What amps/effects made now do you think will be legendary pieces of craftsmanship in the next 40 years, like the Mesa Boogie Mark I's and Vox AC30's of old?

Basically the boutique stuff, everything is so mass produced nowdays its not funny. The reason vintage items can demand such a high price is due to supply and demand... theres just not massive amounts of them floating around. all in all, it depends who the biggest rock star is in 30 years time and what they're using.

Soldano SLO, but they're all pretty much the same sound (from the early ones to the current ones), so "vintage" doesn't really matter.

I think the 65 Amps will be classic, but again, I doubt they're going to change their amp recipes anytime soon, so again, vintage won't matter because the newer ones will still sound just as great. There will be new models, I'm sure.

I don't think amp manufacturers will discontinue any models that continue to sell well (which would eventually make them prized vintage pieces). Things are much different today, with hundreds of amp makers instead of a dozen like the old days, so the whole premise of what will be considered vintage is probably not even realistic.
The only way that would change is if everyone suddenly wants modeling amps (if the modeling technology advances to the point where no one can tell the differences listening to models or the real thing).

Dr.Z amps... all of them.


Yeah, this brings up an interesting point. The hand-made amps that are made individually by one guy (I'm not sure if that's still the case w/ Dr Z [Mike Zaite]) have the most potential to become classic valuable vintage pieces. If the amp maker dies (like Ken Fischer of Trainwreck), the amps could potentially become ridiculously priced, & cork sniffers will always create a market for amps over $10,000 US. Even if Fischer had allowed someone else to continue making Trainwreck Amps, we all know they wouldn't be the same as if Ken made them himself. Sort of like buying an original Van Gogh painting vs a virtually identical original painted by someone else.

All I can see being a vintage collectible is the Mesa/Boogie Mark IV. I mean, look at the prices of the Mark IIC+.

Vintage instruments are like vintage cars, it's simply what you have to make do with at the time, but down the road it is legendary for some strange reason.

Doesn't matter what you think unless you're buying one

Teh III is priced the way it is because it's simply 'Used'. We're talking in the scope of 40 years from now. I think the III will definitely demand high prices in the future, but not as much as the IV, mainly because of the records associated with the IV.
#20
^ Yeah, I know, but the only real great thing on the IV is the Lead channel, which, I guess, could be the reason why it'd be worth so much.

Or, like you said, because of the milestones associated with the IV.

soursound will be very sought after.

i hope my old sunn cab and marshall lead 100 mosfet from 82 matter eventually haha but prbly not. i think the only things that will be really considered vintage is stuff handmade or already considered vintage today.

I was going to say the high-end Line 6 modelling stuff, but technology will get better and they'll look relatively outdated, so maybe not.



^Ah yes, but doesnt that mean vintage?

you have to look at some good amps that were discontinued for various reasons. vox AC50 AC100 the ones with the marshall channel built in. anything mesa thats not currently in production. mesa doesn't reissue anything. when they are gone, theyre gone. I really thought the AD5 was rare until orange reissued it and cashed in on the collector market. bastards. the zvex nano head will eventually stop being made since zach has all the remaining NOS mini vacum tubes to make the thing.

P.S. nothing from squier, or blackstar, or orange made in china will EVER be worth more than what you paid. not only is it mediocre china product but its mass produced. what a noob.

I kinda think the classic vibes might be. And the TT is a great amp IMO. And if its ever discontinued it will be a classic 20 some odd years later.

ohhhhhhhh snap. yeah thats gonna be collectible if they stop making it long enough to jack the used price up. them out of nowhere............WHAM they start selling new ones for a bit less than the vintage ones but still more than what its worth. just like the AD5. unless orange goes out of buisness, its over speculating.

The Orange OR50 will become a legend some years down.
Older Diezel Vh4's (blue faces) as well as herberts.
The Mesa Mark V is already setup to be a collectible item.
Probably the pod 1 since it will be considered a relic, and who knows, it might still sound good.
Bogner ubershalls will become the thing of legends once they run out or stop making them.

Mesa does it all the time. It makes for either finding great deals on super nice amps or overlypriced deals on nice amps

Well if digitech make a new whammy pedal then the current ones (like the ones from the 90s) will be sought after because people always claim stuff is better if its older.

It's mental, i can't hear any difference between an old whammy and the new one and the new one has midi capability at least yet people insist the older sounds 'warmer' /!?!! They're both digital ffs xD it's just pitch shifting!

Why is it the spring chickens are so sought after? S: It's just a basic spring reverb... i mean don't a lot of amps have that built in anyway? I know a lot of marshalls do
