Borrowing from jefe's 'One guitar' post...

You must choose only one amp for general use. Pedals may be employed to supply extra flavors. What's your choice and why?

Fender deluxe reverb without question. Sounds good no matter what the guitar.

Twin Reverb. Cleans to burn. Loud enough for any situation. Takes pedals well. Works well with any guitar. Downfall is its weight. Other than that nuthin.....

I'd get back my Carr Rambler 210 if I could. Really the only amp I'd need till I stop plugging in.

I couldn’t really do it.

As applied to bass I’d keep the Genz Benz Shuttle 9.0 but I’d still need the three speaker cabinets SWR neo 2X10, Goliath 4X10 (David Eden) and my 15” Hartke.

I have two bass combos, neither one would be all purpose, but they work great in small to acoustic venues.

The Quilter Aviator for me. Lightweight. 100 watts per channel; plenty loud and more power than I'll ever need. It does clean and it does dirty, and it has a decent reverb. Pick it up along with a guitar and out the door I go.

I'm happy with my VHT 12/20RT. If it ever dies, I'll look for a DR Z Maz-18 JR.

My Allen Brown Sugar w/1-15" Weber California. Fabulous amp. Always sounds great. With David's extra RAW control, you can get way beyond classic Fender-style sounds. You can run either 6L6 or 6V6 tubes in it. Compact package. Ready to go...ready to rock.

Peegoo and Greg,

You *never, ever* see Quilter Aviators over here, but there was one on eBay last week that sold for £280 ($350) !!!! I don’t need another amp but I’m still beating myself up over that

Mesa Boogie tried to appeal to the Princeton crowd with that amp, but they still couldn't get less than eight knobs on the front panel. They're trying! :o)

Ayns, that is a STEAL. Wow.

Greg is using the 12" version, and I have the 8" combo (25 lbs). It's plenty punchy and still blisteringly loud if necessary. Players often ask, "what IS that amp?"

My Mesa Recto-Verb 25 would also work for me.

It seems like it has a bunch of knobs, but that’s only because both channels have full tone controls.
