I was wondering what make of amplifiers people out there in CBG land are playing and why they bought them.Did you buy a solid state amp or a tube amp? Did you make an amp? Are you happy with it?
If money was no object,what amp do you think would be suitable for a hand made guitar which may have cost just a few shekels to make?
100 watts!...That's pretty loud,i would imagine.I have a Peavey bass amp which is 20 watts and I rarely move the volume dial beyond 2....
Here's one I made earlier...this is Hollowbelly's touring and recording amp.
Here's the Pignose - we are out of stock but more are on their way as I type...
I love my Roland Microcube...but here's a new..and cheaper contender...
I like second hand guitar amps from eBay or Facebook market place (FBMP). Due to the weight they are often local collection only which reduces the number interested. This means you can get some great deals.
Current favourite is the Vox Valvetronic AD30VT from FBMP for £40. Numerous effects, a control on the back to reduce output if playing at home late at night. It has a valve preamp circuit running into a solid state circuit. They often turn up on ebay. It is mains power only.
I had one of these a while ago...Good bit of kit. I have a Vox Pathfinder 15 which is currently my favourite..
