    They are awesome amps, I have an Express 5:50 Plus and it is so versatile, from Fender cleans to Marshall roar and all the Mesa tones in between , for home I use the five watt setting and you can play really quiet or you can scream like a demon at low volume , best amp I've ever had . I could have gotten the mark five but the Express does everything I want it to do..

    The T50 puts out a lot of good sound for a great price IMO. Some nice breakup on its own plus takes pedals well and has an effects loop. The cab has a stereo setting to input to each speaker separately. The head is not the style for you if you like vintage, though. Works for me though. IMG_6523.JPG IMG_6540.JPG

    Thank you :)

    I ended up trading the DC 3 in for a Dual rec about a month and a bit back

    I have the same USA Pro Strat. Vintage single coils and a matching zebra humbucker. Gorgeous tones. A dream to play. Think it was a GC FSR in the USA...and the same with Andertons in the UK. Somewhere between an American Special and American Standard price-wise.

    It’s the best sounding amp I’ve had. I had a Twin Tweed RI hand wired with Mercury Magnetics transformers, Vox AC30 CC2 and a Custom Princeton Reverb and this amp is the best tone wise to my ears. It sounds great at low volume of 3-4 and is very touch sensitive but not as touch sensitive as the Twin.

    I was worried the rear knobs would bother me but I’ve not really had any issue. Since it’s one tone I kind of set that and use pickups, tone and volume knobs to vary the sound. I tend to leave the verb and trem basically set and use the foot switch to turn them on and off.

    I'm really into the early Blackline faceplate Silverface Drip Edge amps as if you can't tell by the picture. It's what I had growing up and in a band back then. The Deluxe Reverb and Pro Reverb were manufactured in 67 which are essentially Blackface amps that had the new Silverface cosmetic look introduced for the 68 models. The Bandmaster Reverb is one of the earliest 68 produced. All have the first version of SF grill cloth that was only used for a short time and replaced with a different version about mid 68. All handwired tube amps, original RCA, and Telefunken tubes, JBL D120F and Jensen C12NA speakers. All have been kept in pristine condition over the years and are maintained by myself. Just can't let the past go, it was a great time for Rock N Roll and and a lot of good memories.

    Pretty pleased with my rig! Show off you say...

    Peavey Encore 65, tube (ss rectifier), awesome freakin' tone. 2x 6L6's, 3x 12ax7, 1x 12a(t I think?)7. Replacement Warehouse ET65 4 ohm speaker.

    The Strat is pretty awesome too, MIM Satin Stratocaster from '03 or '04 (I stripped most of the paint off), replacement neck since I wore the frets down to nubs and it was cheaper than a refret, dirt cheap Amazon.com "loaded alnico 5 pickguard" with a nice GFS alnico 2 bridge pickup (still can't bring myself to use it despite that and it being connected to a tone control...) Full sized pots and nice beefy 5-way switch also from GFS.
