• My amps through the years

    • My first amp was actually a Pilot tube amp for a record player. It only had RCA inputs, so I got a 1/4″ to RCA adapter and plugged my guitar in. The speaker was something my dad built into a cabinet, I think it was a 12″ speaker. The amp has two 6v6 tubes, so it’s similar to a Fender Deluxe reverb. I still have the amp, but the speaker is long gone !

    • Next up was a Danelectro DM 25 “piggyback”, which I think had the same tube configuration as the Pilot.  The head fit into the back of the 12″ speaker cabinet, I just saw one somewhere after many years.

    • I found a blackface Fender Deluxe Reverb in the want ads, and bought it for $75 in Tarrytown NY. Of course I wish I still had it!

    • Bought a blackface Fender Bassman amp with matching cabinet. It had JBL D120 Speakers. I had it right up until 2013.

    • Silverface Fender Bassman with matching cabinet. Pretty sure it had JBL D120 speakers also.

    • Marshall 100 watt Plexi. Bought this along with a bunch of cables and mics from the Alice Cooper Band. They were cleaning house. Awesome amp, but too loud for the little clubs we were playing. Yeah, I could use it now.

    • Mesa Boogie. Serial number 301.  Saw Santana using one, so I had to have it.

    • Marshall 4-12″ cab. Rescued it from a pile of wood in a rental house in Ithaca NY. Put a 12″ greenback in it and blocked up the other three holes. Ended up putting the other three greenbacks in it.

    • Marshall 50 watt combo with 2-12″ greenbacks and 2104 head.

    • Marshall 50 watt head (early 70’s vintage, small script logo)

    • Marshall 50 watt head (early 70’s vintage, small script logo) with matching 4-12 slant cab.

    • Lab Series L5 100 watt solid state amp.

    • Fender Red Knob “The Twin” amp. Great-sounding amp.

    • Naylor Super Drive 60 with 2-12 cab loaded with Vintage 30’s.

    • Naylor  2-12 cab loaded with Naylor speakers.

    • Naylor Super Club 38 with 1-12 100 watt Naylor speaker.

    • Sewell Custom 50 watt with 12″ Altec 417 8c.

    • Roland Cube 60 with stock 12″ speaker.

    • 1957 Fender Pro amp with 1-15 Jensen. The holy grail.
