Amplifiers are also an important component in one’s signal chain. Here are a few amps I use, depending on the situation:

 

1978 Roland Cube 60 (1 x 12” speaker 60W RMS. The speaker is a Carvin PS-12)

 

1984 Peavey Special 112 (180W RMS into 1 x 12” Scorpion speaker. Headroom for days, weighs a ton!)

 

1995 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe (55W into 1 x 12” Celestion speaker. Heavily modded; great jazz, blues, and rock amp. Also weighs a ton…)

 

2011 Fender Mustang III (100W RMS into 1 x 12” Celestion speaker. Modeling amp with some adequate sounds, but “natural” sounds are just OK.)

 

2005 Carvin AC-100D (100W RMS amp designed for acoustic guitar and/or keyboards. On-board digital effects)

 

Ca. 2000 Princeton 65 (65W into 1 x 12” replacement Eminence Cannabis Rex speaker. This is my workhorse amp, and it lives in my car. I’m currently using a TC Electronics HOF reverb unit instead of the on-board reverb, which needs attention.)
