" JBL quite a bit. It was especially nice because of the tilt-back legs, IMHO one of Leo's best inventions. You're totally right about the volume controls; a big reason I like to use a Scholz Power Soak to get a little finer range on the volume aspect!

    Mine was the 2X12 version (I usually prefer 12s over 10s), with the blonde tweed covering (if I remember right, they also made a black tweed covered version back then - the Guitar Player review Classic 50 was in black tweed). When I used the dirt channel, my Classic 50's gain was dimed, and I ran the master volume at 7 - yep it was quite loud (blame it on "Bonzo Jr.", our drummer with the hammer hands). Like I said, it weighed a ton, but still a great amp. The only amp I had that weighed as much or more, was the Mesa Boogie Maverick 2X12 I had for a while in the late 90s (I should have kept that one - it was like a supercharged Vox AC30).

    I had the Rivera PRII in the early-80s that I just loved. Sometimes people criticize them but I loved that amp. I recorded a Christmas album in 1983 with a jazz group I was touring with. Played a 335 through it. We were listening to it today and my son (who's a musician and music major in college) commented on the tone. Great amp!

    I was delighted to hear jzjazz playing through his PRII in concert. I am sure we would all like to hear your Christmas album. I have often wondered how a 335 would sound through my amp.

    It was 37-years ago (which sounds like such a long time!). I bought the amp new at Thoroughbred Music in Tampa, FL. Back then, I was playing a '67 335, most of the time on the neck pup. I could get a nice full clean tone out of the PRII without too much break up by playing around with the master volume. I never messed with the push-pull tone controls nor would I switch to the "lead" channel very often. There's a lot of hate on some forums directed at this amp because it's such a different circuit from a classic PR. (Fender probably should have named it something else.) However, it always served me well. I remember that our sound man/road manager was with me when I bought it. Chances are he pushed me toward this model because of the direct out, which sounded good enough for me to send straight to the house, although we would put a SM57 on it as well.

    Clearly, none of you own enough guitar amps.
    You need one of these, in fact, you need this very amp:

    Sort of just one guitar amp, quilter micropro 200

    I also have a Roland micro cube up in the mountain cabin, so I guess that sort of counts.

    I have a Carvin BX micro bass amp it is really quite good, but I only use that to play bass.

    99% of the time I'm playing the quilter or the bass amp.

    Can you give us your take on the Little Jazz vs the Bud? Thanks!

    To my defence: all bought used and/or as restoration projects at bargain prices. The only amp I bought new is the AER Alpha and that was by far the most expensive amp. For what I paid for all these amps together I could perhaps just afford to buy a 1965 Deluxe Reverb (this is for in case my wife ever reads this :-)

    The grey Framus amp (late 60ies Strato 345) gets the most use nowadays.

    I had a Rivera era Princeton Reverb II amp. It was a great amp! The only reason I got rid of mine was due to the fact that at the time (1990), it was looking like 6V6 tubes were going extinct, and I didn't want to deal with the problem of retubing it down the road, especially since one of the 6V6s in mine, was starting to get iffy. I wouldn't mind another Princeton Reverb II, but they're going for a quite a bit more nowadays, than I paid for mine.
