  • What's your favorite or recommended 1 x 12 combo amp?

    Title says it all. I just think it's time to survey the crew on this.



    Take all things into consideration that are important to you, whether that be tube/solid state, affordable/mid/upper-end/or boutique.



    I was just thinking about my 1 x 12 buddies and think there's something missing. It could be that I would be nominating my old Fender Super 112. Great clean and more modern over drive tones, but it was unfortunately also by far the least dependable amp I ever bought.



    So I'm curious what the crowd would float these days.
    A '57 Classic, MIJ from USA parts.
    HCEG Existentialism: I buy guitars, therefore, I am.
    Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
    I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

    Also, a Lazy J 20 is on my short list:

      Of those that are in production, the Rivera Chubster. I play the earlier incarnation the R55-12, and it's vary good sounding and versatile as well

        Over the past year, I've grown bored with this amp, and that's a good thing. It never surprises me, and I'm never fighting it. I just set it on clean, roll the Volume as high as it will go, EQ at 12 o'clock, Reverb at 2 or 3, the Master at whatever, and then it seems like I'm never more than a quarter turn away from getting exactly the sound I need at all times. I like that.

              Mesa boogie f-30.



              Great tones, loud enough for gigging, silent recording function, a great reverb. Overall a great plug and play amp.. Only needs delay.

                I just bought a Fender Princeton 112 Plus. It may be not the best amp ever created, but for some reason the clean tone really agrees with me and I like its looks. It's lightweight, and you can't get more affordable. It sounds really great as is but I'm thinking I might see if an Eminence Red, White, and Blues puts it over the top.



                not my video but it was easier than finding a pic:

                  VHT Special 6 Ultra should also be on the list for a great value. Tube amp, attenuator, effects loop, essentially three channels.

                          Well, it depend on wht kind of budget were talking about. Ifi here's no limit then I think the Tone King Metropolitan would be my first choice. My Electra dyne is a 1x12 but It as big as a 2x12 so it is hard to recommend when talking about more portable 1x12s.

                          For a more modest budget I'm quite thrilled with my Ampeg GVT 15. Tons of character, loves pedals, spring reverb, and an FX loop. Everything I need in a 1x12 combo.
