Tech21 'Leeds Deluxe' Private Stock. This has been my go-to amp for about 12 months. Well, pre-amp really...power is provided by the PA.
Do hybrids count? I still have my old mans KMD GV60 which has a solid state front end and two 6L6 power stage....

I would love to use a JC120 but it is too heavy for me. Instead I use a JC40 as my main amp now. I like to run my fx in stereo and the amp allows for that. I do not get as much spread and separation but it still adds a little depth. The amp is light weight and loud enough for any application I have run into. I do think that my dirt pedals are a bit harsh but still very usable (I tend not to run a lot of dirt except for an effect: octave type of thing). I do like to add a dry amp: I run a boutique JCA GR 1.6. incredible amp.

Your bassist and drummer must hate you :D
Yeah, but the day I actually turn it that loud, I figure some windows are gonna blow. But I guess I do like having it for attenuated purposes at rehearsal. My Tiny Terror does have a sweet-spot that's far too loud for the room, but the Unleash helps to tame the volume.

JCA GR is not a ss amp... I am thinking about getting a VOX MSB25... nutube tech which is micro tubes but it sounds ss to me. I have only played it once and I thought it sounded good. The mids were a smeared and that made it difficult to dail in a solid LP w/HBs sound. I do also own a JC120 head.

Fender SK Chorus 20

Excellent for cleans with its 2x8" and stereo chorus, but very fizzy/fuzzy overdrive… Yuk!.


It looks big on this internet pic, but is as small as the:

Vox VT 20 + (have a 12AX7 though)
