Agreed. The Champ's archilles heel.
has to be dimed to sound good.
I used to play small gigs with a 5f2a Princeton in a cab with a 12" Red Fang. Guitar drums bass and organ. It was actually too loud. LOL
Thought maybe it might be some black magic IC tube that achieved the perfect curve of breakup....

Knowing what I know now about music gear, I'd buy 4-6 of my favorite model, and keep the best sounding two. Fender stuff especially, no 2 ever sound exactly the same and there's always that ONE that just sings and there's always that one that can't be made to sound good.
There is no "one" amp for 10k because the best sounding ones are much cheaper, and the real cork sniffers are 5x that
I‘d get a TR Sterling Signature. One from the initial run. Worth more than my car, so pressure would be hopefully finally high enough to get me practicing more
10k is the eastern bunker wall in my future Alaskan compoun ...home.
Once I saw a dude at a bar playing with this same amp. He was doing a SRV kind of impersonation. I thought the amp looked cool and had all the potential to sound glorious, but the guy playing it somehow managed to make it sound like sch!t...which is a feat in itself.
The player makes the sound. But you know that my friend.
In my opinion, there's no amp that's actually worth $10K. Rarity and historical significance may push prices into the stratosphere for some amps, but high prices don't equate to exponentially better sound than many reasonably priced amps. I've been through a lot of amps in my life, including vintage Fenders and a few boutique amps.
I've settled on a 1967 Fender Vibrolux Reverb as my ideal amp. Prime examples of that amp are now going for $3000 or more, which I also think is ridiculous. I paid $1800 for mine a few years back. I thought that was too much then, even though I knew I was getting a deal based on prices at the time.
Everyone's ideal amp is going to be subjective.
I'd get a cherry blackface Vibro Champ and spend the leftover on Mad Dog and Thunderbird.
Wow, $10,000 on amps? Ok, I'll try.
As I already own a Tiny Terror head and a Rocker 30 head, I'd like to add to my collection:
Orange Dark Terror - $650
Orange Jim Root Terror - ~$450 on Reverb
Orange Rocker 15 Terror - $730
Orange Brent Hinds Terror - $750
Orange OR15 - $700
Orange Dual Terror - $900
Orange AD30 - ~$800 on Reverb
Orange TH30 - $1200 new
Orange OR50 - ~$1250 on Reverb
Orange Rockerverb 50 MKIII - $2000 new
With the rest I'll see if I can score an old, beat up Orange 4x12. Yeah, that'll do nicely.
I'd buy a used Frontman 15g and have about $9,980.00 bucks left over for some custom made picks.
Do you like orange amps?
On Reverb today, for $8900:
VOX AC100 Super DeLuxe 1965 JMI Beatles Model
Crystal tubes and gold chassis yo
I get its an awesome rig, but I am more into the cart it is on. It left me wondering if that was the cart my bags were on in the Dusseldorf Airport which suddenly disappeared.
Tax. Don't forget tax and maybe shipping which will push you over the 10K.
Shoulda said in the title (*tax, shipping and prep not included) I feel just terrible about this, just terrible.
