Ok, let's try this one guys:

2. Post pictures of them
3. Explain us shortly why exactly would you won't these two amps


Let's see some amps and hear some thoughts about them! smile.gif

smile.gif hehe, well, for me -

1) The Mesa Boogie Road King

- Versatile, aggressive enough and very fit for all the things I play



- Almost anything from AER - the greatest acoustic amps I've ever listened to biggrin.gif they are simply heavenly



I've heard about the AER and heard one live when I met Tim Thompson - ( fingerstyle acoustic guitar champion in 2008 in USA) that amp sounded simply stunning and so so clean, bright and yet deep.

They are very expensive but, the tone is worth the money without any question! here's Tim performing through an AER Compact 60

I guess the ideal would be 1 Marshall JVM and one practice amp, so I don't have to haul my half stack everywhere smile.gif

2 x Line 6 DT50 4x12 Digital/Two All Tube Head Amps + Cabs
to go with the PodHD500

You can link these babies together as much as you want (wet/dry/wet) and they detect each other for stereo sound (left/middle/right) and all sync with the PodHD tone effect! Would love three of them but they are rather expensive.

I would probably have that Randall amp with the modular (not modelling, theres a difference wink.gif) preamps. That way I can have three different amp models in each amp. So that would be a total of six amps biggrin.gif

Each module has two 12AX7's and circuitry similar to the amp its trying to replicate.

For me, it has to be Super Lead and Twin, new amps do not have so natural sound, I've tried many amps, and these (although they may seem like often choice) are really among the greatest sounding machines ever made:
