Fortunately I've never sold anything I liked either. Anything I've sold was always in the direction of moving forward. It's always worked out that way too.

I can remember each one and remember the negatives that eventually made me sell. No interest in going back at all.

Now that you mention it, with the exception of the Carr Mercury, I've always been a bit disappointed with the reacquisitions :hmm:.

I'll need to keep that thought in mind.

I had a lead 12 Marshall years ago. Just acquired another for nostalgia. They aren't bad little amps. I like it when I dont want to rattle the windows :p

Part of me misses my old Dual Rectifier and F-30. But given my space, it's not so practical to have a bunch of amps alongside my Archon, Kemper, and Axe-FX.

Marshall Vintage Modern 2266C 2x12 combo. I’m 99% sure I will end up buying another one at some point as they’re just such a great, compact crunch machine!!

Not quite the same amp, but having had a Supro Dual Tone (which I loved but didn’t have enough volume/headroom) and then changing to a Supro Thunderbolt (which had the volume/headroom but wasn’t as characterful to my ears) I have now gone to a Supro Neptune, which is essentially a lower gain 2x12 version of the Dual Tone. And kicks ass. :)

In 1959 I bought a Sears Silvertone tube amp with a 15 inch speaker that had sweet tones. Problem was that the speaker would blow at gig volumes. And also no gain control. I have no record of the model name or number, but I would recognize one if I saw one. We didn’t have the ability to select new speakers then like now. So I traded for a Fender Pro blackface in 1963. The Fender sounded good to me only at very high volumes, so I never bonded with it.

In summary, I’d like to have the old Silvertone back. I know what speaker to put in it, and maybe a gain and master control too. Might not be able to afford one though.

I traded a Marshall 1959 reissue for a Sunn Model T I had been drooling over for years. Loved that Marshall but they are easy to find and Sunns go for a small fortune when you can actually find one. It blew up on me a week later and cost me and arm to fix.. Would love to get another Super Lead but just can't find one that sounds decent for a reasonable price anymore.

Blues Deluxe Reissue, I wound up getting back the one I sold for less than I sold it for from a different dude.

Now it’s gone and I think I’m good with amps, unless I find a Silverface Princeton for a reasonable price when I happen to have money.

Someone is currently selling one of the 1-watt Marshall Anniversary heads in the classifieds here. That's another one I wouldn't mind getting back. Super fun for messing around at home.

Nada! When I move things down the rod I'm done with them at this point. I actually completed that cycle circa Y2K when I dumped all my Peavey and Mesa stuff and went back to Tweeds and BF Fenders.

:cheers2:

I'm currently on my second Fender Supersonic 22. Would love to get another Allen Accomplice and Avatar 18 Watt, both of which I foolishly sold...and maybe another Princeton Reverb.

Anything I have sold was not worth keeping, so I am not going back there. My only regret was buying a CAA OD100 when I could have bought a SLO. After updating the OD to PT100 specs, it still didn't do it for me and I got rid of it. Had I bought the SLO, I would probably still have it.

I’d take another early 2nd generation BE-100 that has 5 12ax7s. That was the best sounding one I had, liked it better than the one with the 2017 updates. Just don’t really have a reason to get another one at the moment

I heard a BF Vibrolux Reverb this week that just sounded amazing. In the past, I’ve owned a BF VR and two SF VR’s. I wanted to buy that amp on the spot. Didn’t, bought an R8 Les Paul instead. Still thinking about the Vibrolux though.

I also have a lead on a vintage 18 watt Marshall that I sold a couple of years ago that I’d love to have back.

I also sold a ‘63 Vibroverb RI a year ago that I miss bad.

I need to stop selling great amps.
