  • What Was Your First Tube Amp

    I'm sure most of us had a SS amp for the first one. I had a few. My Rickebacker SS was pretty nice. My first tube amp was a 100W Carvin XV212 combo
    It was a great amp that I kept for a few years. The guy I sold it to loved it so much they he bought a second one for his son

            My first amp was a Sysonics combo from JC Penny's.

            My first real tube amp was a Laney GH50L with matching 4x12 cab.
            I didn't know anything about tubes at the time.....basically sold it because it wasn't loud enough clean.....since I was using ****************ty gain pedals exclusively. I wish I still had ass amp.
            good deals with: nearly everyone.

                      i liked it , but at teh time it just wasnt loud enough for a 19 year old motorhead fan.

                              A Fender PJ that I bought off Crusty...up til then I'd played through tubes but been too cheap to ever buy one.
