    Ran one all tuber in the 80's next to a Marshall Town and Country (see pic)....was a great amp.




    I paid something like $1100 in 1980 or so for the Marshall brand new in Arizona somewhere.


    Picked up the Music Man somewhere in New Mexico around the same time:

      That reminds me, I have one of these:



      in my closet that's been needing to go to see a tech for something like 4 years now . It was an okay amp before it died on me, but not really for me.

          I had an AB switch and could also run together driven by my Roland Stereo Chorus tape delay. No...I do snax stuff now...those are long gone.

            I used to have this 50RD



            It was a cool little amp. Decent cleans and great reverb, but nothing really spectacular about it.

                I had a small combo, 2x10. Can't remember the model number. Wish I never got rid of it. Great amp.
                The community here was awesome but the digs & spirit of the place has been in decline ever since it became a business venture rather than a simple collective and this latest gong show really brought the chickens home to roost.Necessity is the mother of invention, ergo: www.guitarampboard.com.So long and thanks for all the fish, love izzy.

                    I love them. You can get any 70's tone straight up with no pedals. Here's a partial of my MM collection.MM Amps.jpg

                        I've got one that I love.

                        I was thinking of selling it, since 130 watts is a little much for the house, but my wife likes how it looks, so I guess I get to keep it AND get a lower wattage amp!01.JPG
