    I'll get to the high end when I have proper pics. On the low end, I have a bunch of small/practice amps that I've put to work in different ways, mostly through my Mackie Onyx 1220i mixer. (For the money, really good pres and interface, btw).

    I use a pair of Fender Frontman 10Gs as low quality monitor/PAs in my music room. I'm looking at some proper replacements, but for right now, free > $300.

    I also have a pair of Marshall MG 10" combos that I use with my Trio+ for the bass/drum 'stereo' output. (I did a video once where I installed an external speaker jack in one, so one I have going through a 1x12 V30 for a little more thump.)

    I also have a Champion 20 that I've fiddled with and a Mustang I V.2 for fiddling in the family room. It's no Katana, but it's small and has a lot of upside.

    I used to want to get rid of these kinds of amp, but I find they can be really useful, especially when in a pinch.

    Also, I learned a lesson (prompted by Phil McKnight)--if you keep buying and selling something, you should keep it next time, because it's a sign that it's useful sometimes, and it costs to much to keep replacing the same thing.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, as you know I was super impressed with the Vox MV50 Boutique that I wanted to get the "AC" version, yesterday I picked this beauty up

    VOX Mini Superbeetle
    [​IMG]

    This this Freekin amazing - it's basically the MV50 "AC" with Reverb and Tremolo and sounds fantastic (though I will say that the speaker may get changed out? Any ideas on a great 10 inch mid priced speaker?) I actually ran at a gig last night "mic'd" and it got Peter Green's Fleetwood sound (peter used a VOX AC50 as well as a VOX AC100 (the Superbeetle is a homage to the AC100 during 1967 - 1968) perfectly. I think I may get a 2x12 cab made in VOX livery so I can run it at the full 50watts

    New (old) Amp Day for me. Picked up a used Bugera 333XL. This thing has balls to spare. Also picked up some metal racks to organize my amp heads and such.

    I miss my 1960 infinium. It was too loud and I left the band I was in shortly after moving and haven’t joined one since

    Yeah it's extremely loud, if I didn't have a power soak it wouldn't be viable :shock:
    Over the years I have tried and owned many tube amps. Bugera catches a lot of hate unfairly due to their first batches that came out (to which they did fix) but they work great for me. I can't justify gibson/marshall prices as I don't gig anymore and just play at home. Are the bugeras as road worthy as some other brands? No idea but they fit into my budget and allow me to play around with different amps.
