    Edit: Sold my Line 6 shown below and bought the Marshall Microstack following the DSL50 with 1960TV cab. See pictures here: http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/squawk-box/477-marshall-dsl-series.html

    I have the Line 6 Spider II 210 Combo. It has 12 unique amp models, 7 different effects with 3 available simultaneously, 2 - 10" Custom Celestion speakers, 120W stereo, and weighs 54 lbs.

    Nice, I've got the 112 Spider 2. Just 75 watts, but it's a loud little monster.

    I've been thinkingn of getting one of the Spider III 15 watters, just to keep in the spare room and maybe for little fun jam sessions. I'm getting to be a big pansy, I don't want to carry around a big amp anymore!!

    A 1952 Chicago Music Corporation 30 Watt Valve amp, re-housed in a Bluesbreaker style cab (made with my own fair hands and holding a Celestion G12 75 Anniversary!), A marshall 15 watt for practice and a 50 watt Sound City.

    At this point the only amp I own that I didn't build is a 68 Deluxe Reverb.

    Of the ones I built there is an 18 watt Marshall 1974x clone 2x12

    Here's a pic!

    I also have a JTM22 (A JTM45 using 6V6's for power tubes) and I am currently tweaking a Lightning head that I just finished!

    I always wondered how those sounded, but I never had the courage to try one.

    When MF was selling those I could'nt scrape enough coin for new strings, I was playing through one of those cheap cheesy '80's practice amps that sounded like a weed eater. Picked it up for $10 from a local music store 'cuz it had no speaker. Wired together a 4X4" cab from a thick cardboard box and some boom-box speakers. I was literally saving like $5 a month to get an amp. I was like $25 away, and they discontinued those. Very frustrating, to say the least.

    I'm pretty happy with my Spider for plucking at home, and it's good for recording Metal and hard rock tracks, too, but I'm really jonesing for some good old fashioned low power tube tone. I'm hoping I can get my old Dickerson Mother of Toilet Seat amp going, there nothing like an overdriven class A!:D
