Here's my list of amps since starting out 30 years ago & what I thought of them...
Marshall 50 Plexi Head & 4x12 cost around ?150 for the lot.
Just couldn't use it loud enough to sound good, but wish to God I'd kept it.
Music Man HP 2x10 Phase model.. Horrible. Bright & scratchy
Music Man HD 1x15 EV. Awsome creamy sound, but received an electrical surge in a thunder storm & never sounded the same again.
Marshall JMP 50 MV 2X12 combo. The best. Superb early Clapton to chimey Hendrix & SRV.
Mesa Boogie. Calibre Series 30 & 20 combo's. Mid rangey mush.
Orange OR80 2X12. ?100 Restoration project, Fantastic & Creamy, but had annoying hum that even Matamp couldn't get rid of.
Fender Bassman 1966 B/F head !!?200!! Big chimey. superb.
Selmer Ally front T&B 50 head ?110. Current gigging head with 1x12 cab housing Fane Blue Alnico Axiom speaker (the ultimate speaker Get one, ?150 ) Unbelievable combination for the money
late 60-70's Laney plexi head 60 PA version recent bargain, getting serviced. Hope it's ok.
Recently borrowed singer's Peavey Classic 30. Not very rugged & roadworthy compared to the old classics, but sounded awsome.
Unfortunately sold everything off over the years except current Selmer.
Only regret is selling Marshall JMP 50 Combo. It was superb, but back problems prevail, although, I'll be looking for another soon.
Any of you guys remember these amps ????
