    I'd choose a real Marshall 1968 50w Plexi with 60's Mullard tubes and of course a pair of 4x12 60s Marshall cabs.

    Worth every penny

    Do you know anything about amps? Seems like you might be new to them. You're definitely "new".

    "Only" 10,000 to spend on an amp?
    It's possible to spend more (on something that's not vintage with provenance)????

    Fezz, I’m joking with you, I honestly thought it was obvious:), the spirit of this thread is to just have some fun while talking gear.

    Oh I know you're joking. But... to be honest...I really think "cork sniffer" is a full blown derogatory thing. I own a '65 Strat and a '71 Les Paul Custom. Does that make me a "cork sniffer"?

    Back before the internet, if you had nice things (amps, instruments) you were either lucky or worked hard for them. ;)



    You can't touch a real Dumble for 10k. That's kinda crazy. I think Clapner paid 70k for one. But for some folks, 70k is pocket change.
    In Clapner's case, I think he earned it. :D

    I never considered cork sniffing derogatory, it’s just humorous nothing more, not an attack on a persons character or anything bad as far as I’m concerned. Btw the term as I know it from 20 or so years of guitar forums has always referenced new amps which is why I started this amp thread. If I did buy a Carr or something along those lines and someone called me a cork sniffer I’d just laugh with them, why not.

    I don't think owning a 65 strat and a 71 les paul custom makes you a cork sniffer. I think it means you have great taste in guitars.:)

    1962 Fender Vibrolux Reverb.. always wanted one.. don't really know why.. I have played through one though and enjoyed the sound emitted.. I've seen them go for up to 3k but also a little over 1k.. so plenty of change.. :)
