    I mostly use a Traynor YCV-20 with jj's from eurotubes.com and a Weber ceramic Blue Dog. For playing around the apartment I have a 50's Lectrolab R200b 3.5 watter.

    A twin's loud (and Freaking heavy), but you'll probably never look back!

    I've also got a GA-5 from Gibson (mojo) for a lil dirt, and for yer basic clean, a 65 Reissue Twin Reverb with 2 x 12 Jensen C12Ks. Yum.

    How do you get the photos to show within the post rather than as a link?

    I'm so technologically challenged nowadays that I feel as old as my mother used to be when she couldn't switch her video on!!

    I see you're using Photobucket. Just click in the IMG file at the bottom and that will allow you to upload your pictures.

    Whatever I'm in the mood for. Here are a couple:

    [​IMG]

    Left is a JTM-45 clone I built for a customer on top of a purple '68 Marshall 4 x 12 w/pre-rolas. Right is my '65 JTM-45 on top of a Blockhead 4 x 12.

    Yeah, I would too. I'd ditch that Line 6 in a second if that were my choice. It is hard to beat a Twin Reverb IMO.

    For outdoor shows with no mic-ed amps, I use a Peavey Valveking 212, just for its shear power. 100 Watts of tube distortion. Pretty good sounding amp for the price, and you'll never need more distortion even if you played in Napalm Death.

    For clubs and outdoor shows with a soundman, I use a Traynor Custom Valve 50 1x12. Awesome sounding amp. Its voiced like an old Marshall combo. I'm hoping to get the extension cab for my birthday.

    Yeah, the Bassman is always a great solution!

    73 SFVC
    Vox Pathfinder 15R

    The only effect I really use is a EH Holy Grail Plus. I use it with the SFVC and live with the on board reverb on the Pathfinder. If it's late I'll sometimes play through a DigiTech RP80 and headphones.

    Most of the time these days I play through a Li'l Dawg D-Lux:

    or a Gibson GA-5:

    I also have a Traynor YCV20WR and a Vox AD30VT, but I don't use these as much lately.

    Don't have any pics, but a Fender 112 ('92) and a Bassman LTD Reissue. Play them in parallel. I've always like the multiple amps in parallel sound, rounds it out. The Bassman gives good volume and the 112 rounds it out a bit (Bassman can seem REALLY bright at times) and the 112 is good for adding a bit of reverb.
