Modern Gretsch Guitars

The other half.


The other half of your guitar is the amp. A poor amp will ruin the potential of a great guitar. I feel you need to spend as much on a good amp as you do a guitar. What amp are you using?


Soon to be the 6163 Executive!

...I'll be upgrading from a Fender Hot rod...I'm fairly sure I'll be happy with my decision. 8-)


Engl Classic Tube 50 head on a late 60's Bandmaster cab.


Mostly my 1960 Tweed Deluxe but if I need a bit more power I use my '65 Deluxe. My '63 Blond Bassman hasn't been used in a while. It's just too big and loud.


'63 blonde bandmaster for the most part. Otherwise my BDRI or -in the livingroom- a '71 bandmaster reverb.:D

And I'm building my own amp now.


I'm using the same amp that was bought when my '59 Annie was bought, a Gibson GA 15 RVT from 1966. but it's a liitle old to take out of the house. so, I'll use my Crate G60 for outside of the house.


Mesa Boogie Subway Rocket. 2 channel. I quit using my pedal board a year ago, and now I just plug into the amp. So much easier to prepare for a gig.


Probably won't like my amp ,,, but I do. Line 6 Flextone III XL. took me 3 yrs to get it right, but when I did. she is really nie, has stuff built in and can get great sounds outta the SSUGR. Yup Went through a Fender Deville and PV c50 but they all needed more than just amp and guitar. so the L6 has done me well. My worthless 2cents

de Lisle 15P

15 watts. 2 X EL84; 12ax7 - EF86 - 12AT7. Independent gain controls for the 12ax7 and EF86 in the pre-amp. Tri-Pent switch for the EF86. Bass, Contour, Treble. Defeatable MV. Sounds lovely with a T-Rose plugged through a Dyno Brain and a DM3.


Carr makes some great amps. A guy I used to play with had a Slant 6V that was outstanding. Let us know what you end up with.


After being high on my Bucket List for over 50 years, I have a Standel 25L15.

Carr amps are very fine instruments. I've had some experience with a Carr Rambler and give it VERY high marks!


Nice, Tonyb 8-).

1966 Ampeg Gemini 2 and an Ibanez TBX65R I just play at home.


Should arrive tomoro.. Princeton clone, 12 watts, Brownface Tremolo, Blackface style tonestack, SS Rec. Clean all the way up!
