    Howdy folks! So what are you all plugging your Strat or other guitars into?

    Here's mine: an AmpTramp BF/Plexi 'Woody', 10 watt, single ended, EL34 driven, combo with two channels. One side is classic blackfaced based, and the other plexi based. Runs a 12" Weber 1265 speaker. Separate eq's, gain and master volume. Handbuilt by a friend of mine. She's a one of a kind!

    I'm currently using a couple of silverface Fenders...a Princeton Reverb and a Champ.

    The PR is loaded with a Reverend Alltone and had the Stokes mod before I received it. It's the perfect amp for me.

    The Champ is sporting a Weber Sig8S AlNiCo that I just put in a few weeks ago. I haven't really had time to break it in yet, but I'm very happy so far. I also have a 2x10 cab loaded with a couple of very old Rola AlNiCos that I run the Champ through a lot...the combination is absolutely killer.

    i have a peavey classic 30 with a mix of sovtek's and groove tubes in the preamp and groove tubes in the power section, and an eminence swamp thang in place of the stock speaker. sounds good, but i still want a fender blues deville or a bassman. it's my first and only tube amp and a far cry from what it replaced... a fender ultra chorus (which i still have).

    Within the last two weeks, I purchased a mid 80s Peavey VT Classic. 50 watts, two 12's, a pair of 6L6 GC's in the power amp section with a solid state pre-amp. It has a clean sound that I really enjoy. I'm still exploring my options for getting a good dirty sound out of it.

    For the Strat I actually prefer my Marshall JMP 50 plexi combo, because it has more gain on the first channel than the Fender Bassman. But the Strat plugged into the Fender Bass channel offers enough distortion most of the time (except for heavier ZZ Top rhythm parts), especially with more treble and presence than 0 which is my usual Les Paul setting.

    At home and in small clubs I use my Mesa Boogie Mark IIB with self-built EVM-12L Thiele cab though, because it also sounds good at low volumes.

    DRRI. I might sell it to purchase a Vox AC30CC head.

    1965 Princeton Reverb
    I owned all these (plus a Vox AC-15 reissue, two '65 Vox Cambridge Reverbs one tube and one solid state and a 1968 Pro Reverb)... but then sold all but the Princeton Reverb
    The Deluxe Reverb is a DRRI and I never really liked it. The '65 Champ was a fun little toy but I sold it because I never played it after getting the PR.

    The PR has a 12" Celestion Vintage 30 speaker in a repo aged baffle/grill/logo from Rogers (the original 10" baffle/grill is safely stored away).

    I have almost as many amps as I have guitars. They are all very different, and I use them for different jobs.

    Fender SF Champ - great for all kinds of stuff

    Fender SS Bronco - I use this when I teach guitar class

    Fender Princeton Chorus DSP - for jazz, and other things, very versatile

    Vox Pathfinder SMR15 mini-stack, 2 x10 cab, fun toy

    Crate V3112T - for when it's time to get serious, great for jazz, blues, rock...everything.

    Crate Vintage Club 5212 -- for those times when only an 80 pound amp that's never not too damn loud will do

    I run everything through a Marshall AVT100. It gives me every sound I could ever want, and it does it very well...

    Let's see:

    -early '60s Gibson Falcon that I inherited from my Dad. Sweet old amp.

    -'97 Fender Blues Junior. Sounds great and has never given me some of the problems I read about on other forums. Swapped the original tubes for JJs from Eurotubes a couple of years ago and that is about it.

    -mid '60s Kalamazoo Model 2. Nice little 5-watter that was Gibson's budget line.

    -early 2000s Line Six Spider 210. I got it mainly to run my drum machines through, but I do mess with the modeling stuff occasioanally. Sounds pretty good for a solid state, actually.

    -mid-90s Fender Mini-Twin. The amp I use when I play electric guitar on the couch. I have used it when travelling, too.

    -future: I have been GASsing for a Peavey Classic 30 or Delta Blues lately.
