I like the amps I've got, naturally.

1) Ampeg V4 (with an Ampeg B25 cab) from '72.
2) A newish Fender Pro Jr.

They each have very nice cleans especially when I plug the SG Classic into the ABY box and play 'em both together -- just for messing in the home studio. Any other V4 fans here in SG-land?

Hey doesn't Van Hagar er Sammy Hagar use crate amps. Or is that association what gives crate the turn off factor. I must admit it thou I actually liked a few songs off NOT FOR SALE :oops: There's a small crate combo on the CD back cover I wonder if he recorded with it?
