    Orange Rockerverb & Fender Bassman. Also considering a Rivera Pubster for portability.

    Picture says most of it, but it does have 2 more tubes than it should have and a non stock heavy duty transformer.

    This is my goto amp for all my guitars right now.
    It is basically a high end 130 watt mosfet amp with 2 x 12" Celestions and a PodXT built in that is programmable.

    It also does the most realistic SLO 100 I've ever heard.
    So instead of the SLO head and a 4 x 12 cab and a Fender 63' reverb and a delay pedal, I just reach over and hit a single on/off switch and play.
    The volume is also manageable too. I can play at any hour of the night and dial in the right volume or plug in headphones if necessary.
    If I want to play with a CD, it has the CD aux as well as another aux for a drum machine etc.

    It is simple to operate, stable as heck and sounds great plus it is a modeling amp.

    My 57' tweed clone screams too but has added bass with the 10" speaker I crammed in there.
    Cut the baffle and mounted the AD30VT speaker and couldn't be happier.
    I put a MOD 10 in the VOX.
    What a tight fit tho...

    I really like Line 6 gear. A tube half stack was great for years until I got tired of lugging it around and it breaking down all the time.

    Using a Line 6 Pod XT Live into a solid state amp is super reliable and versatile, in the sense of needing (or wanting) to shift between guitar tones on songs by different artists in the same set. Couldn't do that with the old JCM.

    If I were going out to play originals, my tone would be a lot more important to me... especially for improvising. I think I'd go JTM45 reissue into 1960A reissue, with a Tube Screamer, a Boss CE-2, and an MXR Dyna Comp.

    Cold, bad tone can ruin your inspiration pretty quick. Kind of like a bucket of cold water during sex. But on a real world gig, I don't do much improvising... just covers. Playing with close models of the tones people are used to hearing on the radio/CD is easier for people to digest. Digital modeling amps/pedal boards make that easier for me when I'm working.

    Ric, I think it's which ever SG you plug in..... if you have certain combinations, then which goes with which? That's an interesting concept........ but potentially expensive.

    Sadly, I meant "what SG?" as in "I don't own an SG anymore". :oops:

    ;D In that case, there can be an acception I suppose. The base importance is the amp end of the thread.......

    (I sometimes forget that everyone may not have an SG. But we still think maybe someday.)

    It's normally one of these:

    (T)race Elliot Velocette - usually used at home. The big one for gigs when I want to be LOUD!

    But, when the mood takes me, I might use this one at home. :)

    I'd like the chance to compare one day but for now the Wharfedales are fine.
    I imagine you really notice the difference with speakers when you really get to drive the amp. The AC30 always had enough headroom for me (on the stages I played on) to use it as a clean amp. Mind you, I once underestimated the size of a venue and only took the AC15. The amp sounded great and we had a whole new "aggressive" sound! ;D
