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.

I have 6 amps, prefer my custom Blues Jr with dark green Tolex, wheat colored grille cloth , Cannabis speaker and some other goodies. Does everything I need and works with any guitar I have played through it from 5th Ave, Epiphone Elitist Byrdland, Ibanez jazz guitar, 2003 Hiway 1 Tele and others. 1 of 50 made.

I agree with one of the initial posters. The Fender Deluxe Reverb pretty much covers it all.

Let's assume you are looking for an amp that covers the 90% bell shaped curve and you aren't touring (in which case then a Twin is the 'one amp').

It's a good living room amp but also has no problem in a small to medium venue. The amp can be turned to about 4 to get at the amp's sweet spot. And it's very pedal friendly. Also it seems to cooperate with any guitar.

There is a reason it's standard equipment at any respectable studio.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that I have several amps that could be my only amp.

Our friend, sadly passed, Wicked Guitar (James Wilsey) shared with me once that he needed two:
For stage - Twin Reverb.
For Studio - Princeton Reverb.

For me, I am in the budg camp - a fender deluxe reverb (BF). Beautiful cleans, and with the right pedal, can render wide-glide gnarliness. In other words, it’s an eminently versatile appliance. And it doesn’t weigh 85 pounds!

Fender Deluxe Reverb although I usually take one of my (3) Princeton Reverbs to a gig.

I have 3 in this thread. It depends on the gig for me, Vox for the Beatleband gigs, Marsh BF Deluxe Reverb for roots stuff, Marshall Origin 50 to rawk.

The Marshall is getting the most play time at home. It amazes me how friendly it is with different guitars.. picked up a used Ibanez Johnny Smith arch top and it sounds unreal through it.

If I want to blow the roof off, I use my 1979 Lab
Series L5.

Good enough for B.B. King.

Had one outdoor gig where I got to turn my Twin up to 6 for about an hour. It was a religious experience.

I’ve got a SS amp that could be my only amp. It’s the latest version of Peavey transtube 212 special chorus. I did a speaker swap in it - and installed an Eminence em12 and a Texas Heat.

In fact, no pedals required with that amp. But it takes pedals well.

+1 on Katana 50.

Covers clean, dirty, acoustic, bedroom practice thru gig volume. Footswitchable, programmable and lightweight. And it sounds good.

From my existing stock I would say my Princeton Reverb II, which for all intents and purposes is more of a Deluxe Reverb clone. But it's my intention to someday get a Vintage Sound 15 which is a Princeton Reverb clone with a 12" speaker. I want on board trem and the AA1164 build, and nothing more.

If I am limited to current amps, it would by my Marshall DSL40C.
My favorite amp I have owned is a 1972 Deluxe Reverb.

As if it wasn’t apparent in my previous posts...


I’d have a hard time choosing from my current herd.

Supersonic 22. It is similar to the Deluxe Reverb but with some nice tonal options easily reached through its useful pedal.

If there were a Brown Vibrolux 10 watts that sounded like the 45 watt beast!
