My Mesa F-50 widebody combo. For whatever reason mine had brown tolex with a wheat grill cloth. Whatever, I love it. Decided to turn it into a head (without damaging the combo's body of course). That's still a work in progress. Still in the ugly unfinished period.

Peavey Valveking 212 - After 8 years of playing with a Marshall Valvestate I came on these boards and realized what the differences between SS and Tubes were, and I started to go to Guitar stores and try out different types of amps. Bought the VK on Ebay for 360 bones and I've just recorded my band's first LP with this amp. I think the tone is much better than on our previous EP, and I even borrowed a Mesa Stiletto for that album. I probably didn't know how to EQ that amp though. Anyway, I've discovered that I really like JCMish type amps, so I will probably trade the Peavey in for JCA50, JCM 2204 or something.

My Laney LC15R, it took me a while to understand why it sounded better and why it was more responsive than my previous amps... BECAUSE OF TUBES!

Mine was an Orange Tiny Terror. Had a Fender Frontman 212R before that. Just the warmth and crunch I got from it blew my mind. But I had that about 4 or 5 months then upgraded to a Marshall Vintage Modern and holy Christ on a bike I'm never gonna need another amp. Had it nearly two years and it still sounds incredible, does everything's I need it to so I'm gonna be keeping it for a very long time, absolutely nothing wrong with it,.

Those thing came out of the factory in tons of colors, I think it was Mesa showing off their custom tolex and grill options. My f30 was forest green with, I think a wheat grill. Looked pretty awesome.

Peavey 5150 212

It was my first tube amp and part of my current rig which I adore right now. My first amp was a Line 6 Spider III and, to be honest, I quite liked it. It was more than I could've asked for in a bedroom practice amp with more than usable tones when you dialed it in correctly. I had that amp, and solely that amp, for the first few years of my playing. Then I decided to go for it and picked up my 5150 and I never looked back. I still practice with my Line 6 (because let's be honest, a 5150 isn't very practical for bedroom practicing ) but I don't think I'd ever be able to buy another amp that wasn't tube. More than just the warmth of the tone, it's the nuances of playing a tube amp. You get all the little responses and feel through the amp while you play that it just... I don't know... it feels like it's a living thing, something you're in control of and it's one with you. You get the sense that you have complete control over your tone at any given time and you can change the slightest thing just by playing through it a little bit differently. Character is the word I'm looking for, and there's no better option than a genuine all tube amp to get that feeling.

Got my first tube amps not too long ago. The first was a VK112 and I'm like, I'm never going back to SS. Then within a month I decided to upgrade, and went a DRRI. I'm definitly never going back.

Laney VC30. Bought it about six months ago. It's a great amp, I like it and I don't need any effects. It's also very sensitive, I can notice a clear difference between 7,5m and 3m cables and that's why I don't like using my chorus pedal. It cuts too much treble because of the long cable. Great clean and very good overdrive sounds. Good for Guns N' Roses and that kind of hard rock sounds, not really for anything heavier but I don't really play anything heavier (sometimes Metallica). It sounds good at bedroom levels and better than any solid state/digital I have tried at any volume level.
