With humbuckers and single coils aplenty on Tokai's, I was wondering what was everyones favourite Tokai and Amp combination and WHY?

I just picked up a 1964 Selmer Treble and Bass 50w head, and I simply cant believe how good it sounds (compared to how shagged it looks!)

81' JCM 800 50 watt Marshall with a Marshall 4/12" slant cab. THE sound of Rock N Roll .

'69 Marshall 50w or 100w for higher gain and a JTM45 for the big round sound.

Well, I actually got my LS-80 (with SD alnico Pro II, according to the seller) yesterday, but I have been playing it A LOT through a 1976 Boogie mk1, along with some Allman Brothers records.

I have allways tried to get Dickey Betts low-gain, still sustaining tone (like "Blue sky" on Eat a peach), and this is real close !

I will have to get my hands on some Altecs or JBLs, and I?ll probably be there....

I tried the guitar on an 1982 Boogie mk2B for a minute.... Sounded good, but that is a totally diffrent amp from the mk1.

My '63 Vox AC30 is sweet and mellow. My '79 Fender Twin reverb has the biggest, most wonderful clean sound on the planet. Either/both played with my '75 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe or my '82 Springy Sound.

Currently using an '87 JCM800 50w dual-channel Marshall with the gain at about 3. It's a 1*12 combo with a celestion v30. Thinking of adding another v30 in a closed-back 1*12 cab to create a mini-stack

Tokai love rock with alnico ii pro pups.

Kind of an ACDC/GnR rock sound mostly.

Well as Barry knows, I?m fortunate enough to have a very early Marshall 18W 2x12, which I?ve had for nearly 30 years, and that?s pretty near my ideal sound for the early Blues stuff I play, eg BB, Albert, Freddy, Otis, and then later stuff from Roy Buchanan, Clapton, Beck & so on. But really I?m happy with any decent amp .

Ian.

The Vox ac-15 & ac-30 are the best amps out there!

As I've rattled on before : for me, it's a maple-fretboard Goldstar through a 96 Fender Custom Vibroluxe Reverb, recently retubed - no need for pedals - it's twang and klang, baby!

Steve

p.s. I have one of those Smokey practice amps (the ones in cigarette packs) that's cheezy but fun - it actually sounds frightening as a preamp through the Fender

Cause I bought all tube 3 channel preamp "U-sound" (Russian made) now I play the following:
LS85Q (or ESP Horizon NT) -> preamp-> Return of Marshall AVT50

And know I think to buy something like a T.C. Elec. G-major and insert in between preamp and combo's power amp.

Hi pb, ..Ha,ha??well your dead right, it?s not versatile at all, and Line-6 wouldn?t be remotely interested, LoL! All sounds like Beano, but it suits me just fine (no pedals) . Have a safe & happy Christmas.

Ian.
