I also have a Fender Pro Reverb II (1x12), a Marshall 80 watt 1x12, a 100 watt Marshall w/ a 4x10 cab, a Behringer V-Tone 2x10 modeller amp. The Fender/Behringer/Peavey seem very versatile. The Marshalls only know how to do a couple things. They do those things very well... but seem limited. I've come to feel the same way about some of my guitars too. Some just feel better tone-wise, for certain things. Recording makes it more evident to me sometimes. When you're looking for certain sounds, tones. The Behringer V-Tone was a big surprise for the money. It was on sale for like $149. Lots of bang for the buck there and it is an amp that'll do about anything.

2005-12-27T21:03:32+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: Marshall, Mesa, or Fender?]]> I purchased a new Reissue Blues Deluxe about 2 months ago. If you are looking for a clean full sounding amp for jazz and blues this one is your baby. The clean channel is sweeeet. The overdrive channel does not really give you an over the top overdrive but at higher volume is not too bad. I am using a Digitech Bad Monkey overdrive pedal in front for lower volume.
Don't waste your money on a Marshall. All they are good for is screaming distorted guitar. I have owned and dumped 2 of them. Am not real familiar with Boogie but the ones I have heard sound decent but overdriven...

2005-12-12T14:58:45+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: Marshall, Mesa, or Fender?]]> the tone is somewhere between a super reverb and a twin and with an overdrive boost (my Fulltone OCD) i can get a fat Bassman tone on the clean ch. and classsic Jimi voodo Child tone on the drive ch. the Drive ch. is creamy loads of harmonics and perfect for classic rock without the pedal.

Cons: when you first turn it on its kinda dry. BUT it take the tubes about an hour to get real hot and start to push that classic fender tone. Once i get to that point i never want to turn it off.

I decided to go with something from the Fender line of reissues. From what I could research T-Bone favored the Bassman which Fender has a couple of "clones" out there - the Deville and Deluxe (not the HotRod) that I am going to go audition. The price tag tetters the top end of what I want to spend on amp, but I don't suspect I will need to buy another for a long, long, long time. Plus, it's Christmas!

On that guitar model suggestion, I located this link as I was doing my homework,, and learned alot about the vintage Gibson models. Great site!

IMHO, if you can find a Supro Thunderbolt, your quest will be over.
